Default Magma PE6R4 PCIe x4 plugging into Intel Mac PCIe x16 slot?

I wonder if the PCIe host card of Magma PE6R4 can be plugged into Intel Mac Pro's PCIe x16 slot.

When I checked Magma's site "Products>PCI and PCIx expansion>6 slot PCIX Expansion", the host card is x4 (http://www.magma.com/6slot.html).

But if i type "PE6R4" in the SEARCH, it is x8. (http://www.magma.com/comersus_viewIt...?idProduct=183)


I found that the PCIe host card of Magma PE6R4 spec is:

PCI Express Interface card (x4) for standard
height or low-profile slots
Dimensions (H x L) 2.7 x 3.2 in (69 x 81 mm)
PCI Express Bus Specification: Revision 1.0a

The PCIe slot on the lastest Intel Mac Pro is:

Three open full-length PCI Express expansion slots5
One PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot
Two PCI Express 2.0 x4 slots
All slots provide mechanical support for 16-lane cards
300W combined maximum for all PCI Express slots

So no matter x4 or x8 the magma host card is, will it fits in the lastest Intel Mac Pro?

The PE6R4 host card fits in any of the PCIe slots in a modern Mac Pro. Usually it's best to put it in the slot farthest from the video card, in my experience.
