Hi dnetlord,

In my experience, block-producing node needs to be more powerful, especially in CPU, because it has to do a lot of work, like block forging, rewards calculations… And it needs to do that fast or it will miss slots.

Hope that helps.

I’m of the opposite opinion to Stay Pool. The relay node needs to have more power as it is handling many connections. The block producer has a lazy life by comparison :blush:
