First Laptops With 128GB RAM, 6-Core CPU And Quadro P3200 Announced

Good news if you are working in Architectural Viz or similar and the damn 3D scenes are often bigger than 64GB:

This amount of RAM by itself will cost 2000$.

And most 3D software costs 3K to 4.5K even though it should only cost 1K to 2K. Yet people still buy it. A lot of people buy 7K - 10K of 3D software or even more. All of it overpriced.

So what is so bad about spending 2K on RAM if you need it - to open and show an extra large 3D scene at a client's office for example?

This is for people who work on extra large 3D/CAD datasets that simply couldn't be opened on laptops at all in the past because the maximum RAM was 64GB of RAM.

In the past your only option was to move an entire desktop workstation to another location to show the large scenes. Or show pictures or videos of the project.

Now you can bring a laptop and open huge 3D scenes to show your client without a problem.

That's what these laptops are for.

Indeed great news for those who are in need of this. It's just the price is whopping over 5k for such a laptop. Laptops are not that reliable due to heating. But if one can afford it as a secondary machine, goodspeed.

And what about those laptop by MSI (gt83vr for instance), with dual 1080 and massive heatpipes? I saw one of them rendering on redshift for more 10 hours straight, with the gpu's staying at around 80-85 degrees all along.
Their cooling system seems to be quite reliable.

MSI laptops are very good. They are made for heavy-duty gaming, and some have very good screen panels as well.

I use a 1060 GPU based 4K UHD MSI laptop to code and test GPU algorithms.

I usually only run the GPU at 30% to 50% load on average though.

Don't know what would happen if you GPU rendered at 100% load for 72 hours or so.

Thank you for your answer.
I guess I'll find this kind of info on redshift forums for instance.
