New Mac Mini Benchmarks and Unboxings
Thursday, July 21, 2011
Posted by: Staff

The folks over at Macminicolo have posted up some Geekbench scores of the new Mac minis released yesterday. The new systems are said to be "screamers". The entry-level 2.3GHz Mac mini, featuring the Intel Dual-Core i5 processor, showed over a 2300-point gain from the previous generation models from 2010. The new Mac mini with Lion Server, running the 2.0GHz Intel Quad-Core i7 processor, smashed those results by even more. It showed over a 5500-point gain from the same models.

[Update] We did some testing of our own this evening on all three base models of the 2011 Mac mini. Down below are the results using Geekbench.

I got to admit I am pretty tempted to upgrade. I don't "need" it but it's tempting.

Wow! Wish they had the quad-core server with AMD Radeon HD graphics. That would be one smoking hot little computer.

Agreed! Would have loved to see that configuration.

I know scores aren't perfect, but that's actually a better score than one I saw for the 15" MacBook Pro at the same clock speed. 8804 vs. 9573.

I wonder how the 2.7 i7 with dedicated graphics compares.
