My first laptop had Intel i7-8565U CPU with single core performance ~2000 points. It was okay, but browsing experience was very laggy and jittery. After few years I bought new notebook with Intel i9-13980HX - best mobile CPU at this moment with with single core performance ~4400 points. Browsing is smooth and cool. VMs starting for 6 seconds, instead of 12, but still, there is 2% frame drops watching 2k 60fps VP9 video from youtube, and CPU overclocking didnt help. So I think, current bottleneck is not CPU (if not cpu then what?)
Now I want to buy a laptop with Qubes OS for my friend as a present and I want him to have best possible experience with it.
The problem is: I think 13980HX is too much and 8565U too bad. So there should be some CPU with best performance and price.
If you use laptop and your fullhd browsing experience is perfectly smooth on heavy loaded web pages, and VMs are starting in range of 6-8 seconds, please share your laptop CPU and experience.
