Is Thunderbolt AIC Worth it over Firewire PCI-E?
I'm wondering if it's worth purchasing a Thunderbolt 2.0 or 3.0 AIC.
My current plan for using this card is for input of an older firewire 400 audio interface that I would like to purchase (I know I have to buy adapters for this to work, lol).
I'm currently running an ASRock x99x Killer board. From the reviews I have read on newegg, and the like, most of the 3.0 AIC cards either have almost no reviews or really terrible ones. The 2.0 cards seem to be better regarded.
I ask because it seems the AIC cards can be a pain to get working, but I also know, from music forums I visit, people have run into driver problems trying to use firewire pci-e. I thought Thunderbolt would be a better option, and more future friendly since Firewire is on the way out.
Thanks for any help, also I hope this is the right spot to post this question.
