Re: [Xen-users] Choice between poor HAP performance or no audio? (VGA passthrough)

Can you list your Hardware specs (Specially Motherboard) Dom0 OS, Kernel 
version, etc? The only thing I would suggest is try with Xen 4.5 or downgrade 
to 4.3. I have a WXP x64 DomU with a Radeon 5770 and I didn't had to do 
anything fancy to assing it a whole 24 GB of RAM.
