All my current laptops are Gen 3 i7;s with 16 or 32gb of DDR3 and PCI 3.x. I use them for high def and 4k video editing, larger 100mp medium format raw files. Of course we are using SSD's to help. We only use high end stuff like Eurocom, Sager, MSI, Cleveo, Orgin hardware. We are at the point where we want to upgrade, but these laptops the way we configure them start at $3500 each. We are not trolling the sales at Best Buy for for tablets with keyboards that they call laptops. When you invest that type of money in hardware, the question comes up. Upgrade now or with big changes around the corner, wait. So I am asking with PCI4 (which your motherboard limits everything) around the corner. Is it wise to just wait another 12-18 months are get twice the bandwidth per PCI channel and possible DDR5 ram in a laptop? Running 2 mobile 1080's or new 11 series mobile cards and 3 or 4 nvme drives with double the bandwidth per channel seems nice. It would clearly make a difference for 4k and 8k video work.
