Inexpensive Graphics Card for Notebook Video Editing?

I'm trying to decide which graphics card would be best suited for HD video editing. It needs to be an OpenGL 2.0–compatible graphics card, and for the notebook I am tossing up between these options:

* NVIDIA® GeForce® 8400M G (Dedicated 128MB VRAM, up to 384M TurboCache RAM)

* ATI Mobility™ Radeon® HD 2600 with up to 756MB of HyperMemory (512MB of dedicated GDDR2 VRAM)

* ATI Mobility Radeon™ X2400 with up to 1024 MB of HyperMemory™ (256 MB of dedicated DDR2 VRAM, up to 768 MB of shared system memory) supporting Microsoft® DirectX® 9 and PCI Express®

All laptops I am looking at for my price range are Intel Core Duo 2.2ghz and 4 gig ram.

I was advised that the "NVIDIA GeForce Go 7150M" or the "ATI Radeon TM X1250 - 1599MB dynamically allocated dedicated and shared graphics memory" won't compare to the ones I listed above for where HD editing is concerned.

As you know, graphics card that work well for games don't necessarily work well for HD video editing... so, I am having a bit of trouble researching these cards, appreciate

I was leaning towards the ATI Mobility Radeon HD2600 as it was the one most recommended to me for HD editing, as is also higher on the scale in graphics card comparisons, with these specs:

This is a DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI and direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS graphic card for laptops.

Due to the Avivo HD videoengine the Chip accelerates HD Video like HD DVD, Blu-ray (Video Decoder for H.264/AVC, VC-1, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4/DivX Video Codecs). Furthermore PowerPlay 7.0 brings longer battery runtimes. Furthermore, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 is certified for Windows Vista (for the Aero user interface).

Technically, the chip owns 120 stream processors which are able to manage vertex-, geometric or pixelshader operations. Therefore DirectX 10.0 and Shader Model 4.0 are supported. To be mentioned is also the 256 bit wide ringbus.

I was told it is vital to have lots of dedicated memory for video editing.

The video gets stuck while editing


Try updating your video drivers. It sounds like the video driver is crashing and a fresh install of the driver might fix your issue. If you have an nvidia graphics card, you can get drivers from nvidia.com. If you don't have an nvidia graphics card, you can get drivers from ati.com.

Hi ,
You are probably facing a power supply issue , though this device isn't exceptionally gready in power consumption .
You will need to replace the PSU by a larger one . 450 Watts will do but don't hesitate to go for a 600 W since these units are fairly cheap .
Best regards

WHAT VIDEO CARDS ARE BEST IN VIDEO EDITING AND PICTURE EDITING..


Unless you are using the absolute latest versions of the program - in that case, since they can use hardware acceleration, the best cards are indeed the most powerfull ones - you should have no problem using practically every video card from the mainstream line of both ATI and NVIDIA. For better driver performance get a RADEON HD5770 with 1GB of DDR5 memory.
