A clear advantage over the previous Intel-based Mac mini is less the CPU than the GPU performance. Intel’s integrated graphics solution doesn’t have the very best reputation – and the current Mac mini also quickly reaches its limits in terms of graphics. With the “Apple Silicon” -based Mac mini, this is likely to be quite different, because the GPU cores will overshadow the Intel counterpart.
The new Mac mini costs $ 100 less than the previous version, which significantly improves the price / performance ratio. We will submit the euro prices as soon as they are known. The $ 699 should be at least 799 euros, possibly 849 euros.
Apple has not yet given any information on availability, i.e. whether delivery will start this month. During the presentation it was noticeable that Apple emphasizes performance very much and places performance data at the top. There are always comparisons of how much faster the new Macs are – a focus that Apple had already indicated during WWDC.
