I haven't done exactly as you described, but I can say that I easily
ran into trouble with a dual core laptop by simply using move_base and
gmapping with laser scanners.

Most of the problems, I believe, come from not being able to process
incoming data quickly enough to make good movement decisions. Your
robot may have to move very slowly to get this to work. Or, you'll
have to use more performant/efficient/limited implementations of
mapping and navigation.
