Optimize Unreal Engine 4 For Macs

I am a new unreal engine developer, I used to be a unity developer however felt the unreal engine is better. I do not have great, or even “ok” hardware, and was hoping there are some ways to optimise my unreal engine’s performance.
My tech specs are :-

Dual core Intel core i5 2.4 Ghz with 3mb L3 cache (and 256*2 L2 cache)

4 GB of 1600 Mhz DDR3 RAM

Intel Iris 1536 MB GPU

I have a late 2013 13" macbook pro retina
Any Help is greatly appreciated !

Hello MVPaaryan,

Currently our recommended specs to run UE4 are quad cores with 8 gb of ram. You may still be able to run the editor with with your current build but I would expect extreme performance issues.

Regarding optimization of your project itself, it depends. Dynamic lighting will always be more expensive than baked lighting. You want to not use too many dynamic objects within your scene. Setting cull distances will help performance. Limiting the amount of particles in your scene. Things along those lines.
