I run a company that designs autonomous drone infrastructure, and we pride ourselves on making very detailed 3D assets for engineering drawings (now mainly done in F360 ) and our in-house rendered stills and animations ( Rhino7 + VrayNext )
When I say detailed, I mean every bolt, washer, nut ect.
Currently I have a desktop with:
Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Eight-Core Processor (16 CPUs), ~3.7GHz
- Memory: 65536MB RAM*
- Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti*
- NVME drive for primary HDD*
Its fine… but old, and we need something new.
I also run a laptop with (and I know this thing is… not ideal)
Processor: Intel(R) Core™ i7-8750H CPU @ 2.20GHz (12 CPUs), ~2.2GHz
Memory: 16384MB RAM
Card name: Intel(R) UHD Graphics 630
I want to know both the laptop AND the desktop CPU + GPU combo that is the best in the business so I can stop worrying about if I will be able to move our primary assets around in a scene or not. Weight on the laptop is as always key for travel, but the idea is to still be able to move projects around and shoot them up to chaos cloud (never used it, super pumped) when on the go.
Attached is one of my renders. Vray render + rhino make2d line work composited in photoshop.
