Switching from TOS to NT

I just opened an account with NT to switch over from ThinkorSwim. I was wondering if someone could offer some clarification on the difference in data? While on the demo of NT8, ToS actually ticks faster and updates L2 faster. Their ActiveTrader is faster than the SuperDOM as well. I know the general consensus is that ToS uses aggregated snapshot data so it's delayed. But is it slower on NT8 because I'm still on the demo version? Also, does choosing lease vs. lifetime license change the speed of the data or is it all unfiltered, accurate data from CQG? This post is in regards to FUTURES only.

>does choosing lease vs. lifetime license change the speed of the data
demo, lease, perm license makes no diff on data speed, NT will get stuck if there is a burst of data coming in.

What do you mean it will get stuck? As in, if there's a huge volume surge, it will stutter? Also, if the license does not affect the speed, does that mean ToS is actually faster? Because vs. the NT demo, ToS is ticking faster for me. Maybe I'm confused and the benefit of NT is not the data speed but the speed of order executions?

I agree TOS updates faster and overall better and more user friendly platform for trading IMO, but the executions for me have been better on NT

filtered data is faster than unfiltered data. If you are fine with looking at half a resolution market then it's all good.
> if there's a huge volume surge, it will stutter?
correct, maybe I need more power, not sure, I have win 10, 32MB memory, i7.
