Lots of Video Editor or Graphic Designers guys want to buy a more productive laptop and value for money, the main topic is Video Editing and Graphic Designing Laptop Requirement, Most of you recommend building a PC, its a good idea but I think that prices are just touching the sky in PC Parts all the way buying a gaming laptop is better than building a PC. As we know the price point of graphics cards is just got increased by 60-70%. There is one more advantage for my School/College guys: portability is a plus point in this. Anyway, in this article, we’re going to discuss what Should be the requirement for a Video Editing/Graphics Designing laptop.
Video Editing and Graphic Designing Laptop Requirement
|CPU||Intel Core i7/i9 or AMD Ryzen 7/9|
|RAM||16GB or above|
|Storage||512GB SSD or above|
|Graphics Card||GTX 1660ti / RTX 3060 or above|
|Display||IPS Panel 1080p or above|
More than 90% of video editor uses Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Da Vinci Resolve(Open Source) and graphic designers uses Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and XD. in this way we’re going to choose parts that suits their enviroment make work flow better.
For CPU I think everyone should go with Intel Core i7/i9 or with AMD Ryzen 7/9 Latest generation like intel core 11th gen or AMD 5000 series.
In my thinking I don’t want that anyone face any performance issue so i discontinued the Core i5 or Ryzen 5 because they are in budget but only good for current usage not for the future use as of now most of us do video editing on Full HD (1080p) resolution in future the market will be of 4k or 8k, that why we didn’t choose these low budget processors.
RAM for Laptop
For Ram segment I will recommend that go with 16 GB with extra slot of RAM for future upgrade. Because in present the minimum requirement of video editing software is of 10GB in that way we going with 16GB RAM.
Storage for Laptop
In storage the only recommendation is NVME SSD, the time of old mechanical HDD is over the time is of Super Fast NVME SSD, go with it but got with minimum 512GB SSD or 1TB SSD recommended. because Adobe Premiere Pro or illustrator Project files going to take space so with a good backup option 1TB is quite good. here a tip keep a external HDD or SSD for sharing your project.
Graphics Card for Laptop
In this segment the GPU resource is majorly used by Video editing software, in this a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660ti or above like RTX 3060 is enough for pushing your work at top notch. The Nvidia GPU’s are better than AMD GPU’s because most of architect of software is suitable for Nvidia cards, Go with GTX 1660ti/RTX 3060 or above options.
Display for Laptop
For Display the only recommendation is IPS Panel with 100% sRGB(Standard RGB) no one want a dull colors in their workflow.
