Hardware question for grasshopper

Hello guys

I’m thinking on buying a new PC and i’m concerned about the number of cores, multi threading and the and the actual benefit that grasshopper gets from them. How many cores or threads Grasshopper really use? Is there an impact from the video card.
Would you buy a mobile workstation? To me, mobility is a need, but i would sacrifice it for performance if there is no other option.

Any advice? Any suggestion?

Thank you. :slight_smile:

Ps: Soon maybe updating to R7, but for now, I’m using R5.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I think that for GH is more important the RAM than the cores. But it depends on your modelling needs, if you want to draw a lot of geometry and process data in parallel, you must find the better GPU for your budget, but if you want to create huge definitions, you always will need more RAM. Not sure at all about this though :upside_down_face::+1:t3:

In general, Grasshopper uses a single thread (the UI thread). A few individual components are multi threaded. If you do scripting you can spread out workload in parallel (which I often do when processing meshes).
