Dell or Compaq options for Ultrascope?
Dell or Compaq options for Ultrascope?
by Paul Nordin on Dec 27, 2010 at 6:42:24 pm

I'm looking to add Ultrascope to my new Davinci Resolve desk. The tested out systems in the Black Magic Designs specs area all either HP workstations (expensive) or motherboards. Is anyone out there using the Ultrascope with a more mainstream desktop from Dell or Compaq? It just seems that a HP workstation is a little overkill when Ultrascope is the -only- application I will use it for. However, if there is huge processing needs that I am not aware of that is a different situation.

I'll be sending the card both 8bit and 10bit SDI.

Cheers,
Paul

Search here, there has been talk about it.

If motherboard and gpu and cpu is good for the specs then i see no
problem with cheaper brand.

Only there is not 100% tested stuff then and you may have to change
machine, or some components etc.

My pc BM card machines were all self built based on chipset
that was approved. Just to give you an example.
