Hi, I was wondering about whether Mercury Playback Engine and other GPU functions would be supported by this card:
Intel Iris Graphics 6100
The card comes as part of a laptop with Intel Core i7-5557U CPU.
I know it's not officially listed in the supported GPU list, but the Iris Graphics 5100 is listed under "Windows OpenCL" support.
If it was to work with OpenCL support, would that still be a lot less performance than using a GeForce card with CUDA? I'm currently using a GeFOrce GT 630M.
Any advice much appreciated!
last i saw, there were problems with intel graphics and adobe's software. if that has changed, maybe someone will chime in and correct me.
i would suggest getting a more powerful cpu and graphics than the i7-5557U laptop you are looking at. a 4 core i7-47xxxx or i7-67xxxx with gtx 965m will be much faster. something with 16gb of memory and perhaps thunderbolt 3 and/or usb 3.1 gen 2 (10/gb). some will have ssd's, some not, you can also look into usb 3.1 samsung t1 or t3 ssd or add your own internally if the laptop supports upgrades. some of these laptops will start around $1k, to around $1.5k with more features.
Thanks for this info!
