Benchmark Test Results Sharing for Laptop on Vegas Pro

Hi Guys, I thought I create a thread for sharing benchmark results specifically for laptop systems so we have a guide how VP is on different laptop models specially with gtx mobile cards. (amd gpu on a laptop is super rare, if you found one, please link me up)

you can find the benchmark test here:

EDIT: Please add sony avc test render (Sony AVC Internet HD 1080p Render(s)

You can put some of these results in context against old desktops here: http://www.hyperactivemusic.com/vegaspro/vegaspro.html

Thanks Nick! Loving the improvements even on laptop systems.

Hope somebody using 1050/1060/1080 gtx mobile gpus share their results. It would greatly help people determine if newer gtx cards have real life effects.

Excited to see also ryzen laptops soon and hopefully equipped with vega gpus

Cornico,

I dont know really why it is not preferred but yeah you are right. We could drop the MC AVC test and put something else since no point really of having it as benchmark with lack of compatibility with newer gpus

 

so what do you think we can use?

You're right, have added it

I mean what do you think we can use to compare. I agree with you with the sony avc.

The purpose of this threaf is to compare systems espcially on laptops given different configurations of gpu and cpu.

I have read a lot of desktop benchmark but very little for laptops.

Ok.

But not necessary the most used format for each usergroup I think but the format that could stress the program and hardware. Which I dont have any idea as of now. Maybe others can recommend.

as of now, we can stick to xdcam and sony avc.

Thanks for your input

Comment: Laptop was bought 2 or 3 years ago specifically because I thought the AMD card would be good for Vegas. In view of the previous Nvidia tests, it doesn't seem to be (although those look like newer, more powerful laptops). I don't think I would obsess over getting an AMD card in a laptop next time.

The Intel Quick Sync Video (speed) render with R7 M265 acceleration was fast and gave a result that was difficult to tell in quality from the other renders. Maybe you other testers can try that, if it works? On my system Intel Quick Sync Video (quality) was not available. No idea why "speed" is available but "quality" is not.

What about HEVC/H.265 export ?

I do not have any laptop for editing. So I can not give any numbers on that subjekt. But I'm using UHDp30 HEVC for all my personal projects and I thing the demand for this formant will grow.

 

By the way, queensoft made an interesting observation where render performance is drasticalliy improved when the preview acceleration is set to the additional GPU :

And fastest one is render using Intel QSV + RX 480 for preview acceleration.

This may speed up Sony AVC rendering on laptops with QSV+GPU.

I don't think I have the ability to choose which GPU Vegas executes with, and so I think Vegas executes with the Intel graphics. I *think* the switching functionality is only in the full-blown AMD Crimson driver package (please correct me if I'm wrong). But I'm quite nervous of installing that as I have basic, solid AMD drivers that Dell have provided and updated. Does anyone think I should install AMD's Crimson?
