I am looking to purchase a new Workstation Laptop and/or Gaming Laptop.
Thunderbolt 3 support is a must.
I would prefer two Thunderbolt 3 ports if possible so I could drive a pair of eGPu.
I need the Laptop to be capable of driving either Avermedia or Elgato external capture cards and record 4K60 FPS
I need a laptop with powerful CPU - hence Ryzen 7 is a thought.
The Laptop will need to have a reasonably powerful discrete graphics card with 6-8GB VRAM.
Something around RX580 8GB or RTX2060 8GB performance would do.
Edit: If AMD Discrete GPU I would prefer it to be RDNA based and not GCN.
I do not want to have to spend much more than 1500 for the Laptop if possible but I do not think that is likely.
I strongly prefer that the Laptop CPU does NOT have any Radeon Integrated Graphics.
If anyone has any ideas w.r.t. Laptop Options that might fit what I am after please let me know.
Best Laptop candidates I have seen so far are all Intel CPU based:
Newer HP Zbooks - Newer models have Dual Thunderbolt 3 which is great, but the graphics options are weak.
Latest HP Omen 15 and 17 have Thunderbolt 3, and some reasonable Discrete Graphics Cards.
However HP Laptops have a tendancy to use Hardware Whitelisting in BIOS which is a problem I would prefer to avoid.
I believe that new Laptop options for 2020 will be available from April 2nd.
