~Osprey Digital Capture Cards for Standard and High Definition Content~

System Requirements for Success with HD

The Osprey high definition (HD) video capture cards require intense bandwidth across the system bus, CPU, and memory. The host computer system capabilities (CPU, RAM, and motherboard) must be capable of processing this amount of data. The following system requirements are required to achieve the best HD performance.

    • Install the Osprey video capture card in a PCI Express® (PCIe®) slot with direct lanes to the CPU or a Northbridge or IOH.
    • The selection of the CPU is critical. To process full HD video on both channels of the Osprey 820e, the minimum processors required are dual i7-3930K@3.2GHz. Use the table below as a suggested guide when selecting a CPU.Insert_O-700_820_Best-Practices_chartInsert_O-700_820_Best-Practices-slot_diagram
