Hello,

There has been a LOT of discussion in various forums, especically https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php, about which combinations of PLX-switched HBA controllers and U.2 SSD drive cages (1x 5.25" slot for 4x 2.5" SSD's; 2x 5.25" slots for 8x 2.5" SSD's) are compatible.  There is still no definitive answer, but I would like to find one for my use case...

Is the Intel AXXP3SWX08080 ("8-Port PCIe Gen3 x8 Switch AIC") (https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/124459/8-port-pcie-gen3-x8-switch-aic-axxp3swx08080.html) compatible with a Talos II (x8) PCI-e slot?

I didn't see any mention of this in the wiki.  Could somebody please shed some light?  Thanks!!
