   Would you describe which is ways  what you want,  how it works ?
   That will help us to decide PCIe  or USB  version, which is the first
   In our opinion, USB version would be better in first stage becasue it is

   Yes,  It will provide video output.

In other words, will it be used as an hardware accelerator, hence you

  It will handle video display in first stage. we try to accelerate more
  Do you need to handle the output ?
