New to QGIS, running on a Mac with adequate RAM & HD space. Looking to future I find no real hardware specifications.

I want to find more information, can someone point me towards QGIS forum that might have discussions about rendering speed/time in relation to size of documents/maps being built/organized.

There is no special configuration. QGIS works on all Macs from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion. –  gene Apr 9 '13 at 17:29
    
Hello Gene, I am aware in general of QGIS working on SL and up, my question was where to inquire about "optimizing" a system for best rendering. Not necessarily about Mac usage, I cannot speck a MacBook video system usually, however if I change to a windows I can often do this, why, well some GIS applications can make parallel use of "Nvidia Cuda" cores ( Manifold GIS:example ). Is QGIS multiCore aware even? Not stated in obvious places, so was looking for source/forum to ask this and other related questions. –  Terence D Apr 10 '13 at 17:57
    
I work with QGIS on Mac OS X Snow Leopard and sometimes in Windows XP, and I see that the Mac version is faster, see lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-user/2011-June/012564.html –  gene Apr 10 '13 at 19:13
