I want some experts to answer the question, (Not someone who always thinks high end pc is essential for all 3d related works),
Planning to buy new DELL XPS 13inch laptop with configuration
8th gen Intel core i5-8200Y processor
8gb DDR3 RAM
INTEL UHD GRAPHICS 620
Will it help to run sketch up with modelling or it just supports only autocad works ???
Test it yourself before buying. People have reported endless SketchUp problems with integrated Intel graphics. That is why they are listed as “not recommended” in the specifications page. ANY Nvidia-based solution is better. I don’t know if all notebooks with Nvidia graphics are considered “high-end” - at least my old Asus ultrabook with GT620M is not.
Just modeling is enough for me … gpu’s are for rendering purposes right ?.. I hope my configuration looks good for my purpose…just need some justification to confirm it…
And as you told…how i could test it myself…?
Is it possible to walk-around to get a laptop with my specifications and install softwares and do some work!!!
Thats why i told …experts needed to comment on my doubt…
the Y series CPU is passive cooled (TDP 4,5 W) and therefore not very fast but should work for small models. The integrated intel HD series is slow and the OpenGL support of the video driver known error prone, e.g. crashes resp. no display or lagging in connection w/ the select tool of SketchUp under recent Windows 10 builds.
If you are not tied to a convertible and can live w/ a FullHD display resolution check e.g. the HP Envy or Asus Zenbook series w/ a dedicated GeForce MX 150 for roughly the same pricing. If you plan to use outdoor go for a matte display anyhow.
You had better not take the Intel claims on face value. OpenGL support they list might refer only to those OpenGL features used by games. As said before, regardless of what the Intel site says, people have had many problems with them.
