  • Ownership: 1 day to 1 week


Pros: Easy to install. Works flawlessly with Steinberg MR816x firewire audio interface. This is the only PCIe firewire adapter I recommend

Cons: I was initially getting audio dropouts until I disabled CPU throttling (C1 C3 C6/C7 and EIST) in the BIOS. Not the cards fault though. After tweaking the BIOS everything worked perfectly

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Focusrite Safffire Pro 40

Pros: Works great with Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 DAW interface.
Easy to install.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you're using a Focusrite interface, this is the firewire board that you want. Works great in Cubase, as well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Pro Tools or any DAW

Pros: Texas Instruments firewire chipsets are best for DAW purposes. This card is the only one recommended on the Avid site for Pro Tools hardware requirements (and the hardware recommended there is best for pretty much any DAW). I'm using it in Windows 7 64-bit, and had no driver issues. Smooth installation. The card also has a power input, which is useful if you're running a recording interface (or other device) with phantom power.

Cons: A little pricey for a firewire card, but worth it if you need stability.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks flawless with T.I Chipset and Windows 7

Pros: I am a musician and I still use M-Audio firewire interface. This is one of the recommended chipsets for M-Audio products and I am using it on an ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 MOBO. I am using Windows 7 x64 SP1 and it loaded instantly upon installing.

Cons: Not a PCI slot so you need 1 molex to the back of it for 6 pin power. Feels a tad flimsy being in a tin PCI-E slot. I won't knock an egg because it isn't the manufacturers fault for the form factor.

5 out of 5 eggsTI Firewire Chipset on PCIe card

Pros: Many Firewire audio interfaces work best with the TI firewire chipset. On my new DAW build, the motherboard didn't have any PCI slots and didn't have a TI firewire chipset on the motherboard (Asus p9x79 ws). This firewire card works perfectly with Steinberg MR816 audio interface

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i verified that this particular card was the TI firewire chipset. Dropped this into the pcie slot and installed my Firewire audio interface with ease. No spikes in latency according to dpc latency checker
