What rendering software supports ray tracing?

I am thinking about buying a laptop with raytracing capability (need laptop, can’t pc). I am wondering what rendering software supports that? Cause it seems like a waste if the software won’t be able to support it. I heard about twinmotion, but I am not quite sure.

Or maybe I should get cheaper ones, with1650Ti, and use other rendering softwares? If so, what do you reccomend?

hello,
twinmotion and enscape support ray tracing for real time rendering and it makes quite a big difference

Raytracing is a method that about all current rendering applications use. Basically it has nothing to do with computer hardware. Some applications like Enscape and Twinmotion use a “game engine” core that can do the rendering in realtime using the capabilities of modern graphics cards, with some compromises in quality compared to the non-realtime renderers. Check the hardware requirements of the application you want to use. For instance, V-Ray can use your graphics card to render faster but the magic works only with Nvidia-based cards.
1650 Ti should be OK for Enscape, Twinmotion or V-Ray with not overly complex models. For SketchUp, look for a laptop with a CPU with a good single core performance rating. As to graphics cards, the Quadro models offer no advantages over GeForce cards and just cost more. I would look for a laptop with a GeForce RTX card.
