    PC Hardware Recommendation

    Hi,

    I'm looking for PC hardware recommendations to run Unreal Engine smoothly for architectural visualisation purposes. I'll probably purchase the PC at pcspecialist.co.uk

    Not decided between a desktop or laptop. Have a budget of £2000. Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    It will depends what you would like to do.

    Here are some pointers:
    - Here you will find information on the minimum version and average pc conf used at Epic https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/...ons/index.html
    - Laptop is good if you are working outside of office, want to show live visualisation or HMD VR on the road. Make sure you have the good video output for the targeted VR headset
    - The performance will depend if you are planning to only run packaged applications or using the Editor with it. You will want to make sure you have enough HardDrive space, RAM and CPU power if it is a working PC - where you will do data preparation, shader compilation, use your Architecture softwares, etc. - than just a demonstration pc where you will only run packaged applications.
    - In any case a recent, good quality gaming GPU would do.
    - If you are interested in ray-tracing you might want to look at GPU that has those features (e.g. Nvidia RTX card). I was aware of few issues a couple months ago UE4 + RTX + laptops. They should be fixed by now but I did not test it enough myself to make a clear recommendation on Raytracing laptops. Also RTX laptop will most likely take you outside of the 2000 budget.

    My current configs are:
    - a 2 year old laptop: i7-7700, 32 GB ram, GTX 1070 and TB HD
    - a recent desktop: 3.4GHz Xeon, 96GB ram, RTX 2080 and TB HD

      I d add to that that a SSD drive is proven to be really effective to load many small assets (meshes, maps, materials) really quickly. Definitively a must have for real time.

        yes i agree. having SSD makes drastically improvement on loading levels.
