HI, I'm buying a new laptop and looking at the Dell xps 15.  I work mostly on small domestic landscape projects but I am getting into 3d work more and more.


I've read the other threads but couldn't find any information on the whether either of the following cards would be sufficient for VW 2019.


NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050


Many thanks in advance,

How much memory does each card have? Both would work ok but I would be inclined to go for the newer GTX 1650 as that one should be faster for rendering etc. than the GTX 1050 and will last you a bit longer, this assuming they have the same amount of VRAM.


On the other hand, if the GTX 1650 comes with 2GB VRAM and the GTX 1050 with 4 GB VRAM then I would be inclined to go for the GTX 1050, especially if you want to use a 2nd monitor attached to your laptop.

If you can chose the amount of memory for each card, e.g. 2 or 4 GB of memory then go for at least 4 GB of GPU memory (VRAM).

Thanks for the help, the GTX 1650 has 4GB so sounds the better option.


I'm only intending to use the laptop when travelling or occasional use when not in the office.
