Fastest Powermac G5 Quad/PCI-Express
« on: November 30, 2018, 04:14:37 AM »

the author concluded that the PMG5 Quad just cant acheive SataIII speeds;
so its best to use only SataII level devices for these machines;
PCI-E SataII controller + SataII SSD's,
imho i think a pci-e x4 controller such as the e4i from Sonnet
combined with some older SSDs (OCZ vertex ??) should be able to reach the bottleneck of the G5's performance
without wasting hardware that would perform better on a more modern intel platform
