    Greetings folks,

    I need a replacement for my laptop primarily for my work, as a medical illustrator. I work with very large Photoshop files (easily reach over +1,5 GB with +50 layers) and usually have +50 tabs open at any given time.

    There is a specific retailer where I have to redeem my credits, and I’d love to take your opinions as far as CPU performance is concerned. I am in between these three choices:

    Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 — €2,799 — Ryzen 9 7945HX

    MSI Raider GE78 — €3,071 — i9 14900HX

    MSI Vector GP78 — €3,399 — i9 13950HX

    However, the build quality of Asus is mid whilst the MSIs have high-end build quality.

    Now, to my understanding and of all the research I've done, PS mostly utilises processors with fewer cores but higher processor frequency. Such a case with Rhyzen having a higher base clock speed (2.5 GHz vs1.6 GHz vs 2.2 GHz) than its Intel competitors. Apart from that, Rhyzen beats Intel on most multi-core tests, however, it stays behind on single cores. And as far as I know, PS favours running on mostly single-core.

    I appreciate comments helping me choose a cost-efficient option that serves my needs as future-proof.

    Thank you for your attention.
