Blackmagic Design Intensity Pro 4k - setup question

PostTue Jul 16, 2019 7:29 pm

Recently purchased this card, but just found out the x4 PCIe slot on my Dell XPS 8700 was wired from the factory for x1 speed. So it's a x4 socket that runs on x1 speed.

I was wondering if there's a chance it will work for what I want to do.

I will be capturing 4k video from a Panasonic GH4, then using my GPU (which is taking up the only x16 PCIe slot) and encode to h264 and send to youtube live, using FFMPEG.

Do you think the card will operate fast enough with the x1 slot?

Thanks
