Recommended Specs For Open World Project

Hey everyone!

I’ve been doing iOS game development for the past few years in UE4, and am considering taking it up a notch. I’m thinking about making an open world horror game, but i’m not sure if my Mac can handle it.

Here is a screenshot of my specs:

It would be great if somebody could give me some insight if I might need to upgrade something, and if so, what.


Im not sure how well the engine will run itself, but I recently was using a new 5k iMac and performance in the editor was pretty bad. I got high fps but tons of stuttering and even more crashing, especially when trying to use other programs like 3ds Max. To be fair though, I was running in bootcamp since game development on OSX isnt ideal.
