The Graphite PCIe card efficiently distributes the system workload, eliminating the performance issues traditionally associated with all-in-one systems. The robust PCIe card manages Graphite's internal Carbonite switcher, RAVE audio mixer and switcher frame buffers. This processing is completely independent and operates using its own OS. This allows the main PC resources to be dedicated to efficiently recording and playing back XPression graphics and clips.
The Graphite hardware card is so independent that even if the PC crashes, the switcher and mixer will continue to function as long as power is still connected.
