U will need a dedicated GPU and I’d recommend at least 6GB GPU memory and 16 system memory, ewGB better

Thanks for your replay.
If I do not use 6GB GPU memory then it won't be start? Even i can't use DaVinci Resolve 16 in this system. or any other way to use this without using 6GB GPU memory?
Thanks

Regardless of the GPU memory size advise, you need a standalone GPU, look at a NVIDIA 2070 or better.
