Wow...all I can say is the CPU benchmark numbers for the 2018 Mac-Mini are out-of-sight!!!
- The mid-model core i5 3.0GHz model has a Geekbench 3 score of 19,907.
- The top-end 2018 Mac-Mini with the core i7 3.2GHz CPU has a Geekbench 3 score of 24,704.
The top end 2018 Mac-Mini has basically double the Geekbench 3 CPU score of the 2013 3.7GHz quad-core Mac Pro with a CPU Geekbench score of 14,426. Wow!!!
If I was thinking of replacing this model 2013 Mac Pro with a 2018 Mac-Mini...I would want to be sure of at least 2 things:
- Determine what the GPU (graphics) hardware performance comparision is.
- Determine if the 64gig of max RAM for the 2018 Mac-Mini was enough.
Again wow...the 6-core mid & top-end model 2018 Mac-Mini's have come a long way. The entry level 4-core 2018 Mac-Mini is no slouch either. But with a Geekbench CPU score of about 13,828...unless the GPU scores beat a 2013 quad-core Mac-Pro by a decent about...the low end 2018 Mac-Mini does not look as great of a replacement for a 2013 quad-core Mac-Pro.
