What to expect?

High end GPU - 6 GB graphics or higher

Ram - 16 GB or higher


Laptop below Rs 1,35,000


The softwares used, determines the specification requirement of the laptop. For Architects most applications except rendering softwares such as Lumion, TwinMotion etc are CPU Intensive applications, which means these applications won't benefit from a high end GPU and all or most of the tasks are handled by the CPU alone. However, this is not the case with applications like Lumion, Twinmotion and other GPU intensive applications. Lately, CPU based rendering plugin V-ray has also enabled GPU rendering support and applications like AutoCAD, Sketchup and Revit can also make use of GPU through GPU accelerated performance/hardware accelerated performance. So, a good GPU will help most applications and it is recommended to have one, especially if you're a designer or Architect who will be using GPU intensive applications.
