Best MacBook Pro for Dimensions

I am currently using a 2017 MacBook Pro with a 2.8GHZ Quad Core i7 and Raedon Pro 555 2GB and Intel HD Graphics 630 1536 MB. This has been a great machine for a lot of the 3D work I've done in Dimensions but I still find that at times it's not enough (and my computer sounds like it's either going to take off or freezes mid-render). Wondering if anyone has recommendations for a new MacBook Pro that might render more quickly or without those issues.

1st Dimension is finished

2nd Mac [any] is the wrong tool, you will spend $2000+ to have a good one and they still don't rendor half as well as a cheep Windows laptop {$500-900}

 

your Mac sounds like a helicopter trying to take off because its not using the Gpu at all and and the Cpu does everything... thats by design and Apple only adds a Gpu because people ask for it

 

the freezes mid rendor could be heat but its more likely just out of Ram... adding more Ram would help but of course that voids help

if you like your Mac thats great but if you want to get into 3D then Windows is where you need to be... its your money so good luck mate
