    Multiple USB 3 cameras on separate USB 3 / 3.1 controllers



      I'm considering NUC as a solution for a video controller application, in which it receives image and video captures from two 4K USB 3 cameras.

      Each camera report a peak USB bandwidth of ~160MB/s.  Even with high-end X299-based machines, I could not get reliable results (no drops, no delays etc.) without connection at least one camera to a USB3 add-on card with its own controller.


      My question is, how many independent USB 3 / 3.1 controllers does a NUC (any NUC, for that matter) hardware includes?


      If anyone has any experience with multiple USB 3 cameras on NUC, it would be great.
