I currently have a PC with this configuration for 1080p25 projects:

MB Gigabyte Z370 HD3
CPU Intel i7-8700K
RAM 32GB DDR4 (2x16)
GPU EVGA GTX 1060 6GB
SSD SATA 500GB for O.S. (Windows 10)
CAPTURE CARD Decklink Duo 2

I would like to add a second Decklink Duo 2 to have 8 SDI inputs in total. With the current configuration the PCI-EX lines are not enough for me. What motherboard and processor can I use to make everything work?

Hi,

for the moment, if you want to keep your CPU but you have to upgrade your motherboard and your GPU

and change capture card

because by adding a second decklink duo 2, you will be restricted by the lack of CPU lanes

first try change motherboard for 2 pcie 3.0x16 (work in x8) like Asus rog strix z390 for example

with decklink quad 2 on cpu slot 2 : pcie 3.0 x16 (x8)

and replace GPU by RTX 2080ti if power allows it on cpu slot 1 : pcie 3.0 x16 (x8)

ans 1 ssd m.2 pcie 3.0 x4 on ssd slot 2 (chipset DMI 3.0 x4)

and later, for the best, replace the cpu with an i9-9900k



if you want to keep your duo 2 decklink and add a second duo 2

go to X299 MB and i9-10900x


or for new config, MSI MEG X670E ACE with cpu Ryzen series 7000 (but not use usb port 3.2 gen 2x2)

you can up to 12 in/out with 1 x duo 2 + 1 x quad 2
