DSP Farm:

Check for incompatibility with older DSP Farms and Apple G4 computers. A rev "QC" or later of the AMCC chip is required for G4 compatibility. This revision number appears on the AMCC chip following number "5933". Older versions can cause your computer to hang while booting or when launching Pro Tools or DigiTest. QC or higher chip is required for compatibility with the PCI 2.1 specification introduced with the Apple Blue & White G3 and later models. Ways to identify these boards are in the grid below:

If a customer has previously updated their board (or received a refurbished card), the serial number will remain the same, but the board rev will be updated (and the AMCC chip will have "QC" or later). Cards with the rev "Q" chip can be upgraded for G4 compatibility. Please contact your local Digidesign office using the following procedure:
