    I hadn't come across M.2 NVMe SSD drives before I ordered my new PC. I've included a 256GB Intel version on which the operating system will be installed. However, I was planning to put TANE on its own dedicated, standard SSD drive.

    You'll do just fine.

    UserBenchmarks: Game 13%, Desk 30%, Work 20%
    CPU: Intel Core i7-4500U - 31%
    GPU: Intel HD 4400 (Mobile 1.0/1.1 GHz) - 4.4%
    HDD: Toshiba MQ01ABD100 1TB - 51.2%
    RAM: Samsung M471B5173QH0-YK0 2x4GB - 48.5%
    MBD: Asus Q550LF

    This is by far the fastest laptop I've owned, but I've never been into serious gaming. I'm surprised by the low numbers. The benchmark program stated that I have too much running in the background.
    Seems to run TANE SP2 well enough.
    Trainz 2004, 2006, TC1, 2009 and T:ANE SP2 on ASUS laptop i7-4500U CPU, NVIDIA GeForce GT745M.

    Can't resist putting in my bit, as TANE and my new desktop are the best performance experience I've had with a long list of Trainz/HW combo's (lost count).

    UserBenchmarks: Game 94%, Desk 98%, Work 73%
    CPU: Intel Core i7-7700 - 95.3%
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 - 93.9%
    SSD: Nvme PC300 SK hy 256GB - 122.7%
    HDD: Toshiba DT01ACA200 2TB - 102.1%
    RAM: Micron 8ATF1G64AZ-2G3H1 2x8GB - 77.1%
    MBD: Dell XPS 8920

    Apparently the performance of my GTX 1070 is below expectations! It certainly exceeds anything I've had before.

    BTW: on the (not measured) gaming db noise level benchmark... whatever happened to the frantic fan noise of yester years. This thing runs so quiet. Maybe the conservatively configured 1070 has something to do with that ?

    I've upgraded a little since my last post here, so here's another look.

    UserBenchmarks: Game 61%, Desk 43%, Work 28%
    CPU: AMD FX-4300 - 42.2%
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 - 92.8%
    SSD: Crucial MX300 275GB - 36.2%
    HDD: Toshiba DT01ACA100 1TB - 93%
    RAM: Unknown 2x4GB - 38.8%
    MBD: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2

    I have some decent stuff in here, but the old CPU and MoBo are still bogging everything down. Also, my SSD was originally purchased to upgrade an old MacBook, but my plans changed suddenly, so I installed it in my desktop instead of sending it back. If I had the desktop in mind when I purchased the SSD, I would've gone Samsung.

    Gaming: 61% Destroyer
    Desktop: 43% Speed Boat
    Workstation: 28% Raft

    epa - Exactly right - the mobo and CPU are the major bottlenecks in the above User Benchmarks. Replacing these, plus adding 8Gb more RAM will give you a much faster T:ANE experience.
    The performance of your other components (like the GTX 1070 and SSD) are being held back by the CPU and DDR3.
    On current benchmarks, just about any of the new Intel 8th generation chips, or an AMD Ryzen CPU, coupled with 16Gb of DDR4 RAM, will boost your gaming experience markedly.
