    I actually just put in my order last night for a GIGABYTE AERO 15-X9-9RT4K5MP

    Specs


    OS: Windows 10 Pro
    Display: 15.6" 0.11 Inch Thin Bezel AUO UHD Adobe RGB 100% 3840x2160 IPS anti-glare display LCD
    CPU: Intel Core i9 8th Gen 8950HK (2.90 GHz)
    RAM: 32 GB DDR4
    Video: NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2070 GDDR6 8GB
    Storage: 1 TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD
    IO: USB 3.1 Gen1 (Type-A) x 2
    USB 3.1 Gen2 (Type-A)
    Thunderbolt3(Type-C)
    mini-DP 1.4 & USB3.1(Type-C)
    HDMI2.0
    SD Card Reader(UHS-II)
    Weight: 4.4 lbs
    Price: $2,849

    Convinced myself to downgrade and buy a Mavic 2 Pro with the difference. I can upgrade to 64GB of RAM later if I need it and only have to spend another $140ish to get a second NVMe m.2 SSD (500GB) under the hood to use as a scratch disk.

    Renewing this one since I'm shopping for a mobile workstation that can playback 8k at 1/2
    and do quick renders working off of TB/USB 3 external drives:

    Processor, how important? Older Intel good enough?

    RAM - How important? 16GB enough?

    GPU - All data I've seen based around gaming. For video rendering times, is 1080ti close in speed to any 20 series?

    Display - Gigabyte AERO has 4k "AMOLED" with 100% DCI-P3. Worthwhile vs the sRGB the other brands have?

    Thanks for any advice

    So feedback regarding my specific machine mentioned above. I'd probably return it if I could and get something bigger with better air flow but I guess it'll do for now. The reason is thermal throttling. It can't handle the heat so the CPU has to throttle big time when rendering. As for playback, it can do 8K 12:1 at 1/4 smoothly but starts to struggle at 1/2. I'm okay with that since I edit on a 1080p monitor.

    How about in RCXp with GPU debayer enabled? I was under the impression that something like an 8GB RTX could 8k full res at 24p+?

    I'm reading that you'll need at least a full 2070, 2080 (not the Max-Q version) or a newer Quadro 5000+ to get close to that

    I'm wondering if playback times correspond closely with render times.

    I'm debating a 2060 vs a 2080. Some of the thin 2060 laptops under $3,000 have a 4k screen with 100% P3

    VS.

    similar price full 2080 workstations that have lousy screens not good for color work.

    Would anyone else recommend buying from HIDevolution or Pro-Star?

    I found an EVOC model with good specs for good price. Thanks

    I ended up with the SAGER NP8454-S (CLEVO PB51RF) from Xotic PC, $2,400 shipped.

    15.6 OLED 4K
    Intel i7-9750H
    NVIDIA 2070
    64GB RAM

    Is enough to run Raw 7k from Monstro in a timeline in Adobe or Resolve at 1/2 before effects. Fast renders.

    Best overall available laptop for the price combining display and power/GPU with portability.

    Delivery took a few months, glad I bought it though.

    I've been very satisfied with an MSI GT72, about 4 years old now. Phenomenal cooling, the fans never speed up enough to hear them and no thermal throttling under workloads that used to melt the DC power cords on my old Toshiba.

    Newest gen mobile chips use a fraction of the power of previous ones, so will run cooler. The Gen 9 i7 equivalent to my 95 watt i7 6700 series only draws 17 watts. Don't think that necessarily applies to the GPU's though.

    Small and light is not going to cut it thermally for heavy workloads. A true mobile workstation chassis is much more useful, if a pain in the ass to cart around due to the weight.
