    What are the most important hardware components needed for speedy Windows 10/11 imaging? It takes too long to update and rebase images on typical Intel i7 + 16GB of RAM + NVMe systems.

    Since the DISM integration process is single threaded, a high IPC CPU(Zen 3, AlderLake) with big cache is faster. Only the mount/dismount/export is I/O bound and can use up to 16 threads (12 Core i9 under utilized). My HP Elitebook 845 G8 with an 5850U and a 1TB 970EVO Plus is a about as fast as my X299 Desktop with i9-10920X and an 480GB Optane 900P

    yea you are correct that "DISM process is always using single thread of CPU Core" why dont M$ allow dism process to use multi threads of CPU so as to save time & boost dism performance.

    Intel Xeon Scalable CPU's omg are like superrrrr duperrrr processors .

    Yes, Its an advertising app yet an informative one. Probably they will get for you the best only what they have. Still it provides one with almost all the basic information required to go even for other makes & then there are benchmarks provided by other sites, isn't it ? I would like to make that RAM upgrade.
    But one! Sometimes their advisor provides better upgrades than their scanner tool.
    Thanks. ...
