Quo Motherboard - Any OS

Apologies in advance if there is already a thread on the quo, located here: http://quocomputer.com/projectq/ I searched but didn't find any.

I know it's not out yet, but I was hoping someone with knowledge of thunderbolt could let me know. I was basically wondering if the thunderbolt port on this motherboard will leverage whatever PCI-X graphics card is placed in the motherboard, or if it will only use the Intel HD4000.

I have 2 27in cinema displays that I would love to be able to give more power to (basically unusable for anything besides light development/nothing 3D rendering related on the latest macbook pros) and was curious if this would even work.

  1. This sort of "any OS" project has been tried before and has failed for various technical and legal reasons.

    Aside from that, it sounds like you want to attached a couple Thunderbolt Apple Cinema displays to your system and take advantage of Lucid to leverage a stand alone GPU. Is that correct?

    Or, are you using non-TB Cinema displays?
  2. I'm using 2 27-in apple thunderbolt cinema displays. I'd love to be able to use them on a non-mac basically.
  3. You should be able to connect them to your TB port on the motherboard and drive the displays with the integrated Intel GPU (model depends on the CPU being used in the motherboard). Reviews are mixed and whether you can actually use Lucid to take advantage of a stand-alone video card.
