    i7-6820 and i7-6700 processors on Zbook - problem?

    I'm looking at a new 17" Zbook G3 for Media Composer. I've been given the choice of either i7-6820 or i7-6700 processor options. Will any of these be a problem or are they both good for MC? I've searched the Avid recommended specs but I cant find anything on these. If anybody can point me in right direction it will be much appreciated.

    Both are quad cores but the 6700 is 4GHz the 6820 is only 2.7Ghz so both should work the 4GHz one a lot faster!

    What graphics subsystem do they come with. The new i7-6700 (and 6820?) have on-board Intel graphics adaptors but does the Zboot G3 come with an nVidia option?

    They do indeed come with Nvidia cards. I've been given the option of an M4000 card and a cheaper M3000. Quite a big difference in price between the two, so I was wondering if the M3000 will work even though its not specified by Avid
