Hi there, I’m very new to TD.
I’m working with Max since… 15 years.
I’m trying to explore setups for a new laptop dedicated to visuals.
My i7 mac book will still get everything audio.
I read carefully https://docs.derivative.ca/System_Requirements and I concluded 2 things:
- I’ll get a Windows system
- I should get a computer with NVIDIA gpu
My purpose is both playing live and working in studio. I’d prefer a laptop, actually, except if I find a small form factor more powerful machine (that I’d remote control without screen/keyboard eventually)
My main needs are:
- lot of polygons and meshes
- particles systems (I know cuda based systems are very powerful)
- texture processing
- easy on 4K
I know I’ll need RAM, i7 or even i9, I read about Nvidia Quadro.
But I’m asking myself if I should do i9 and maybe not the most powerful Nvidia Quadro VS i7 and the most powerful Nvidia Quadro, things like that…
I know this kind of thread is eternally never ending, but I’d appreciate some references, or experiences or just ideas.
My budget is around 3k€.
Any ideas, references, would be very appreciated.
