Recommended specs are what happen at the end of the dev cycle, post-optimization work. During dev, a game requires much more power because it hasn't been optimized yet, and you may have any number of quick and dirty hacks to get things done. There are also productivity concerns - our game doesn't use a hexcore i7 effectively at all, but the build sure as hell does.
