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,
This is not part of the original design of the chipset controller and therefore we have not tested a similar configuration.We suggest you to check directly with the riser card or your system manufacturer to know if there is any known compatibility limitation.
