    Question pci bus device time

    On the ep45 -UD3 boards it seems the only setting that is now "revealed" when you press (cntrl and F1) is the pci latency with 3 possible settings 32 64 and 128 ,I think it is.
    I leave it on 64,the default .
    I think the setting has something to do with the amount of time /queing time? your pci devices spend on the bus.

    Does anyone have any experience of better pc performance by adjusting the settings,with a particular gx card or anything?
    Im not worried about more details on the theory,I did adjust it on my old board and I didnt notice any change.

    Default Re: pci bus device time

    A higher PCI latency allows a resource-hungry card such as a graphics card or video capture card to get more bus time, thus increasing its performance. However it slows down the other cards and could lead to crashes or dropouts in certain applications.

    As for video cards, it only affects the old PCI ones so you don't have to worry about it. In practice, it's best to set it to 32. I have had a couple TV Tuners that wouldn't work properly with anything higher than 32, and i have heard of certain professional soundcards doing the same.
