You will need to do some more research on your own. May be that a different 
camera, or a different re-coding platform, is needed to fit requirements. 
And what are those requirements? Are they sensible for the application? For 
instance, 60FPS is not needed for most uses. Do you really need HD? We can't 
answer that, nor provide much advice about hardware selection.

Added for the last reply--
If you can't change the camera, and can't change it's settings (can you?), 
then you'll have to find a more powerful computer or change the 
workflow/parameters. (Is there a reason not to capture in the GoPro and 
collect the video later?)

Please remember that this list is about the ffmpeg software, it's not a 
general video processing list.
