Hello,

I'm planning on buying a new laptop. I will use it for graphical work (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, ...) and 3D modelling in Rhino and rendering in bunkspeed. I'm not a gamer, so the notebook won't be used for that.

The two laptops I have in mind (Asus) differ from the graphics card. One has the Nvidia GT 635M , the other the Nvidia GT 650M.
I know that the 635M uses Fermi architecture and the 650M uses Kepler. But to be honest I don't know a lot about hardware so I don't have a clue what this means for the performance of the cards...

Will the difference between both cards be noticeable, or will the 635M do the job?

thank you very much,

artem

Refer to this thread. Oscar wanted a laptop too.

Thanks a lot Artem,

It seems like Oscar went for a GPU update for his desktop instead of getting a new laptop.
I need a laptop though... since I work a lot on location

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like fermi architecture is better, although older?
