Is there a slot requirement for the MXO2 mini running on a MacPro?
Does it need to be in the 16X slot or can it run in the 4X slot?

Thanks very much

x1 slot, from the MXO2 User Guide:

The Matrox PCIe host adapter is a standard low-profile PCIe x1 card designed to operate in an Intel-based Mac system.

Thanks

Thanks Jeff.

Any PCI-express slot is fine. If no X1 slots are available, you can any other pci express slot running at a higher electrical rating (X4, X8, X16).

Thanks Joe and Jeff for responding
I asked because I want to install a SATA USB3 PCIe card and it requires a faster slot to operate at full speed.
So now I can move my Matrox PCIe card down to a lower slot.
Thanks again!

Michael
