Is this a Dual Head V10?

At first I thought this was 2 v10 cards on the carrier, but the stencilling indicated monitor A and B.

I currently have a V12 in my octane, would using this dual head v10 be noticeably slower using Maya/SI3D in terms of viewport performance? I have been on the lookout for years searching for a dual head solution for my two SGI 24” 1920x1200 monitors.

I’m thinking the DCD for the V12 would split the memory between the 2 heads, if this board contains 2 V10s, that would be 32mb per head vs 64mb per head using the DCD.

I would be courious to hear from others who have used the 32 mb and 128mb and noticed a significant increase in viewport performance in either Maya or SI.

Just thought of something.. the dual v10 has the special dual xio carrier. Now I’m wondering if I can install my v12 on the top and have the v10 on the bottom.
thoughts?

Just installed the v12 into the dual v10 carrier and it works perfectly. System reports both the V12 as the primary and V10 as the secondary and reports the correct memory amounts. Didn’t have to install any software, literally plug and play.
