  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! This semester I´ll be working on my master-thesis, and would like a powerful laptop that is versatile, and can handle demanding tasks. Would like it to be able to run vray, 3ds max, f storm, archicad, rhino, adobe ps,id,ill. I´m considering this one with the following specs: MSI P65 CREATOR 9SF-470NE: (https://www.msi.com/Prestige/P65-Creator-9SX/Specification) Intel Core i9 (9. gen) 9880H / 2.3 GHz 32GB RAM / (max 64GB RAM) 1TB SSD 15,6¨ 3840 x 2160 (Ultra HD 4K) NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q Is this a good option? Really appreciate all answers, - Erik
  3. Hi All, This is a request for one more build for RHINO + VRAY workstation and I would love to hear the feedback. Its envisioned as a mid range tower CPU - AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ 2950X or AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ 1950X OR would you suggest INTEL? Anything higher than this would sky rocket the price. GPU GTX 1080 TI or Quadro P2000. Or anything particular ? Rest I think would add up accordingly. Since I feel in this forum, most of the people are use to working with VRAY and RHINO, I would be really helpful to hear the feedback. And if there's any portable workstation that you think would fit, give me a heads up.
  4. Hi All, Can I use gaming laptop such as ASUS ROG or Lenovo legion y520 for architectural visualization, 3ds max, vray rendering and photoshop etc. Both laptop has same config which is i7 7th gen, 16 Gb ddr4 ram, Nvidia GTX 1050ti GPU, 1tb HDD. Thanks for your time and consideration.
  5. Hi Experts, I'm professional 3d architectural visualization artist and works in 3Ds Max, Vray and little bit in after effects. I need your suggestion to buy a laptop because I'm new to laptops. I'm looking for a laptop to replace my desktop and after lot of research and skylake waiting, finally Lenovo has launched skylake gaming laptop Y700 17ISK. I'm not sure if it's good enough for my uses. Though it's a gaming laptop, I'll be using it only for above mentioned softwares and no gaming. Can you guys guide me on my decision please ? Also, how much would you rate this laptop against Y510p ? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance !!!
  6. Hello again, I am helping my cousin find a good laptop for rendering (casual renders only) and would like to again ask help and have opinions from you. It will be used for 3dsmax and vray and photoshop. His budget range is $1000-$1200. Both of us are still amateurs in architectural visualizations and are not that techy and still has a lot to learn with regards to hardware stuffs, in this case, a laptop. I've used what I've learned in my last post http://forums.cgarchitect.com/74701-help-me-build-rig-1200-budget.html and recommended him these two laptops: ASUS N56VB ASUS N56VB-S4013H | 15.6IN. (1920X1080), I7 3630QM, 8GB, 1TB, GT740 2GB, (BLURAY) MSI GE60 0NC-I7387+ MSI GE60 0NC-I7387+ | *15.6-IN. HD (1366X768) LED NON-GLARE, I7-3630 2.3GHZ, 08GB, 500GB, GT650M 2GB GDDR5, DVDRW We were more inclined going with asus because I've read some articles that msi has heating issues and I thought that it would be bad for rendering but what are your opinions about this? MSI seems to be a great deal because its cheaper but because of the heating issues we're having second thoughts about this. I was wondering if there are any haswell laptops within the same price range that beats the two. But is it good to have a haswell laptop? Basing from what I've learned from my past post, haswell runs much hotter than its predecessor and heat is bad for a laptop right? Your comments and suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks.
  7. I would obviously prefer a large screen, (17") and the best vid card I can get. I currently have max 2014 and it won't work on xp. Time to upgrade anyway. Now using a Dell precision M90. My second Dell and I haven't been happy with it at all.
  8. Hi there i need some advice, close to a deadline:) My 2011 Macbook pro died and i need to decide whether upgrade it adding 16 GB memory and a new SSD, plus all the hassle, or invest (a lot ) of money in the new MPB retina display. Because i lost the original dvd install dvds, and other issues, it's becoming a nightmare to recover it quickly as i need. i currently work on a PC with 16GB and fast i7 3930K processor, but i always use a Mac for post production, photoshop and other tasks. i would like to be able to run 3dsmax on bootcamp and win7 and have some mobility. I've heard some big complaints about heat issues and not optimal display performance on windows 7 , since most applications doesn't support retina yet, so i'm not sure about risking the big $$$ if the product is not yet mature on that side. any experiences? thanks so much. Sergio
  9. Hi all!!!! I want to buy a laptop to work in 3ds Max 2012 (I know a Desktop always is better and I have a good one). I want it mostly for drawing 'cause for rendering I can use my desktop. The question is that in a range of prices below 2.500$ (preferably below 2.000$) I found these laptops: I appreciate any constructive comment or suggestion for other laptops. Thanks!!!!!

  11. Hi, I want a laptop that edit and render large files(in 3dsMAX,Rhinoceros, AutoCAD). I dont want buy 5000$ nvidia quadro laptops because gtx and firepro series have same gear also cheap. What should i buy? Thanks anyway
  12. 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?
  13.

  14. Hi, I'm seeking a laptop to get me through some small scale architectural design jobs over the next few months, primary uses will be: AutoCAD Photoshop Rhino 3ds Max (mid range 3D rendering in vray) Standard office/accessories etc I'm on a budget and have a temporary office so this is a stopgap until I move and can have a serious home desktop. I have roughly 800.00 GBP, I know I can't get anything great for that price so I just need something relatively good. Any help/advice would be much appreciated, it seemed in that price range that Samsung offered decent spec in their RC and RF range, but then I see a lot of more serious people using Asus/MSI etc. Thanks for your time!
  15. Hi. I am an architecture student (I just started last year) and I'm looking for a laptop that can handle autocad, 3ds max, photoshop and other programs such as revit maybe. I'm going to use it for gaming too and that's exactly where my headaches begin. I've found THIS laptop to be the best value for games (design complaint aside), but I'm still not really sure how will it perform in the programs I've mentioned above. What do you think? will the the ATI mobility radeon hd 5870 gpu be good for that? I've read CAD users and gamers are a completely different market when it comes to GPUs and that seems to be the general consensus, but then THIS thread made me doubt. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Things to consider: -Yes, it has to be a laptop. I spend most of my time at the university. -You can recommend me a laptop too, if you want. - Ugh I hate when people say this, but... sorry for the bad english. I'm not a native english speaker.
  16. I'm going to be doing a traveling architecture studio this summer so I unfortunately have to trade in to get a laptop to do the job. I would like to have a mac to normal word processing + email, and run bootcamp to do Rhino, Maxwell, 3dsMax, Autocad. . . I worried about the GeForce GT graphics card. I have a quatro FX 580 in my workstation and runs really nice for me. I would like a lighter machine but I'd but more marks on 3d modeling performance. Right now I'm in between this two: Macbook Pro 15" i7 2.6 8 GB ram GeForce GT 330 500GB HD @ 7200rpm high res screen $2500 (before tax) or Lenovo ThinkPad W510 i7-820QM NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M 8 GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz SODIMM Memory 500GB HD @ 7200rpm $2300 (before tax) What do you think? Thanks.
