I am planning to buy a new laptop soon. I am looking at models with the GTX 860m and GTX 850m and wondering how well they will work with HitFilm. All the benchmarks I see seem to focus more on games and such. At some point I remember reading somewhere that memory bandwidth was the thing to look at for video edition. If that is the case, I am going to jump from 28.8 GB/s to 80.2 GB/s and my old card already was ok (not great at all), but I thought I'd rather ask, just in case.
Hi,The Nvidia GTX 860M & GTX 850M are both high end cards & perfectly capable of running HitFilm. The differences between the two cards is minimal though so if the price hike is much higher for the GTX 860M I'd go for the GTX 850M. Cheers,Ady

Hi,The AMD Radeon HD 8610G is not a supported GPU I'm afraid, it just wasn't designed to be used with intense 3D applications. Part of the reason why it has no dedicated memory, although it can share the main memory with the CPU.Cheers,Ady
I'm looking into getting a laptop to do some work when I don't have access to my desktop computer. But don't really know much about the specs of laptops.Would a laptop with the following be ok?Processor: AMD A8-4555M APU (1.6ghz, 4mb cache)Ram: 8GB DDR3LGraphics: AMD Radeon HD 7600GThe full spec can be found herehttp://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptops-netbooks/laptops/laptops/hp-pavilion-15-n266sa-15-6-laptop-black-21862438-pdt.html?themeid=383&token=pc-world-laptop-deals#wrapperOr if any knows where to get a laptop for about £400-£500 region that can handle Hitfilm, that would be useful as well.ThanksKoradin
Hi,Sorry for the late reply, but the system you have listed is not supported due to an incompatible Graphics Card.The only laptops within your budget will be ones that have the Intel HD 3000 / 4000 present, much like the one listed below. Places like Dell have laptops with the Intel HD present, maybe have a look there.Any problems, get back in touch.

What about aAMD Turion II Ultra M600 GPU
Hi,That appears to be a CPU, not a GPU, if it has an integrated GPU on the CPU it won't be compatible I'm afraid.
Thanks for the reply Ady, I was wondering about the following two cards, NVIDIA GT 840M 2GB or NVIDIA GTX 850M 2GB.Neither are listed on the requirements page, but am hoping they are just newer models than what is listed on that page.
Thanks again Ady.I realise that laptops aren't very upgradable, my desktop computer is over 18 months old and beats the spec of all laptops I've been looking at, but the way things are going I'll only be able to use a laptop for about 6 months. So I think I'll be going for the 850m soon.
No worries!If you need any further help, just come back, I'm always around.Cheers,Ady
Thank you for the information you guys have a great and helpful staff.but would the NVIDIA quadro FX 880M GPU be suitable? I didn't notice if you said it is.is the AMD Radeon HD 7600 GPU a good GPU.and will the HD Intel 4600 work better then the HD Intel 4000?
Hi,HitFilm was not designed to work with Workstation cards hence why they are omitted from the minimum & recommended requirements. It's not to say that the software will not run with the Quadro & FirePro range of GPU's, but it will perform much better with a Pro consumer card. So as much as the Quadro FX 880M will work, you'd be best off getting something aimed at the gamers market (GTX 770M or GTX 880M for example).I'm assuming you are referring to the AMD Radeon HD 7600G which is essentially the AMD equivalent of the Intel HD in that it is a Processor Graphics card. Sadly this card is not supported & is below the minimum specification for HitFilm.The Intel HD 4600 is more powerful on paper at least than the HD 4000, but whether you'd see a dramatic increase in performance between one or the other I'm not sure. But if you had the choice of an Intel HD 4000 or HD 4600, then naturally you should select the more powerful card.Thanks,Ady
Just curious what does HitFilm do for these situations?32GB of RAMMultiple CPU CoresAMD chip with their magical use ram like ram and graphics card thingy mabobberTwo graphics cards

Hi,Depends on what you mean by situations, but I'm guessing you mean what will HitFilm use if these items are present?32GB of RAM
