    DDR4 memory for Media Composer Zbook system

    I've posted elsewhere on a new 17" Zbook G3 that I want to buy. Another question regarding memory - I've been quoted on 64GB DDR4 and 32GB DDR4. I'm unsure about DDR4 as Avid currently only states DDR3 in their documentation. Will DDR4 modules be a problem?

    UPDATE: HP has informed me that DDR4 is for use on the new Zbook G3 series only. DDR3 is on the current G2 series only. Does anyone know whether the new ZBook G3 series is supported yet?

    The type of memory has no impact on compatability.

    64GB is complete overkill in combination with a quadcore CPU, 32 will suffice imho.

    make sure you choose a quadro gpu option and you'll be fine.

     

    worst case scenario: you might have to disable cpu's integraded graphics in bios.

    Thanks Ralph. Any word from them yet? This will be a pricey purchase if I decide to go ahead so it will be great if I can have the official word from Avid. I've followed up with my local reseller as well but they also need to refer to Avid USA for an answer.
