Enscape on a laptop- Impossible ?

  • I dont know the price differences, but you might consider the Geforce RTX line (2070 or 2080 Max-Q) instead of the Quadro RTX line (3000). You may get more bang for your buck at the price range you're considering. Moving forward, RTX should be a minimum requirement as more and more applications are adopting the technology.

    I agree with medmonds - the non Quadro RTX cards should give you a better price to performance ratio, especially when using Enscape mostly only of course - if you plan to do Quadro related workloads, you may want to go for that model instead.

  • To show you don't need amazing hardware to use it; I'm here with a 2012 vintage ThinkPad T530 with NVS 5400 graphics.

    Revit with Enscape "runs". Good enough to preview before rendering, but don't be in a hurry.

    New RTX equipped laptop is on the way though and I can't wait to see the difference in performance.

    Not bad! Glad to hear you're getting an awesome upgrade though. :)

  • I am also looking for a new laptop to work with Enscape. The Asus ProArt series looks like a good alternative, and this one seems to meet all the requirements:


    - Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro 17 - 17"

    - Intel Core i7 9750H / 2.6 GHz (4.5 GHz) / 12 MB

    - 32 GB DDR4

    - NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000

    - 1TB SSD

    Any thoughts?
    Thank you!

    It would definitely meet our requirements. We usually recommend GeForce GPU's instead of Quadro models (better price/performance ratio for the normal user), but if this is your only choice and you have the budget to spare then the machine will still be a great selection for Enscape.

  • I would upgrade to a RTX 4000 GPU. Our office has two MCI laptops with similar specs to the Asus and the machine with the RTX 4000 runs Enscape much better.
