Virtex-6 FPGA Integrated Block for PCI Express - Does not train as Gen 2 in Intel P45 Express System


TheVirtex-6 FPGA Integrated Block for PCI Express does not train to Gen 2 speed when in x1, x2, or x4 mode in an Intel P45 Express system. However, it does train to Gen 2 as a x8.


When using the BIOS patch from January 21, 2010, the system does not attempt to train as Gen 2 in x1, x2, or x4 mode. The system does not advertise that it is Gen 2 capable. This a limitation of the system and not the endpoint.
