Several people have responded to my message regarding compatibility of 3.3V
and 5V connectors and peripheral boards. Those who have, unfortunately have
not followed my recommendation to post the response to this list and instead
have replied directly to me.
In any event, so far the respondents have misunderstood the spirit of my
question. Understand that my question about placing a 5V PCI peripheral
board in a 3.3V PCI socket is mainly concerning the "signaling environment",
NOT the power availability.
Again, the main questions are:
1) Are the latest motherboards coming out with ONLY 3.3V PCI connectors, or
do they still have 5V PCI connectors?
2) If the latest motherboards still have 5V PCI connectors, how long will it
be before we see 3.3V ONLY PCI connectors?
3) If a motherboard has ONLY 3.3V PCI connectors, what does that "do" to the
plethora of existing PCI plug in peripheral boards? (I think I know the
answer to this question, but I am asking so that I can say I asked the
experts and report the information to the president of my firm.)
