With an firmware not updated since «Last update May 9, 2011»
I think it's safe to say that this card will never work at higher
sample rate - running linux.

It's not «legacy» on the Sound Devices web site, i wonder why.

The list keep an old talk on this card and this problem : 


Older : 


And i can quote a support email from Sound Devices where i asked about
this issues - wich is not an issue for them for sure.
