New Computer for Rendering with Magic

Sat Apr 27, 2019 8:17 pm

Hello, fellows!

I realize that my question is rather abstract, however, maybe somebody can give me a suggestion.
I am intensively using Magic for making MP4 videos and rendering takes quite a time on my laptop, moreover the air going out of the vent is extremely hot, so I am afraid to burn my machine, as rendering can take around 4 hours or so...

Thus I consider building a desktop for faster workflow.
Rendering with Magic will be the main operation to consider.
Other processes are waaay less power demanding.

The laptop I have now:
NVidia GeForce GT640M 2GB

I am considering the following desktop:
NVidia GeForce RTX 2070 8GB

So, the silly question is, how much faster rendering speeds can I expect from such desktop comparing to my existing laptop?
I realize that any precise estimates are not possible, but maybe somebody can give an educated guess?

Thank you in advance!

Your new system will be much faster, but it’s impossible to say how much. It also depends heavily on the resolution you use.
