Re-engineered in no small way.
Part racehorse. All workhorse.
In addition to being an amazing desktop computer, Mac mini powers everything from home automation to giant render farms. And now with eighth-generation Intel quad-core and 6-core processors and Intel UHD Graphics 630, Mac mini has even greater compute power for industrial-grade tasks. So whether you are running a live concert sound engine or testing your latest iOS or iPadOS app, Mac mini is the shortest distance between a great idea and a great result.
Fitting this much power into the same enclosure required an all-new thermal architecture — including all-flash storage, a bigger fan, expanded vents and a redesigned power supply.
Climb in. Geek out.
Mac mini offers high-performance 2666MHz DDR4 SO-DIMM memory for faster rendering, working with massive files or running multiple virtual machines. And now you can configure even more memory — up to 64GB — to run even heavier workloads.
Apps on the double.
Mac mini now includes all-flash PCIe-based storage, with up to four times the read speeds of previous flash options. So you can load giant files and launch apps quicker than ever — and with the available 2TB SSD, you’ll have twice the space for all of them.
Mac mini offers the Apple T2 Security Chip — second-generation custom-engineered Mac silicon designed by Apple to make Mac mini even more secure. The T2 Security Chip consolidates several controllers into one, and includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that offers the foundation for encrypted storage and secure boot capabilities.
Strength in numbers.
Mac mini is optimised for performance across the board. Here is how it compares to the previous generation.
I/O, I/O, it’s off to work you go.
With a variety of ports, Mac mini is prepared for a variety of workflow configurations. Thunderbolt 3 is our most powerful and versatile port ever — and Mac mini has four of them. The new HDMI 2.0 port provides more bandwidth than its predecessor, so you can enjoy faster frame rates. And now Mac mini can be configured with 10Gb Ethernet so it is ready to move mountainous files and monstrous data up to 10 times faster.
Thunderbolt 3 offers you some seriously productive possibilities. Transfer data at up to 40 Gbps. Charge and power external devices. Connect up to two 4K displays — and even a third with HDMI 2.0 — or one 5K display. Or pair Mac mini with an eGPU for desktop-class graphics performance.
To the desktop. And beyond.
Because of its size, performance and wide array of ports, Mac mini goes where no Mac has gone before. And now with even more cores packed into its 19.7-centimetre-square frame, you never know where you will find a Mac mini — or dozens of them — hard at work.
