  • Great laptop for Concept Artists
    Subin Rajendran on Amazon.in | 03-05-2019

    I bought this laptop to replace my MacBook Pro 2018 for my concept design work, and I can honestly say it more than lives up to the promise of performance from Asus. There was no throttling due to poor thermals like on the MBP, Zbrush works like a charm with no crashes zbrush would constantly crash on the MBP without warning, it aint nice losing your work when you are halfway through, good render times on cycles in blender when using either CPU or GPU, keyshot runs great without any hiccups and 2D packages like Photoshop CC and Sketchbook Pro runs great. Expect the fans to be loud when scenes are being rendered or using EEVEE in the active view port for Blender, but then again that's up to the workload, I would suggest using a pair of headphones when working on this laptop. As for the gaming performance I haven't done much gaming on this laptop, so far the very few games i have played on it runs great at the highest settings albeit at 1080 resolution. One thing to note is the windows 10 1809 redstone 5 update will cause the Asus Aura software that controls the rgb lighting to be wiped out, so those looking forward to playing around with the rgb lighting post update will be sorely disappointed. Oh yeah without the 1809 update you wont get the RTX cores to work on RTX enabled gamessoftwares DXR is available post 1809 update only. So in conclusion its a great portable workstation with great thermals if your work involves using 3D and 2D packages, I definitely recommend this laptop for concept artists.
