Macworld Benchmarks New Mac Minis

Macworld has posted a series of benchmark results for the new Mac minis released this week. The testing pretty much confirms earlier results, which showed a giant leap in processor performance over the previous generation. And based on Macworld's testing, that led to better iTunes encoding, HandBrake encoding, and Cinebench CPU scores. Their graphics testing, which included Cinebench GPU and Call of Duty 4 tests, showed more mixed results. They have the new 2.3GHz Core i5 Mac mini with integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 lagging behind the older 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo Mac mini with integrated GeForce 320M graphics. But the new 2.5GHz Core i5 Mac mini with discrete AMD Radeon HD 6630 graphics, pretty much blows it out of the water. It was able to display nearly twice as many frames per second in Cinebench's OpenGL test, and 53 percent more frames per second in Call of Duty 4. So if you're into gaming, it should be pretty clear which Mac mini to go with. I would suggest that you head on over to Macworld and check out the entire article though. It's an interesting one to say the least.
