Hi guys, I need some technical assistance. If the post is in the wrong section, I apologies and please move it to the right section. I am planning to upgrade my hardware (new laptop) to run VideoPad and other NCH apps. The big question comes regarding the GDU choice. There are lots of discussions and videos reviews on GDU’s but mostly with regards to gamming. Most tests are performance results on selected games which I must admit, is a good way of testing. Video reviews on GDU’s for video editing applications seem to be very scarce. However, I am looking at GDUs for use with video editing (no gamming), the thing we all do with VideoPad etc. Options I have at the moment is: 1) NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, or 2) NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU. The processor is an Intel i7 and 16GB memory, type DDR4 in both cases. (Price difference on the laptop, 3050 to 3060 is +/- $250) Question is, which one will do the job and or, are these GDU’s an overkill for what I want it for? Also thinking of 4k jobs and so on. On my current i7 laptop, I often get VideoPad messages such as busy with reloading preview or some or other task that causes a delay before I can continue with editing. What part of the GDU specs are the important ones for video editing? Anybody gone through this exercise before? Please let me know your suggestions or recommendations. St Bosse
