2gb vram laptop worth buying?

Hey there,

I'm thinking about buying the maxed out new Huawei matebook x pro as an editing on the go and of course university machine.

Reading about the 4gb minimum vram requirements for cc 2019 I'm not really sure, because of the matebook x pro only having the Nvidia mx150 with 2gb of vram.

Does this mean that I cannot install premiere pro 2019 at all? Or is it just like a recommendation? Will only CUDA not work? For effect stuff and intense graphic stuff I got an desktop pc with gtx 1060..

Do you think it is worth getting the laptop or will it just be a pain in the ass only working with cc 2018

Thanks in advance.

Tim

PrPro 2019 will not be able to use that card ... period  ... so I wouldn't recommend that laptop.

Thanks for the quick answer Neil!

As I'm doing the effects work and heavier editing on my desktop pc, I don't know if I really need that giant graphics card in my laptop. Here and there some grading (possibly in davinci) and cutting on the go.

What will that mean for my opportunities in premiere using it without the graphics card?

Cutting and lumetri should be okay right?

Isn't premiere pro using just the processor for the preview rendering? Final render times after finishing the project are no problem for me. Otherwise I can also do that on the desktop pc.

Without GPU acceleration the rendering load falls back onto the CPU - and that CPU is only a low-power quad-core CPU with lesser performance overall than the previous-generation (7th generation) i7-7700HQ. As such, the render times will take substantially longer than with a more robust CPU or with GPU acceleration - for example, render times might become several hours for just a few minutes worth of content.
