I need a new laptop like weeks ago but want one for the long term. I could get a decent price on an HP Zbook G8 15", which typically includes one of the Nvidia Ampere GPUs. But I can only find reviews on the noisier and thirstier RTX A3000, A5000, not the A2000. Of course, from what's been claimed here is that JRVR

https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,132831.0.html and even madVR http://madvr.com/ can do DVD scaling quite well via the iGPU among several processors.


While at least among better scaling results are typically attained from HTPCs, has anyone else attempted DVD movie scaling via laptops? If yes, with what hardware and software? And what were the heat/noise experiences?


Any experiences or known reports using the RTX A2000 mobile graphics with these apps?
