i7 8550u with AMD Radeon 530 or i7 7500u with Nvidia 940 MX


Feb 4, 2018
I'm looking to buy a laptop, but I cannot decide between the above two options. I have always preferred Nvidia over AMD, but currently I have laptops with i7 8th gen, bundled with AMD, and i7 7th gen bundled with Nvidia.

Should I still prefer Nvidia over AMD ? Or Intel's 8th gen over 7th ?

I need to use the laptop for Android development, occassional video encoding, running virtual machines and sometimes for gaming.
Run PassMark on both, pick the one with the best score. For what you want, outside of the gaming part, they should be pretty much equal.
