I don't know the exact requirements, but openMW has higher system requirements than morrowind. You can check their page.
Yea, I don't get it. Vanilla GOTY Morrowind runs horribly on it and I can't figure out why. Don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting it to run like it does on my 4790k but something isn't right. And it's definitely on the cpu side, as places like Balmora just kill me.
A 2.4ghz puma quad like mine is roughly equivalent to a 3.2ghz FX in single core performance so it's not exactly horrible for a 15w tdp laptop from 2014. I run much newer far more demanding games at higher fps.
