Has anyone developed a set of standard tasks for benchmarking NT8 yet?
I'd like to know where my setup might rank within the community?

Do you mean benchmarking NT8 against other trading platforms?

No, just different hardware running the same NT8 benchmark.
Just to see what is possible.

Okay, but then I suspect to benchmark in the way you are thinking you would need to have everyone with exactly the same number of charts, indicators, data feed, etc. as - the way I understand it - NT8 can be sensitive in terms of performance according to how much stuff you have loaded.

Yep, that's exactly it.
I was thinking with Ninjatraders' own data feed.

Performance is of interest, but round trip time to the brokerage can put a bottleneck in place that makes your workstation performance irrelevant.

Mine's about 17 ms. I use the Ninjatrader Brokerage and am about 100 miles from their servers in Chicago. If I set up a straddle when a report's about to come out, same strategy using Sim101 and using my live account, the Sim account almost always makes 10-20 ticks. Live account almost always doesn't get filled at all.

My computer uses 64-bit Win 10, has 32GB of RAM and a 3.8GHz Quad-core processor. I routinely have 13 NT windows open, with 9 having charts, usually with 3 instruments. Most have few indicators, but some have several on each instrument, including a relative volume indicator that's constantly averaging the current minute's volume over the last 60 days. All that going on and it is very responsive, even running backtesting in a Strategy Analyzer window. No slowing down, except if I load volume footprints, and even then only when the chart is first being drawn.
