2018 Mac mini: Photoshop Filters

MPG tested the 2018 Mac mini 15-inch 3.2 GHz 64GB 1TB UHD630.

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.

2018 Mac mini

This set of tests with these Photoshop filters offers a detailed look as to how the 2018 Mac mini fares with to the 2015 MacBook Pro (and thus by implication the 2016 MacBook Pro and 2017 MacBook Pro) as well as the 2017 iMac 5K.

Results: Photoshop Filters

The results are a mixed bag, but summarized show the following:

The 2018 Mac mini (green bars) is a little faster on three of the tests, but slower on four others, and considerably slower on Sharpen—half as fast. The dedicated GPU on the 2017 iMac 5K looks to be a player in this regard.

The results suggest that unless an eGPU is used, the 2018 Mac mini might a marginal choice for things like video processing, which are GPU intensive. The built-in Intel UHD Graphics 630 just isn’t a great performer in general, delivering spotty results for differing tasks.
