Sizing a new machine dedicated to visuals
Sep 16 2020 | 5:48 pm
Hi there, I’m trying to explore setups for a new laptop dedicated to visuals. My i7 mac book will still get everything audio.
I'd like to get a Windows system also because I'd like to combine max and TD too. My purpose is both playing live and working in studio. I’d prefer a laptop, actually, except if I find a small form factor more powerful machine (that I’d remote control without screen/keyboard eventually)
My main needs are:
- lot of polygons and meshes
- big particles systems (I know cuda based systems are very powerful)
- textures processing
- easy on 4K
I know I’ll need RAM, i7 or even i9, I read about Nvidia Quadro. But I’m asking myself if I should do i9 and maybe not the most powerful Nvidia Quadro VS i7 and the most powerful Nvidia Quadro, things like that…
I know this kind of thread is eternally never ending, but I’d appreciate some references, or experiences or just ideas.
My budget is around 3k€.
Any ideas, references, would be very appreciated.
