It's just using a usb 3.0 cable for the reason that it¹s a very cheap cable that meets the needed specs for pcie or at least is close enough to work ok. Lots of things will cheat this way for example some cheap switches will use hdmi cables as stacking cables. Probably also doing some cheating in the pinout also to get it to all work over 8/9 pins provided by usb 3.0. (Hardwiring certain pins in each board for example there probably hardwire PRSNT#1.) _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-usb To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-usb-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
