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?

Nvidia cards will always have the better optimization.



Green Team. Always.



                                                                                                                                            

That's a hard question, CPU is AMD. Intel is pretty fucked until 2021.
GPU probably Nvidia, but that depends on what you want in terms of performance.



Specifically for modeling and rendering, NVIDIA. For starters, more engines are supported on it (such as Iray), and the cards are more efficient.

so what benefits does AMD offer if any? I've seen comments about better multitasking but I've never had issues alt tabbing from games and playing youtube, browsing etc etc etc simultaneously



High End Nvidia, midrange AMD.



PS4 Pro, Nintendo Switch, PC: i5-4670k, RX470.

Mainly efficiency (though, in fairness to AMD, price/value in the midrange is their strong suit).



                                                                                                                                            

sounds like I should stick to nvidia then lol, won't upgrade till the next gen at least though, RTX doesn't seem to be a massive leap

RTX can create a substantial leap when done right (as seen in Metro), but yeah as of now, there's not enough to really justify it.
