Hi (forgive my bad English), I have a HP Zbook i7, with a Nvidia Quadro K2100M. I use Blender (2.81) mainly to render clean mesh objects with some basic texture and hdri ligthing so I can have some reference for drawings and paintings. The last week I was working fine in Eeve and then redendering in Cycles (renders with low quantity of bounces and throwing to the GPU an "easy" render , optimizing here and there so I can have a quite noisy image but quickly and with enougth quality to work as reference and not as digital artwork). Today I added a few textures and now Blender is crashing while rendering. I dont know if it is doing to some bug or if indeed my graphic card is just not made for this, or if my laptop is having some actualization issues, I have tried to actualize or run old actualizations for a few hours, changing TDR values, but I am done XD.

Any advice?

  • $\begingroup$ Lets say I need a new hardware, which low-mid budget laptop would you recomend? I don´t work large or medium scenes on Blender (is usually just an object as clean in mesh as I can with some ligthing, lets say a realistic car but without hard details on tires, relfections, I dont bother to textuer or model details that are not going to being visable on a painting, neither run animations or hight resolution and photorealistic images). I have respect to the people who need or have fun with those features, I just dont need an ultraproffesional laptop for my needs I think $\endgroup$ – esteban hidalgo Dec 1 '19 at 8:13
  • $\begingroup$ what is the crash report? render with cpu. if it's working you might be out of vram for the rendering that scene. $\endgroup$ – Mobin Dec 1 '19 at 8:14
  • $\begingroup$ "A TDR has been detected. The Application must close."Code: 7 $\endgroup$ – esteban hidalgo Dec 1 '19 at 8:21
  • $\begingroup$ I will try to render with CPU, $\endgroup$ – esteban hidalgo Dec 1 '19 at 8:21
  • $\begingroup$ I would recommend cheapest laptop with more then 4gb vram but don't take my word for it. 4gb might work with you this year but some years later it might not because of updates or any other reason. Also try AMD Radeon ProRender. And yes it works with nvidia and intel. $\endgroup$ – Mobin Dec 1 '19 at 8:24
