I use the touchscreen part of my Blades all the time. The GTX1060's performance benchmarks are posted in the benchmark thread.

RTX add's real time ray tracing that no one has really developed yet (it's new, give it time).

I have the RTX2080 atm and since there has only been 2 driver releases, there are still some bugs. I'm getting about 30fps, so I'm hoping on a call with Nvidia later today to see if we can get a fix for this and have it rolled out in the next driver release. (We will see).

Depends on what you do...

Do you make your own content? What else will this laptop be for? Just Resolume?

Well, I’m running after effect and 3D lighting software like grandMA 3D and WYSIWYG..

Pretty much it..

AE is CPU based, If you're running Element, that will use some openGL.
MA3D is openGL and I'm not sure on WYSIWYG.

The RTX card won't have any benefits for these software anytime soon.
So I'd say go with whatever will bring you the most return ($) the quickest.
On the other hand, Do you want to resell the laptop in the future, or run it until it dies? If you're looking to resell, having the latest GPU will help you in the long run. Either option is a good choice for what you're wanting to do (imo).

Oh nice! Thanks for your advise!!

So, overall, if i understand, if I choose the RTX one, it’s gonna be all right to run resolume, AE, MA3D .. as The GTX one?.. but the RTX one have no benefic for these software right now..

They're both great for all of those applications. The RTX is going to have some performance improvements, but from what I've seen, it's not night and day improvements.

If you need real time ray-tracing then go for the RTX cards, but from what I'm aware of (correct me if i'm wrong), Resolume doesn't do real time ray tracing.
