I within the last three years or so pretty much made the transition completely over to pc gaming from consoles and was very impressed that a midrange laptop could easily beat my old ps4 in terms of performance. I got a pretty good desktop about a year and a half back with a 1080 and an i7. I choose the 1080 because I do various work in cad drawing and 3d modelling/rendering and my research lead me to believe that nvidia cards were more suitable as a result and also for games.
What do you guys think though? Is the conclusion that nvidia is better for cad, modelling, rendering and games true or was my research insufficient?
be aware when you talk about a cpu and refer to it as nothing more than an i7 you could be talking about a range of chips from the highest ends just under the newest i9s at costs of hundreds such as a https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail?id=scpuinti76900k&categoryName=processors-intel&superCatName=computing&title=intel-core-i7-6900k-%283.2ghz%29-lga2011 all the way down to utter pieces of shit which cost a fiver lol https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail?id=scpuinti79201a&categoryName=processors-intel&superCatName=computing&title=intel-core-i7-920-%282.66ghz%29-lga1366
Range of comparison when someone says "I have an i7"
Could literally fall anywhere on the spectrum from top end to bin liner.
Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
