Am I reading this right, SIL 680 PCI P-ATA cards will work FULLY with Windows Vista 64-bit using the linked SIL drivers, without fragmenting the memory space and removing a chunk of usable memory?
I have a SIL 680 and I’m moving to Vista 64-bit for memory reasons, so this issue is of particular interest to me.
BTW, to all you who’ve tried Highpoint or Promise controllers with optical drives: don’t. Will not work properly (for all functions). SIL CMD680 is really the only properly working choice in town and has been for years (excl. Intel/AMD chipset integrated controllers).
