The thing with MIDI-1 SysEx messages is true for the EWS64 as well from my testing. Also, I thought fast systems with this card were simply unbootable instead of speed issues in games. D1stortion (talk) 00:42, 19 March 2013 (EST)

I got that Sysex information from the M3296 FAQ on the Terratec FTP server. I also recall that some faster systems (Athlon and above) will not (warm-)boot with this card. I think Terratec published a hardware fix for that (exchanging a capacitor on the card or something like that...). Pyrogx (talk) 04:03, 19 March 2013 (EST)
Yup, I read it too. It just came to my attention that the same applies to the EWS64, even if it's not listed in the respective FAQ. In any case, it makes sense since those cards are almost identical in many ways.
As for the speed issue, I think I read that it starts with about P200 or so... D1stortion (talk) 05:52, 19 March 2013 (EST)
I can't give facts about the M3296 as I do not own such a card. I have several EWS64s/XLs, also in fast systems and didn't experienced boot problems with these. Is there any source which cards revisions are affected? How does the boot up bug manifests?--Enigma (talk) 21:38, 19 March 2013 (EST)
My M3296 works without problems in a K6-III/400 system, but I modified the card according to the instructions by Terratec. Some time ago I had this card running in an AthlonXP system but I can't remember whether it worked properly or not. Pyrogx (talk) 23:10, 19 March 2013 (EST)
