Graphics or Memory

Recommended Posts

So what's more important Graphics or memory?.. or even processor!


say i have;


Laptop 1;

i9, RTX2060, 32Gb Ram


Laptop 2

i7, RTX2080, 16GB Ram


which would be the better one?


clearly it's also a business machine, so I'd probably have VW and about 20 chrome tabs, Excel, outlook all running at the same time!

@Matster i think both those will run most CAD softwares fine, but the 20 Chrome tabs will suck the life out of any machine 🤣

Graphics card will help with general screen refresh and drawing, and any Open GL renders you do.  Other forms or renderings, and dealing w/ large complex files will benefit from the processor and RAM.
