Lattice ECP5 PCI Express Card

I received the Lattice Semiconductor ECP5 PCI Express Development Kit today! A few gratuitous unboxing photos follow:

Hi,

Did you try to do a DMA throughput test to system memory? I.e do a speedtest from the fpga to the memory directly? Lattice provides a tool for that with the board. What speed did you achieve?

I am trying to see how fast I can DMA write to system memory(not fpga board memory) over pcie(x4).

(I haven't bought this board yet...still trying to figure out the real life throughput..)
