I want ask AMD" Ryzen’ 5 2500U Processor, 2.0 GHz (2 M Cache, up to 3.6 GHz) and AMD Radeon’ Vega 8 Graphics , Ram 8 gb . Is it can running Rhino V7 ?
I’m building a new PC for a friend who is also a Rhino user. He doesn’t have a GPU so we’re going with a Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G (also Vega 7 iirc). I don’t see any issues with your APU but the low RAM (8GB) isn’t enough really, especially if you’re looking to have integrated and not discrete graphics. Install 16GB or higher modules if you can. I’m guessing it’s a laptop?
hey, i am about to buy a cheap laptop with simmilar specifications (tend to improve RAM tho), but I want to know if Radeon Vega 8 is capable of opening rhino and doing simple modeling, such as simple apartment and small ambients measurements with not to much detail.
My laptop has integrated + discrete graphics. I’m running it mostly on power saving so it’s using the integrated Vega 8 and it works great as long as I don’t run any renderings (not to be confused with render view).
The Radeon Vega 8 is an integrated GPU and would not be my first choice for a computer running Rhino.
Will it run at all? Yes, but the performance isn’t going to be particularly good.
These integrated GPUs are designed to reduce power consumption and extend the battery life of notebook computers. They do this at the expense of performance.
Rhino V7 needs excellent OpenGL support and high performance to run as intended.
I’d suggest a mobile workstation and a non-integrated NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU with as much VRAM as you can comfortably afford. You should have at least 4 GB VRAM for each standard resolution monitor you want to run.
A few months ago, I bought a Dell Alienware X14 outfitted with 16GB system RAM, a 1 TB SSD, and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050Ti with 4GB VRAM for $2000. It runs very will. The battery life is pretty marginal but it has really good performance.
hey man, thanks for such a nice response! Would you be able to recommend me the lowest (GPU system to perform “ok” (not to laggy, but it could be sharp).
I gave you the “guard rails” of the question.
Between them, it’s up to you to make a choice.
Perhaps others here with more experience with various hardware configurations can offer better suggestions, but ultimately, the choice is yours, and you take the risk.
