Hello, I am looking to purchase a new laptop. I am handling some light rendering in Rhino 7. Small architectural renderings such as custom bookshelves with some lighting and occasionally larger spaces such as Living Rooms with furniture etc.
I have purchased a Dell XPS 17 9700
- 2060 Max Q
- 32GB Ram
This laptop is crazy slow when I try to render even a small piece of millwork, like a dresser. Maybe it is the laptop that’s an issue and not the hardware? We are talking very slow to render 200 samples at draft quality 800 pixels. The laptop just seemed like it couldn’t handle this workload. Anyone have experience with this laptop?
My other options I am considering to buy are…
- XEON - W-10855M
- Quadro RTX 5000 Max Q
- 32GB RAM
Dell Precision 5750
- Quadro RTX 3000
- Did anyone notice the same issue with the performance of the XPS 17?
- The Dell precision seems to be the same style as the XPS 17 but with the quadro card. Will this precision behave just as poorly as the XPS?
- Which laptop would you choose above for slightly above average performance. Do you have any suggestions otherwise if none of these options fit the bill.
I greatly appreciate your advice.
