Real Hardware Requirements for Editing

Just updated my version of Capture One Pro to version 7.2 and came upon this paragraph in the release notes:-

"Recommended system requirements
Working with high resolution camera systems, doing certain types of adjustments or doing many
things simultaneously may put too much pressure on a minimum requirements system to work
properly. In such cases and to optimize performance, please follow the recommendations below:
• Use processors with multiple cores, e.g. Intel Core i7TM or better
• Have 16 GB of RAM or more
• Leave plenty of hard disk space free for your images
• A fast hard disk e.g. a Solid State Disk (SSD)
• A fast Graphics card from NVIDIA or AMD, e.g. AMD Radeon 7950 (Mac) / 7970 (Win),
NVIDIA GTX 680 or Quadro K5000, with updated drivers and a minimum of 2GB RAM"

At last some realism about what is realy required.
