Is Corel Painter more gpu or processor heavy?

    I am needing to purchase an mac mini that will be running Painter occasionally and I'm a bit fearful of the integrated graphics, but I note that the HD4000 is about equivalent to the Radeon HD 6630M card that was in the 2011 mac mini.

    However I'm thinking of getting a current mini with an i7 processor and I was wondering if the i7 is going to make that much of a difference or does Painter mainly use the power of the integrated gpu.

    For running anything occasionally you'll be just fine with a Mini.

    If the folks that make Painter haven't talked about the software taking advantage of the GPU then it doesn't.
