What to look for in a laptop:

So what are the most important things to make sure of when you’re buying a laptop for streaming? Time was it was all about the CPU (processor), and don’t get us wrong that’s still an important part of it but thanks to Nvidia’s NVENC encrypting system the GPU can now carry the load so anything in the RTX 20 series is ideal but so long as the card supports NVENC it is a good choice. NVENC can also do two different encrypting settings at once for your recordings and streams so there are a bunch of advantages to going with an Nvidia card on your laptop.

Now when it comes to the CPU, even if you go with Intel or AMD the thing to look out for is the number of cores you are getting, honestly, it’s best not to stint on this as the more cores you have the easier it is for the laptop to encrypt everything. We would recommend a minimum of four cores, six is going to be the ideal place to be preferred. Anything more than that is great but as we say, once you’re at six Cores you’re going to have an easier time.

The next thing to look at is the IO, the ports that the laptop comes with. You’re going to want as many USB 3 ports as you can get when it comes to streaming as most of your components are going to hook up that way. Also, you want a good separation on both sides of the machine as there will be different hardware spaces for things like your camera, microphone interface, capture cards, etc. Also, be sure to buy something with a Thunderbolt 3 port, which is different from your USB-C port! The Thunderbolt 3 port enables you to attach enclosures for PCI-E cards, so you can get those 4 port capture cards that need PCI-E to work hooked up to your mobile production laptop.

Looking at the storage, the size of your main drive is not too much of a problem. Most laptops that meet the above requirement are going to come with a solid-state drive for the operating system and you mostly just use it for that. Your secondary storage, however, is more than likely where you’re going to store your recordings and personal stuff so in that respect the bigger is better. If you can get one with a 1TB you’re going to be in a good profit to not have to worry about a day worth of tournament not getting captured.


RAM is not as much of a problem but 16GB is compulsory to have. Anything lower than that you might start lacking in daily performance, if you’re looking to do more CPU-heavy tasks like video editing bumping up the RAM might not be a bad decision but for a streaming station, 16GB is a sweet spot.


The only outer thing to consider is the size and weight of the laptop. Now, this might seem sharp and dry, but thinner and lighter are better than thicker ones for taking this laptop places. Well, be careful with that, thinner laptops with the sorts of specs we have been discussing can mean you’re going to meet thermal problems in those thinner and lighter laptops. And as Yoda once sort of said, bad thermals lead to low-performance issues, performance issues lead to stream stutters, and stutters lead to “F”’s in the chat! It’s never a bad idea to get a laptop that has a bit more chunk to it and more fans.
