Tyan k8we (s2895) and 7950GX2
Tyan just released BIOS 1.03L, which fixes the incompatibility problem between k8we and the 7950GX2.
More info here:
Have a nice weekend.
Are you running a 7950GX2 on any of your workstations? If you noticed the lack of 7950GX2 coverage on Phoronix, it's largely due to the less than satisfactory performance with Scalable Link Interface and Linux. If you're running SLI on any of those workstations, I would be interested in hearing your comments.
