What are your computer specs for your visual work?

I VJ sometimes, as many of us do, and I suspect I need a better machine to handle the processing BUT each time I ask for the specs other people use they are often using specs less than mine. I have a Macbook Pro, i7, 16gb ram, 2gb gpu.
I was running a jit.gl.slab the other day and it skipped some frames here and there when trying to process - https://www.shadertoy.com/view/XlfGRj. I took this approach with the belief it was the most efficient way to go. My VJ setup also included the loading of one 720p movie going to a videoplane.
I'm sure my patch could be analyzed to see how it could be more efficient however I'm not asking for that. Let's believe it achieves moderate efficiency in its structure. Let's assume I won't be able to consistently have the most streamlined patch. With that in mind, I ask to know what PC specs people are running in order to get satisfactory performance.
IF most people tell me they're only using 2gb gpu on an i5 for great performance, then that tells me my patching needs a lot of improvement. That's what I hope to learn
