Thunderbolt Desktop Compatibility

AJA testing and results are provided as a guide only to help AJA customers understand roughly what raster, rate and compression to expect from a host configuration. Control Room software used for I/O testing, other applications may impact the host CPU, GPU and memory differently, so results can vary.

While Thunderbolt supports daisy chaining and other Thunderbolt devices connected at the same time, any performance issues should be tested with only the AJA device connected to rule out any potential issues.

Please note that Thunderbolt compatibility results are from tests run in Control Room and performances may vary in other applications.
