Yes perhaps. Btw It seems that I need also a bit of warming up the chip so it 
works correctly :/ I will investigate. Also It seems I'm stuck with the PCI-E 
device mirroring on all addresses. I already programmed all values to match 
award values and it still does not work :/ I signed up for VIA datasheet, so we 
see what will happen.
