I’m going to be doing quite a bit of travelling this year and would like to continue development on a couple of personal projects with Unreal 4.8… so since I’m not going to have access to my regular desktop machine I’m looking at getting a laptop.
I haven’t really been able to track down any benchmarks for the latest Nvidia m-series cards, so I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience working with either the 960M or the 970M.
The laptops I’m currently looking at are the Alienware 17 (with a 970), Acer Aspire Nitro (960M) and the Lenovo Y50-70 (960M).
The Alienware 17 is clearly the powerhouse here, but it’s significantly more expensive - especially here in Sweden. The Lenovo Y50-70 seems like it has the most bang for buck (16GB RAM and a 4GB 960M).
I guess what I’m really after here is whether the 960M is going to be powerful enough to run the Unreal 4.8 editor at a reasonable frame rate, or do I need to go for the Alienware?
Thanks in advance!
