MPG tested the 2018 Mac mini 15-inch 3.2 GHz 64GB 1TB UHD630.
This page uses the mt stress command of diglloydTools MemoryTester to evaluate memory bandwidth with a real application using all CPU cores.

The 2018 Mac mini shows slightly inferior memory bandwidth to the 2017 iMac 5K. Whether this is the result of some kind of throttling from heat or some impairment from macOS Mojave cannot be easily told.
