Intel boards where incompatible for a while (or shell we say; BM wasn't..), ever since the iCore...
And the best place to acknowledge this is by going to BM support website:http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support ... lse&os=win
U can see that the latest Intel boards are, well, discontinued...
I would be glad to be proven wrong, because I think much of Intel boards. They are reliable,
Fast, and not to fancy.
But Until then,
How about the Gigabyte Z77X-UP5 TH? is it compatible with Nuendo 5?
The main usage will be for post production commercials and features, and video monitoring
Will be via Blackmagic IntensityPro/Shuttle. Sound Card is FireFace FW version.
