The hard working people at Apple have written a document that is VERY helpful for those out there who have MacPros and AJA Kona capture cards. It tells what the optimal PCI Express slot configuration is with various models of Intel Macs…basically which slots the cards should go in.

It also goes into the optimal RAM configurations, bounce buffer management, and a couple trouble shooting tips.

In reading this, I know that the configuration on my current machine is wrong…I have the Kona 3 card and fibre channel cards in the wrong slots. Time to crack open the Mac and remedy that.
