Hey there everyone!
I am itching to get my hands on a 2021 M1 iPad Pro 12,9" 8GB version.
My question is, will I be handycapped by the RAM, or I can do honest highpoly sculpting with that 8GB?
Can somone provide me poly numbers, where the performance is still fluid?
No RAM handicaps with the 8GB, Nomad can access 6.2GB of that - it’s pretty much the top tier - only surpassed by the 16GB version (12.2 for Nomad). I pretty much specialise in high poly sculpts, no complaints or problems from my end. It’s a work horse. About 18M poly’s I’d say is the dead limit it can handle - but thats pushing incredibly( around 30M for the 16GB version. ) - with no lights, texturing or anything else - as a rule of thumb I try not to surpass 14M - problems will arise. Over-all, 14M is more than enough for pretty much anyone using tablets to 3D sculpt on. Generally you can get a good 3M poly’s to the GB, more if you’re conservative and refresh your memory regularly.
Thank you so much! I’ll push the order button tomorrow then
