    Splitting PCIe x16 into 2 x8 using passive riser card z68 chipset

    bamber

      Hi,

       

      I have found that the PCIe x1 slots on my z68 intel chipset motherboard lack sufficient bandwidth for my 3 firewire cameras (using 1394b expasion cards). However the PCIe x 16 slots cope admirably.

       

      Unfortunately I need one of these slots for my graphics card and I have 3 firewire cameras in use simultaneously.

       

      The question is: Will a passive riser card that splits the PCIe x 16 into 2 separate ports 'work' ?

       

      Thanks in advance,

       

      B.
