After getting about all I can out of my 2009 model Dell XPS i7, I'm finding that it's just not enough for 4K video from my Phantom 4, or even higher bitrate 1080-60p video. After looking at Dell, HP, ASUS etc. offerings, I've decided to go another route.
I've got it narrowed down to two CyberPowerPC units, the one I initially had my eye on, this one, has the i7 6800 processor, 32GB RAM, 256GB SSD and the 6GB GTX 1060 video card. I probably would have ordered it by now but it's out of stock or not yet available everywhere I look.
I started looking at what is available, and found this one, which has the slower 6700 processor, 16GB ram (which I'm sure is plenty for Vegas 13) and smaller 120GB SSD (which is a concern). However, it has the 8GB AMD RX 480 card - which is a potential deal maker since I've heard that Vegas works much better with the AMD cards than the Nvidia.
My biggest concern with the latter is the slower processor and smaller SSD - the SSD is easily rectified but trying to decide if i should hold out for the one with the 6800 processor when it comes available.
Is the 6700 processor with the 8GB AMD graphics card going to compare favourably with the 6800 processor partnered with the 6GB Nvidia card?
If the 6800 processor is going to make a lot of difference for longevity etc, I may hold off, and if the RX480 is a far better option than the Nvidia card I suppose I could sell the Nvidia and buy the AMD after the fact.
thanks in advance.
