Purpose: 3D Modeling & Animation Work (Gaming very less)
Country: India

Budget: INR 1.5 Lakh (USD 2k) little flexibility is possible
Screen Size: around 15"
Ram: atleast 16gb but 32gb preferred
GPU: RTX (atleast 6gb but 8gb preferred)

Any good brand will work. I am open minded for your suggestions and recommendations.

given my criteria any search engines will reveal what it is you are looking for. Why should I suggest something specific? so you can tell me it's not available in your country?

but anyway, try this , you will need to look around

The MSI since you're going to need the GPU as well as the CPU. The GPU on the Asus is lackluster compared to the MSI.
Thanks for the swift reply!
General question:
How Ryzen performs in comparison with Intel, considering my line of work and sofwares?
does it go along with all sofwares like Intel?

Thanks

Merged your thread because it's on the same vein.

As for your question two posts above, AMD and Intel are going to be on par with each other. To answer the latter post that was merged, the higher refresh rate won't help much with content creation but if you're thinking of gaming then yes you're right to be fixated with high refresh rates. In terms of power for your workloads, you're fine with either.

Thanks for quick reply!

and Sorry for sounding bit confused but the cost of these laptops are hoping and i just don't want to take any risk. So, here i have added 3rd option as well.

NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 8GB GDDR6
16GB, 8GBx2, DDR4, 3200MHz
1TB PCIe M.2 SSD
15.6" QHD (2560 x 1440) 240Hz 2ms with ComfortView Plus, NVIDIA G-SYNC and Advanced Optimus

2. MSI GE66 Core i7 11th Gen - (GE66 Raider 11UG-417IN)
(16 GB/1 TB SSD/Windows 10 Home/8 GB Graphics/
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070/165 Hz) Gaming Laptop
QHD Display (165Hz DCI-P3 100% Typical)

3. MSI GS75 Stealth Core i9 10th Gen - (GS75 Stealth 10SFS-871IN)
(32 GB/1 TB SSD/Windows 10 Home/
8 GB Graphics/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q/300 Hz)
Gaming Laptop (17.3 inch, Black, 2.4 kg)

Questions:
  1. RTX 2070 Super Max-Q 8GB vs RTX 3070 8GB which one is better?
  2. Which one is better in above all 3 Laptops?
Not for Gaming.
Specially for 3D content creations. (Model, Texture & Sculpting) and Some 2D contents (Photoshop & After Effects).
10-12 hrs of use per day almost

If anyone has tested these with some 3D applications and benchmarks then even better.
Please suggest!

Thanks
