The most dominant portable GPU is Nvidia's RTX 2080, yet you can get great casing rates from more seasoned models, for example, the GTX 1050. On the off chance that you need to do VR, don't make due with not exactly GTX 1060. Get a PC with at any rate an Intel Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM for gaming and performing multiple tasks execution.

you can consider MSI GV62 8RD-034, it is a gaming rig with the latest Intel Core i7-8750H processor and 8GB RAM. Also for graphics it has GeForce GTX 1050Ti. It will last for 2 years to come without an upgardes as you already have the latest processor and great garphics.
