    Without a brand stated, it's difficult to know for sure. In the "Features" section, it seems to say that it supports Windows, but doesn't mention OS X, which would make me inclined to believe that there are no drivers.

    Personally, I use a BlackMagic Intensity Pro - worked great in my 3,1 Mac Pro and now works great in my Hackintosh in both Windows and OS X - the only gripe I have with it is that it won't capture 240p video, so no N64 or SNES.

    You would need close ups of the chip packages to see if anyone has written any drivers in OS X for anything similar.

    Even then the drivers may not work right and could KP or even trash the system like I have seen with cheap Windows cards; so if I was in your situation I'd hunt on eBay for a used Blackmagic card with drivers that do work properly!

    Just get a Blackmagic Intensity Pro, it works great and is supported in many applications and throughout OS X. You can find them cheaper as a new 4k version came out at $189 but you can find the older ones.

    It's marketed under the name of "New Style" and it's a windows only card. You can find it much cheaper than that ebay seller you have listed. Here is a couple of links that will give you a better look at the card, and a full product description. It's a Trident SAA7160 Hybrid Capture Device.

    See that big chip at the back? That's a Trident chip driving that thing. The whole company went defunct in 2012. Don't expect to ever get any kind of support for that thing. I haven't seen one of those since the '80's.



    You can download Windows Device Drivers Here.

    It's a steaming pile compared to other devices such as the Blackmagic products.

    Well, that's all I've got, hope it helps...
