Need some advice on splitting up a 16X slot into 2 x slots.
I’ve been running a PCI-e 1X in a 16X slot since Z87 days.
Using an Intel chip with GPU on die has worked fine.
But want to use an AMD Ryzen 2/3, which means a 1 x slot Mini ITX must share an 8X basic GFX card, and a 1X Audio card using a split riser.
I have no idea if this can be done and buying 2500 worth of components is forcing me to seek advice from anyone knowledgable.
I’ve been told that the Aspeed AST2500 would easily handle my 2D needs which is basically monitoring signals, no 3D, no FPS requirements.
But don’t know if Windows 10 can access the ASPEED Chip, or if I get Windows 2012, if it’s compatible with my audio interface.
Here’s the GFX 8X and the Riser card I would use.
Any help is much appreciated.
