I’m about to buy a new laptop from a custom vendor and have narrowed it down to 2 choices.
I know it’s an unfavourable time to upgrade, but It’s sort of an interim option as I’ll be getting a new 30xx desktop workstation next year.
i7 10875H 8 core with a 2070 super
3900x 12 core with a 2070(super not an option with this build)
Everything else is the same, so it boils down to the extra 15-20% perf from the 2070 super Vs the 100% gains from multi core on the 3900x(but at 2x the power consumption)
The programs I use:
Adobe Medium(mostly CPU)
I also still render in Arnold and Cycles/EEVEE.
The tools I use are a mix of CPU/GPU driven so it’s not really clearcut, as to benefits.
The 3900x machine is a bit more expensive, but that’s not a factor.
Any advice would be appreciated as I need to buy this machine asap. Cheers.
