Hey everyone, first time posting on the forum, been using and loving 3dcoat for almost a year now. I have a few questions regarding laptops and 3dcoat.
I'm planning on getting a laptop specifically for 3dcoat and photoshop to use as a mobile workstation. I Need an alternative from when I am away from my home workstation, and specifically I am looking at the MSI G72 Apache.
i7 6700, nvidia 970m, 16 gb ram, etc.
At home i run a workstation i built about 2 years ago. It has a NTEL I5-4670K 3.4 GHZ processor, amd firepro v5900 workstation card, and 8gb ram. It runs 3dcoat great, and does everything i need it to. Though researching and comparing benchmarks on laptops point to the msi g72 running even better/faster than my workstation. I'm trepedatious believing that a laptop could ever out perform my pc, even though its a coupple years old.
So here are my question: what should i expect from a laptop with these specs handling 3dcoat?
Are these specs overkill? Or underkill? If so what would be better or more suited?
i lack the first hand experience with laptop hardware to really understand what to expect. I am hoping someone here might have a bit of experience!
(looking specifically at msi over other laptops of same caliber due to its cooling vs size)
thanks in advance, and i look forward to hearing anyones input.
