I have a half decent laptop which gets stuff done, but I've recently got into a redshift course and I assume my 1050 2gb is soon going to be useless once i get to do renders. I can't afford a full rig for the time being, but I can get a decent gpu and i want to connect it externally. But i'm unsure about one thing, is my weak laptop going to affect the render itself? I have read the scenes you want to render are loaded into the gpu, and then the scene gets rendered in there without the pc performances having any impact on it. Is this correct?
Also, do you think it's a feasible option?
PS: I have been googling in different ways to get an answer but i can't seem to hit the correct keywords so far
