Thread: Laptop for gaming and video editing

    Default Laptop for gaming and video editing

    Is this laptop good enough for Premiere Pro CS 5.5?
    About the laptop:

    INTEL Core i7-2760 2.4GHz, 6MB SmartCache
    8GBDDR3 SO-DIMM 1333MHZ (2x4Gb)
    AMD Radeon HD 6990M 2GB GDDR5
    500GB SATA 720RPM
    AMD Radeon HD 6990M 2GB GDDR5

    I know that Adobe is workin with nvidia but I don't have the money for nvidia 580M. So how is AMD 6990M with Premier pro?

    Well, with the ATi card you won't get the GPU acceleration unfortunately, so editing won't be as smooth as it could be. Is there perhaps an option for a GTX 460 or something in it? It's still going to be smoother than without GPU acceleration, despite being a lesser card.

    The latest version of Vegas supports GPU acceleration now, and it's REALLY effective. It works with ATI cards, too, so it might be worth checking out a trial version and seeing if you like it compared to Premier.

    Could you post a direct link to said laptop?

    Also, I can't imagine you needing 2 GPUs...Better to spend the money on as much ram for your laptop with Win-7 Pro. I've got a single Nvidia 1.5GB GPU with a I7-2820QM + 16GB of ram and it really shines in any task I throw at it.
