some remarks about your report:
Memory: 6144MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 2048MB RAM

Current Mode: 1280 x 720 (32 bit) (60Hz)
Native Mode: 1920 x 1080(p) (60.000Hz)

Display Memory: 1017 MB
Dedicated Memory: 249 MB
Shared Memory: 767 MB
are these figures correct? obv. report is alright, but what about available memory and resolution? seems not quite so to me
also, don't you have a cdrom driver?

that said, such crashes may be expected sometimes
if they're too much vs. the 2.7GHz cpu
(remember dosbox only takes advantage of a single core
that's the one clock that counts and forcing affinity to a singled out cpu never made for any boost in my experience)

the only parameter that might be worth customizing in the \tombraider\*.conf files is as usual the cycles item
while output and core I wouldn't bother with
cycles can be raised or lowered at will, until you happen to find a setting that can improve performance a bit
not always higher will mean faster, though

of course killing all disposable running tasks may help too.
