New Laptop specifications for great engine analysis??

Postby gb2284 » Fri Dec 11, 2015 3:00 pm

Hi guys,

I am going to buy a new laptop soon and I want to know what to look for in its specifications so that it can do some deep and FAST engine analysis.
For example, what CPU Ghz should I look for? More than 2GHZ?
Also I hear that number of cores matter a lot? 4 cores is fine or 8 cores are a must if you want it go fast?

What is a good number of kN/s? My old laptop reaches about 1400. Is that slow compared to today’s computer standards?

I would love to get some advice for people for know stuff about computers in relation to how chess engines work.
