I've got both KOTOR games installed with all the mods and they work great on a modern PC, and anything from the last 10 years is fast enough for them.

I was running it on my 8th gen i5 laptop and it was a little laggy. Could be due to thermal throttling since it's an ultrabook. What mods do you have installed?

I have the content restoration mods (which are essential, especially for the second game), widescreen mods and HD texture mods for both games.

I'd vote for the older system, because it's a much older game.

Probably would run better with Win XP than a newer OS.

Also I think the old DGPU is still better than a U series HD620.
I doubt the performance difference in the CPU matters much.
The game came out when single core Pentium 4 was a thing.
Actually, if you can disable HT it'll probably help.
