XBench's web site shows a benchmark for a user's stock 1.66GHz Intel Core Duo Mac Mini in comparison to the previous generation. 1.5GHz. The most interesting result is the OpenGL Graphics Test.

The 1.5GHz G4 Mac Mini scored 75.94 while the 1.66GHz Intel Core Duo Mac Mini scored 185.87, more than double the G4's test result.

The Intel GMA950 is sure to be a hot subject in the coming months in Mac users minds as this is the first time that Apple has used a video card with shared memory (has no dedicated VRAM, uses system memory).

User reportings have said that HD movie trailers from Apple.com playing at 1080P play full screen without dropping frames or losing audio sync.
