What sort of horsepower required for post-processing 60Mpx images?

I'm looking through the A7R IV review with the usual drooling covetousness and it occurs to me that one must have some serious horsepower to manipulate these images.

I am still shooting my 24Mpx A77M2 and using a slightly dated but still quite capable i7-6700K desktop with 32GB of DDR3000 and fast SSD drives. It performs very well but I'm somewhat daunted at the prospect of throwing images that are 2.5x the size.

Are my concerns misplaced? Or does a camera like this require a similarly over-the-top desktop for Lightroom and Photoshop work?

Apologies is if this is not the correct forum.

Thank you,

Ottawa, Canada
