Hi,

Buying new laptop. I don't play video games so want to know if there's any benefit to a powerful graphics card, or is cpu the most important? Looking at Ryzen 7.

Thanks!

There may be a desired benefit to having a nvidia graphics card like the gtx 2060 or 3060 minimum as video and audio denoise tools, fx tools can utilize them to speed up processing and rendering.

The Ryzen 7 cpu can have integrated graphics that can speed up some of the fx tools and in rendering but not have the other speedup features requiring a nvidia gpu.

Many users claim a 3 to 8x reduction in production time with a nvidia gpu. Look for a laptop with the desired Ryzen cpu but with a high end nvidia gpu.

Interesting! I have recently started looking at a whole new stand alone system since GPUs are starting to come back down finally. I will concentrate most of my "extra" money for the CPU since I would prefer to have more flexibility in real time editing vs reduce the time it takes to produce. So in a perfect world you suggest the best Ryzen CPU I can afford along with an Nvidia GPU? Appreciate your help!
