CPU Hogs - Pharlight, Straylight and Ashlight

Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on how to use these instruments in Kontakt or Komplete Kontrol without totally blowing out your CPU? One instance of Pharlight in latest Ableton update is enough to overload my CPU to the point of audio breakup. That's on a recently built custom music computer and Windows 11.

    On the old forum @EvilDragon crushed a lot of people's misconceptions about what a powerful enough CPU for those three instruments is.


    I would love an actual shopping list of possible CPUs that can actually handle the *light trilogy

    Anything that runs at 4 GHz and above should be good.
