Hello. We are planning on replacing our aging vMix desktops with high end laptops.
Our requirements are:
6x NDI|HX camera inputs @ 1080p59.94
1x SRT input
1x SRT output
5x camera replay

We plan on ordering 2x laptops and sending full NDI replays from the replay laptop over to the primary vMix laptop via full bandwidth(~120mbps) NDI.
This is how our current desktop setup works via 10GBPS crossover Ethernet between the desktops. I do believe that a single shared 1GB network can handle all of this data as cameras will be switching from NDI to NDI|HX.

I am wondering if this model laptop would be good enough for our primary vMix switcher and our replay vMix switcher:
Ryzen 9 5900X
RTX 3080 16GB
1GB Ethernet

I have ready in the forum that some people say that the GPU handles NDI|HX inputs instead of the CPU like in NDI. Is this true for all NDI|HX inputs?
Our current issue with our older dekstops is that there are not enough CPU cores to handle NDI, and we have dropped frames and other weird issues.

Thanks in advance!
