Graphics Comparison for a Budget Laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello

 

So I'm a long time lurker that finally is upgrading to a new laptop for college, here it goes:

 

So I have two choices that are under my budget and seem good, both are exactly the same with R5 3550H, 8GB Ram, a 1TB HDD/SHDD, etc, with just GPU and screen differences. The first one has a rx 560x 4GB with a 60hz Freesync display (https://www.amazon.in/FX505DY-BQ002T-15-6-inch-5-3550H-Windows-Graphics/dp/B07MSK34LL/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=tuf&qid=1563867915&s=gateway&smid=A14CZOWI0VEHLG&sr=8-1) and the second has a 1050 3GB with a non-GSync 120hz display (https://www.amazon.in/FX505DD-Graphics-5-3550H-Windows-FX505DD-AL185T/dp/B07RQM12TR/ref=mp_s_a_1_7?keywords=tuf&qid=1563867915&s=gateway&smid=A14CZOWI0VEHLG&sr=8-7

 

Now I am planning to upgrade it with a m.2 ssd and another 8GB stick for dual channel right after buying, so that should give it a slight boost to maybe possibly pushing the 1050 to utilize the 120hz display. The normal use case would be using DaVinci Resolve/Premiere, MATLAB, and occasional gaming on the side. 

 

Which one do you all think would be better, a 560x with Freesync or a 1050 with 120hz but without GSync

 

Thanks in Advance

Oh, the one concern I've got with the 560x one is whether its drivers support linux or not

Buying in India

Yeah, there are not a lot of options in that range yet

Your budget is a bit low...

 

No preference on weight and battery life?
