Is a dedicated video card necessary?
I'm up for a new laptop at work soon, and was thinking of requesting one with a dedicated video card. The main reason is to assist with editing of movies which I insert into Storyline2, but I think it would improve Storyline performance as well (currently some large files take minutes to save, but this may be more a RAM problem than a video one).
I have two questions:
1) Will a dedicated video card (as opposed to built in video processing) improve Storyline2 performance? (Will files save faster? Will video/audio editing in Storyline be glitch/delay free?)
2) Will gaming video cards (that's all that's available on the laptops I've been offered) help me with my video processing?
I'm using Cyberlink PowerDirector for video processing. The video card I'm being offered is in Dell computers. It's a NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M with 2GB GDDR5.
Thanks in advance.
