Macbook Pro - which graphic card is better?


#1

Hi
Simple question for Mac users:
Macbook Pro 15" i7 2,8 with
AMD Radeon R9 M370X with 2 GB of dedicated GDDR5 SDRAM

or the same Mac only different card:
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M with 2 GB of dedicated GDDR5 SDRAM

Thanks!!!

This is my set-up , runs fine for my needs, small to medium size Rhino files, and some Keyshot render work :slight_smile:

I specifically sought out a refurbed 2014 MacBook Pro with the nvidia card when I needed a new laptop this time round - generally better for many this this kind of work. If only my iMac didn’t have AMD graphics!

Go with nvidia!

Thanks everyone! I will go for Nvidia :slight_smile:

I have an iMac with nVidia, and a late 2015 MBP with the AMD card. I have no problem using the machine with C4D, ARCHICAD, and Rhino. Of course I’m not doing GPU rendering, but none of these cards are sufficient for that. The difference in the machines is the SSD speed, and that one is noticable - favouring the AMD machine.

I forget to add that I am going to do simple indoor rendering, kitchens/bathrooms etc. Not animations.

maybe the long time driver support for the amd ship should be better because Apple uses in the last macs AMD chips. But on the otherside now there is a TB3 support for external GPU like Nvidia Pascal with drivers hmmmmm difficult decision.
My MBP runs a AMD Chip and I have no problems while using Rhino.
