Laptop Lenovo Legion: i7-9750, nVidia 1660 ti, 32 gb RAM, SSD. Op Brass Drum runs about 50:1 on fastest
Surface Book 2: i7-8750, nVidia 1050 mobile, 16 gb RAM, SSD. Op Brass Drum runs about 35:1 on fastest
I use Op Brass Drum as my personal benchmark. btw, CMNAO ran Op Brass Drum at 30:1 on the Lenovo.
To me, raw single core speed is the key. Multi-core helps, but that single core speed is the critical part. If you run TacView as the 3D window, the GPU is very important also. But without the 3D window, I have found only minor differences between nVidia and Intel GPUs.
Update with two newer latops:
Gigabyte Aorus - i9-10980HK, RTX 2080 Super MaxQ, 32 Gb RAM, M2 SSDs - Op Brass Drum ran about 53:1 over 10 run throughs
Surface Book 3 - i7-1065G, GTX 1650, 32Gb RAM, SSD - Op Brass Drum ran at 37:1 over 5 runs.
Just trying to keep the benchmarks going. Keep in mind these are all using the latest public beta. So game optimizations might have as much impact as upgraded hardware.
