Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
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.

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.
Definetly the ati one. 120 stream processors is really good and it has
