Use a Thunder2 with a GTX 970 or upgrade my Mac to the 15" with the AMD Radeon R9 M370X?

Recommended Posts

Ok so I do I lot of work on Rhino 3D, Sketchup and too Revit. I also use Maxwell and sometimes VRay for rendering. My current  15" Macbook pro with Iris pro graphics really sucks for this. When I move models around they get laggy and often freeze and crash. I do expect rendering to always take a while. Should I go with the Thunder2 and a GTX 970 with a PSU or would I be fine with the built in AMD R9 m370X of the higher priced macbook. The GTX kills it on benchmarks however the GTX requires a PSU and its hard to take around.... 

 

Thanks!

A small GTX970 that fits into the AKiTiO and the Dell DA-2 are pretty mobile!

If your software can select the GPUs for rendering in the menu like Octane Render, it should work!
