So i am thinking about getting a black magic intensity pro shuttle but im looking at http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/intensity/tec... and at the very bottom under instillation it says i need a x58 based motherboard and i have a Z68xp-ud4 with usb 3.0 i was just wondering if anyone knows if my mobo will work or not.
I built my system using the ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe MOB and a 2600K i7 5.0GHz Turbocharged Extreme CPU. I flashed my BIOS to Version 0902 2011.10.06 update and OC my CPU to 4.4 GHZ. 8 gigs of G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600. I am using 2 usb cards and 2 Blackmagic Intensity pro cards. I have successfully ran 4 Logitech C910's and 2 Sony CX550V camcorders with Desktop Presenter running 16:9 HD material and have yet to break 34 percent CPU usage. Thus far the system has runs flawlessly. I am using Toolbox with Logitechs wireless Keypad. I am also using Many Cam and Magic Camera.
My setting are Preferences/Performance DTP 30fps/Highest with Canvas Size of 720p. Broadcast: Flash/H.264/1280x720/30fps bitrate 2000. Audio at Stereo/96/44.1
OS: Win7 Pro 64 SP1
CPU:Intel i7 2600K Quadcore OC to 4.4GHz
Mobo:ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe Rev 1.xx
GPU:AMD ATI Radeon HD6950 (2Gb DDR5)
RAM:8GB (2x 4G Gskill Sniper DDR3 1600)
OCZ OCZ750FTY 750W Fatal1ty Series Power Supply
CPU Cooler:Corsair H80 Water Cooler
OS Drive: OCZ Vertex 3 60Gb
Scratch Drive: WD Black Edition 1 TB
Cap.Cards: 3 Black Magic Intensity Pro
so some people have used z68 boards but no guarantee it will work with your board
Thanks for the reply greg but i think the intensity pro card is different from the intensity pro shuttle only because its usb 3.0 which is why it is saying that it needs a certain motherboard i managed to find someone that said their UD5 mobo worked with the intensity pro shuttle so i have my hopes up at the moment
still not 100% sure if it will even work but ill just have to see when i get it.
