Been waiting for surfacebook i7 to come out in Japan, but it might be a while and probably not coming in for a while.
While the wait, the previous surface book prices are falling and considering that now. Probably i7 with dGPU,512GB.
It seems it has similar gpu as GeForce 940M.
something in the range of 300+ cuda cores and 1GB memory.
Now going back to the topic title, has anyone tried using Blender cycles with that level machine and will the real time render be usable? Will it still be faster than using i7CPU compute?
When I mean usable, when rotating things aroune for example, I’m hoping the each detail update of the render takes maybe within 5to10sec or so. Nothing too blocky for too long.
