New Mac Mini 2018 specifications

Let’s talk about the Mac mini specifications. Claimed to be powered by faster and more powerful processors, the new Mac Mini starts with 4 cores and goes up to 6 cores. They’re said to be 5 times faster than the previous generation minis. Apple specially quoted on stage that these aren’t mobile cores, as one may think there are as much as eight cores on mobile phones, why would one want a PC with 4 cores. These are eight generation cores claiming to offer 60% faster graphics.

The new Mac mini will come with up to 64GB of memory on removable SO-DIMMS. Every new Mac mini model will offer all-flash storage support up to 2TB SSD. It now comes with Apple’s T2 security chip. Talking about the ports it has a Gigabit Ethernet, four thunderbolts 3 ports, HDMI and two USB-A ports. There is a support of 10-gigabit ethernet. And there is a 3.5mm audio jack. No point removing here, anyway. Thank god, they understand it.

Talking about the processor, it has Intel’s i3 quad-core processor, which could clock up to 3.6GHz. The Mac Mini starts with an 8GB memory and a standard 128GB SSD storage.
