Im looking to get a new laptop. I wanted to do some gaming on it also so i was considering one with a geforce gpu. But then another laptop i'm looking at has NVIDIA NVS4200M which apparently isnt good for gaming but from what i heard may be good for solidworks or rendering programs.
I don't know much about gpus, but i'm thinking since the geforce is able to play games, is it safe to say that it can operate solidworks smoothly? Or are the two cards (geforce vs nvs) two totally different animals?

The real use of the NVS4200M is to enable the use of an additional display. It is only slightly better than the integrated GPU that ships on the systems that use it.
