I'm currently running old hardware. I expected new imacs on the 30th, but Apple surprised everyone by doing Mac Mini instead. 

My question is, how much is Logos 8 performance dependant on GPU performance? You can get the mini with a nice 6-core, RAM, and SSD, but the GPU is quite underpowered.

I don't think that the GPU matters much. On the MacBook Pro with a discrete GPU Logos has sometimes been a problem as there is a bug that will sometimes invoke it and it sucks battery power rapidly. That hasn't been a problem lately. (Except the Atlas does it in L8.) All that is to say that a high performance GPU, in my experience, is not necessary.

I have a 15 inch MacBook Pro, with an integrated Intel HD Graphics 530 GPU and an AMD Radeon Pro 455. I've ran Logos on both of them and can't say that I've ever noticed a difference in performance.
