  1. So Id like to get a Laptop for Rhino, Revit, 3D design and rendering + occasional photo/video editing. Ideally under 2k. Buying in US. Considering Razer Blade 15 4k option with GTX 1070, or the newer 2019 model with RTX2080 but without 4k display. Hows rendering performance on RTX cards? Worth the 4k screen trade off? Alternatively the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 can come with a 32GB ram plus newer 9 Gen i7 but GTX 1650 Max-Q 4GB. Open to any other laptop/workstation laptop ideas. Quadro PC’s do seem a bit pricey.
  2. Hi, I want to build a machine for CAD, video editing and rendering programs such as- Autodesk Alias, Autodesk 3ds max Solidworks Rhino Keyshot Maxwell Octane Blender Maya Adobe After effects Adobe Photoshop Adobe Premier Pro Google Sketchup I am split between the Firepro w5000 and the GTX 770 for my GPU so would much appreciate any opinions as to which one i should get, or any suggestions for another GPU in the £300-£350 price range. This is the rest of my build- CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V3 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler Motherboard: ASRock H87M Pro4 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard Memory: Kingston XMP Blu Red Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" Solid State Disk Wireless Network Adapter: TP-Link TL-WN851ND 802.11b/g/n PCI Wi-Fi Adapter Case: Fractal Design Arc Mini R2 MicroATX Mini Tower Case Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer Operating System: Windows 8 Professional Student Any opinions on the build would also be much appreciated. Cheers
  3. Hi, I am planning to build a PC intended for use with Adobe Premier Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Autodesk Autocad, 3Ds max, Maya, Keyshot, Solidworks and the like. I'm not a professional but do video editing, animation and 3D design mostly as a hobby at the moment, but I am looking to study 3D design at university next year so will need a good computer to cope with the stresses of the various CAD softwares. The is the Build so far- CPU Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core CPU Cooler Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM Motherboard Asus Z87-PRO ATX LGA1150 Memory Patriot Viper 3 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Storage Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" SSD Case Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Power Supply Corsair 750W ATX12V / EPS12V Optical Drive Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) I am stuck on the GPU front, I have basically narrowed it down to the K2000 or a W5000 or a GTX 780 or a R9 290 but i am just unsure about which one would be the best for what i am wanting to do, could you give me any suggestions/advice on these cards? I am also thinking about going with x79 platform with the 4930k processor (if i can make my budget stretch that far!) how much do you think i would benefit from this over the z87 platform? Is it worth the extra money? Also if i could make my budget stretch to getting a K4000 which of the following options do you think would be the best 1. Get a K4000 but stick with the z87 platform or 2. Go a with the 4930k processor but get a GPU which isn't as good such as the ones above? Also any advice on any of the components in the build as it stands would be very much appreciated as well. Many Thanks
  4. Hi! I just want to know which graphic card in better for rendering with Vray (3ds max). Kind regards, David
  5. Hi, I'm new here and i read many threads about hardware, specially graphic cards but i'm still confused. I'm preparing to buy/build a new workstation dedicated to 3D design using 3ds Max. I work essentially on architectural projects (interior and exterior) and many of them has more than 15 millions of polygons. Actually for rendering i'm using a render farm composed of 3 computers i7 2600/8 GO RAM. So the workstation will be used essentially to design the scenes and not to render them. I want to work in comfort when manipulating the project into the viewport beacause actually using my actual machine it lags so much (i have an i7 960, 8 GO RAM, and an old ATI graphic card) For CPU, RAM, HDD and other hardware i don't have problem choosing them. But when it comes to grahpic card... I'm really blocked. Do i have to into gaming graphic cards or professional ones? ATI or NVIDIA? The total budget for workstation is up to 1500$ Thanks for your help.
  6. so my question is if any quadro gpu is better thatn the gforce family for vectorworks, autocd, maya, cs6, etc. I want to buy a mobile workstation and i want to know if the effort for bying a quadro is worth, because i think a ge force with enough own memory like 2 or 4 gb wil be enough, can u tell me if this is true?
