Default Will faster Mac kill 6042 errors ?

I use a 450MHz G4 and PT 5.1.1 and am discovering the charms of 6042 error "PCI bus too busy" on big sessions (notably those with a lot of stereo tracks).
I have seached other threads and the Anwserbase on the subject, and have not found the answer to this simple question :

Do faster G4 make things better (more power=less data clogging hypothesis) or worse (more speed=equal more data on the PCI bus)?

Thanks for any input on the subject

yes a larger buss at 133 is a wider highway to drive on. You can also end those pesky error by consolidating your files. redraw you fades then consolidate them. This will make you system run more effectantly. Good Luck [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

These errors are usually due to the data tranfer settings on your SCSI card........
I presume that you have an Atto fast/wide PCI SCSI card in your G4.....
Launch the Atto Express Protools application, and check that it's set for a data transfer rate of 10/20...anything higher and you'll get
the "PCI buss too busy" whinge..
