    Best laptop configuration for 4K, 6K, 8K, h265 editing and grading

    I have read Canon's h265 4:2:2 is even harder than h265 4:2:0... but there are people still complaining with modern processors:

    In doubt what's the best?

    A Hexa-core i7-9750H or Xeon E-2276M with the Quadro RTX 5000 16GB VRAM?

    Or Octa-core i7-10875H with a RTX 2080 Max-Q 8GB VRAM?

    Or yet the Octa-Core Ryzen 7 3700X but with the RTX 2070 8GB VRAM?

    So, is it more crucial an Octa-core CPU or a 16GB VRAM GPU?

    The most expensive HP Zbook you can afford. You can't just say bigger CPU or bigger GPU is better, depends on the software. Only generic is faster and more memory is better, having better of both CPU and GPU is good.

    I'd make very certain I had a thunderbolt 3 port, and a pile of USB 3.x at the highest revision for better speed.

    Resolve, perhaps the most recommended today, I believe.

    Thank you.

    For resolve, I'd still recommend a good Zbook. But eight cores or more and best discrete graphics card you can get, and at least 32gb of ram. I'd still want thunderbolt too, just in case I needed an external GPU.

    You can look at the Avid hardware requirements and pick a machine off the top, needs will be pretty similar. Then compare specs. of that machine to what you think you want to buy. It's more than just processor this and GPU that to make a good machine.

    Dell has some nice workstation replacements too, but I don't know the model numbers or family. Some of the gaming machines work pretty well too.

    So, between a Hexa-core with 16GB VRAM GPU or Octa-core with 8GB VRAM GPU (see those example above please), what's the best for my goal?

    32GB RAM, of course.
