2018 Mac mini

See 2018 Mac mini buying recommendationsMac wish listall Mac mini 2018 models. Unsure which Mac to get or how to configure it? Consult with MPG.

This page uses the mt stress of diglloydTools MemoryTester to evaluate memory bandwidth by a real application. Not to be confused with memory or CPU specifications—this is the real deal, what an application actually has available to it combined with what any operating system overhead entails.

Memory bandwidth can be affected by CPU throttling (for reasons of excess heat), so these figures represent what is possible with sustained memory access for 3+ minutes.

Memory bandwidth is especially important for more CPUs and/or fast ones. All of these machines offer less than half the memory bandwidth of the iMac Pro.

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.
