Engadget: New Mac Mini is tested

Apple’s new Mac mini may not have gotten quite the overhaul that the iMac got last week, but PC World thinks there’s still quite a bit to get excited about, largely due to the system’s new Core 2 Duo processor. In its tests, PC World found that to give the mini a significant boost across the board including, for example, a 24-percent jump in Photoshop performance over the old 1.83GHz Mac mini (the new 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo mini showed a 19-percent increase). In other tests, the new top-end Mac mini managed to pump out 13-percent more frames per second in Unreal Tournament 2004 than the old top-end model, and it proved to be about even with the new 2GHz Core 2 Duo iMac in tests like Compressor and Cinema 4D, although the mini’s slower 5,400 rpm hard drive caused it to drag in tasks like importing files into iPhoto. If you’re itching for even more benchmarks, you can get your fix at the link below.
