p3200?

I am returning my Vega 20 2019 MBP and getting a Thinkpad...I want to make sure I am at least getting the equivalent of a Vega 20.

Cheers and thank you.

I don't know about Quadro, because I think the Vega is a consumer based GPU, along the lines of the nvidia 10xx series of GPUs. My own limited research seems to peg the Vega 20 inbetween the GTX 1050Ti and GTX 1060. The 1060 being faster and the 1050ti varient being slightly slower.

I hope this helps
[doublepost=1560888523][/doublepost]Let me add that the market is quickly moving away from the GTX 10xx series and embracing the RTX 20xx series.

Im just wondering if I am doing more harm than good ditching the MBP for a Thinkpad P52 with a Quadro P1000.......

What are you looking to do? The Quadro are business/workstation class cards where as the GTX or RTX are more consumer based. I'll be the first to admit, I know very little about GPUs

It's roughly in between the P2000 and P3000:

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Radeon-Pro-Vega-20-vs-Quadro-P2000_9391_8886.247598.0.html

Of your list, the P3200 is a bit higher end:
https://www.notebookcheck.net/Radeon-Pro-Vega-20-vs-Quadro-P3200_9391_8764.247598.0.html

So if you want to make sure, get the P3200.

Needless to say, P1000 is lower-end than all of the above. It's kind of the equivalence of Vega 16.

Yes my friend got a HP with a P1000 and it was a bit disappointing.

However the OP should wait if they can. Look at this link :

Lenovo are updating to the new quadros. I would be buying these if GPU was an issue. P1000 is totally outdated now.

Last I checked the Vega 20 was deemed equivalent to between the GTX1050 and 1050Ti on notebookcheck.com. That ain't too great. It will be closer to a P2000 Quadro and far below the P3200, which is the best bang-for-buck Quadro.

Congratulations on the Thinkpad. I had the P51, which had some issues, so I hope they have been ironed out and that it is smooth sailing for you. I hope you don't mind me saying that the P53 release is imminent and is a complete redesign of the P52.

I would have kept the spec'd out 2019 MBP but everyone and there brother who is an engineer of any age says I will regret not just getting a windows.

The P52 I bought I don't think is as fast as my MBP, however will suite my needs better with CAD & running simulations.
