Surface Laptop OK 15" OK for Cubase Pro 11?

Hello.
I plan to buy a Surface Laptop 3 :
8 Gb Ram, 256 Gb SSD, AMD Ryzen 3550U
15" screen, 2496 x 1664 => 200 DPI (vs 92 for a 24" full HD)
I’m wondering if Cubase Pro 11 will run fine on it ?

  1. Is 8 Gb Ram enough ?
  2. Is AMD Ryzen 3550U fast enough ?
  3. And main question :
    How is handled High DPI in Cubase 11 ?
    Is the scaling only 100 or 200% (as in C10) or is there now intermediate scalings available ?
    And how do VST instruments like Halion and so one handle that point ?

Thanks for advance.
Fred.

You may want to check Robin Vincent’s videos on using the Surface for music production (molten music)

Thanks, but my question is rather about Surface Laptop (15 inches). And these videos are sooooo long …

I’ll try to answer myself.

  1. RAM : See 2

  2. CPU : I have read the requirements, but I wonder if it’ll be enough with complex configurations : many tracks and/or VST instruments.

  3. Screen Resolution :
    Surface Laptop is set at 150% Scaling.
    Cubase Pro 11 should conform to this.
    VST instruments seems to be on a 100% or 200% basis, so, 150% should give a 200% scaling.
    But given the size of their windows, it should fit in the screen (which resolution is 2496 x 1664).
    Here’s the sizes and what I found in the manuals :

  • Grove Agent SE 5 : 1028 x 693 : 100% or 200% scaling
  • Halion Sonic SE 3 : 900 x 765 : 100% or 200% scaling
  • Loop Mash 2 : 990 x 723 : unknown
  • Mystic : 863 x 689 : unknow
  • PadShop 2 : 920 x 706 : 100% or 200% scaling
  • Prologue : 863 x 689 : unknnow
  • Retrologue 2 : 918 x 702 : unknown
  • Spector : 863 x 689 : unknown

Thanks … to me :slight_smile:
Still waiting for advices on questions 1 and 2 … and even 3.
Thanks … for advance :slight_smile:
