    looking for minimum specs for test computer


    I am considering a future purchase. It will be a laptop (no notebooks) used as a "crash dummy" for testing purposes. The initial tests will involve tweaking for the quickest stable boot times. I want to be comfortable with making further changes to (already quick) existing computers. My current lap tops are:
    • Lenovo B570, Windows 7 Home, 5400RPM HDD. Intel Core i3-2300 2.3GHz, boot time 15 seconds or better
    • Dell Inspiron 15 5000, Windows 10 Home, SSD, AMD Ryzen 5 2500U 2.0 GHz (turbo to 3.6GHz), boot time 12 seconds or better
    • Dell Inspiron 17 5000, Windows 10 Pro, SSD, Intel Core i7 8550U @ 1.80GHz (turbo to 4.0GHz), boot time less than 10 seconds
    What minimum specs would support tests relevant to these computers? The end goal is to be as budget friendly as possible.

    (You may be asking why right now. I used to hot rod cars. Now I like to hot rod computers.)

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    regards,

    :)

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds
