i7-7700HQ for unreal C++?
Hi all! I have bought a new laptop (omen X, i7-7700HQ base clock 2.8GHZ turbo to 3.8GHZ, GTX 1070 8GB DDR5 dedicated, 16 GB DDR4 RAM, 1TB HDD + 256 NVME M.2 SSD, 17.3 inch FHD 120HZ with nvidea G-sync 1080p display). I wanted to know whether my CPU (i7-7700HQ) will give me good compile times in unreal C++. (I am a beginner and following Ben Tristem's Udemy course of unreal C++)

It won't be bad but since it is a laptop with 8 threads it has its limits. Compiling the entire engine and all the programs probably would take between 1h 30m and 2h. Compiling just a small project would probable just take a dozen minutes for the first time around when it generates the pre-compiled headers. Small changes to your project should take seconds.
