    Anyone running HP z240 with built in gpu, and MC 2020/2021?

    ...and get it work?

    We have until now been running MC 2018 without problems with this setup, but now with MC 2020/2021, source video window freezes and you need to restart MC.

    update:

    hopefully I have found the problem here. Some of our z240's had the default value here, 128 mb. And I also found a neewer driver on Intels site. (version 30.00.....HP have 27.20 as latest driver)

    Happy to not have to buy 40 pcs of Nvida p600 :)

    From Avid configuration guide:

    Video Card (GPU)

    1. Embedded Intel HD Graphics P530 (The embedded Intel HD P530 graphics are supported for use with Media Composer. Dedicated memory for the HD P530 graphics must be set to 1GB via the system BIOS. If the memory for the Intel HD P530 is not set properly, the Media Composer s/w will not initialize. Refer to the BIOS settings section of this document.

    2. Optional - NVIDIA Quadro K620 or K1200 PCI-Express video board (not required)
