Unreal Editor Resource Utilization Windows Vs. Linux, Can My Computer Handle The Editor?

I’m trying to figure out if this is true or not. I tried to run te unreal editor in Linux and it seemed to be extremely resource intensive. I’m wondering if running it from windows is less so. Can my computer run the unreal editor better on windows than on linux?

My specs:
vRam : 8 GiB
Processor: 13th Gen Intel Core-i9-13900H x 20 core
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop GPU
Disk: 1TB
ram: 64gig

I’d like to do something nice in 3D, im just worried that my setup cant handle it.


It looks fine, but even if you used this system in windows you would probably see CPU = 30% GPU = 100%. It is an intense program.

One thing that helps, during editing, is to turn off real-time. Click on the editor window and then press CTRL-R.
