NitroPC performance compared to X230 on Qubes

Hello, I’m a Qubes user on an standard X230 (i7 but not nitropad) and I’m quite happy with it except I would like to have better performance with regular apps (browser, thunderbird, libreoffice) and I’d love to have more ram to load more Qubes at once.

I’m seriously considering full optional NitroPC as a replacement but I wonder if I will notice a significant improvement. Well 64GB of ram vs 16GB is an obvious step forward, but beside that how’s the cpu performing?

Anyone who can share their experience?

Thank you


Considering i7s, NitroPC using all cores is doubling X230 in performance according to the site below:
