I have to replace my laptop and I have been searching online where I see many NVDIA GTX video cards with various numbers. 2020 Technology says it should be a dedicated card and gives the number 1050 or 1080. How do I know if a card is dedicated when I look at specs and are these the only two numbers that will work correctly? I don’t want to make a costly mistake. It seems I have to go with a gaming laptop to get the video card.
All NVDIA cards are dedicated video cards. The model number doesn't much matter for 2020. The MB/GB doesn't matter much. As long as it's DirectX compatible (and I believe all NVDIA cards are). A gaming system is ideal!
I appreciate this clarification very much!
I'll add the probably unnecessary comment to avoid AMD graphics systems - I have one in my Toshiba and it definitely causes more issues than the NVidia cards.
