MacWorld Examines Mac mini + Graphics
9:08 AM | Anthony Wang | 9 comments

As a few of our readers are already discussing in the IMG forums, MacWorld has posted new benchmarks for the recently announced Intel-based Mac minis. The new Mac minis features faster processors, improved connectivity, and for the first time ever, a graphics card using shared memory. MacWorld tested the Mac mini on common applications, professional software, and Unreal Tournament 2004.

One change to the Mac mini’s architecture appears even more controversial than the processor swap: The switch from ATI’s Radeon 9200 graphics with dedicated memory to integrated Intel graphics that use 64MB of system memory have some users up in arms. And while the debate continues, Macworld’s initial results show the new minis lagging behind their predecessors in Unreal Tournament 2004 by a couple of frames per second.
See the results for yourself by clicking on the link below.
