I edit my Sony RX 10 IV 20mp ARW ==> DNG images in CS6 Bridge
by pressing space bar ==> full frame, left click ==> ?100%? to check for
camera shake, focus, etc. Left click give full frame 100% portion...
(note: I use Photoshop 2022-3 $9.99/mo but old Bridge for familiarity)
It takes 15-30 sec per image to finally get an unpixelated 100% image using:
Thinkpad P40 Yoga Signature Edition
Device name DESKTOP-FITKV5V
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6600U CPU @ 2.60GHz 2.81 GHz
Installed RAM 16.0 GB (15.9 GB usable)
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
Edition Windows 10 Home
Installed on 2/3/2021
OS build 19044.2364
Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4190.0
I would like to reduce the 15-30 seconds per image down to ?5? sec or less;
because I edit 2K+ travel images monthly – is it possible??
I want to stick to laptop, not desktop or Apple;
Can I do it by upgrading current laptop or need new laptop?
Any advice appreciated, thanks in advance, regards.

Bridge is pretty slow for this, unless you set it to build 100% previews of all the relevant folders in advance and make sure the Bridge cache is big enough to hold it all.
I always use Lightroom for this. Not instant either, but a lot faster than Bridge.
Thumbnail and preview generation is Bridge's achilles heel. With a big archive it's very slow. If you ask me, this should be the #1 target for Bridge development in the future.

Thanks for response.
If possible, please dumb down how to build 100% previews in advance.
My laptop has 188gb space free & my daily # of images = 150-300.
After completing a day's worth of 100% previews, how to delete previews?
Thanks in advance.
note: in my Edit > Preferences > Cache > keep 100% previews in cache
was already checked
note2: I think I found it under Tools > Cache > build & export cache !!!
