Experience with nVidia GeForce MX130 2GB DDR5 in connection with Camtasia?

I am currently in the process of ordering a new notebook through our IT department. I have read in the community forums, that there have been problems with certain graphics cards, especially nVidia Geforce cards.

The relevant specs of the notebook I am about to order are as follows:

Graphics card: nVidia GeForce MX130 2GB DDR5
Memory: 16GB 1 x 16384MB DDR4 SO-DIMM
CPU: Core i7-8850H with 6 x 2,6GHz, max. Turbo 4,3GHz
OS: Windows 10
Hard drive: SSD 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe Class 40

Has anyone used this graphics card with Camtasia and can tell me, if there have been any problems/ compatibility issues?

Unfortunately I cannot go about and order any notebook. We have set configurations we can choose from and the only other one with a better graphics card is about twice a expensive and I would have to explain to my supervisor why the Geforce MX130 wouldn't be enough (since Camtasia does not list any specific requirements for a graphics card and only says it should be a discrete one).

Thank you very much!

I doubt you'll have any problems.  Laptop graphics cards are not the fastest on the planet but that goes with the "mobile" territory.  I've loaded Camtasia on and Intel 3230 chip (6+years old) and  it did fine.
