What PC/Mac hardware specifications are required for this to work?
Asked by: Kiruba
Because it requires 8 PCIE lanes, a CPU with enough lanes support is required to achieve 4K capture. The hardware specifications, while not explicitly provided by the manufacturer, would be very close, if not equal to those of the Blackmagic Design Decklink 8K Pro -https://bhpho.to/2L1BEDZ

Will this work over Thunderbolt 3 with a Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 650?
Asked by: Kiruba
The device may work but will only run as a PCIE X4 device, since it is running on a TB3 bus.
