Connecting via PCIe

PCIe capture cards plug into a PCIe slot in your computer. Check the information printed on your card’s box to determine the number of PCIe lanes your card requires. For example, depending on your PCIe card, it will require a x1, x4 or x8 PCIe slot. It’s worth noting that you can insert PCIe cards into higher capacity slots than they require. For example, a x4 lane PCIe card can be inserted into a x16 lane PCIe slot, though not the other way around.
