All-New Mac mini With Up to 64GB RAM and 6-Core Processors launched

Apple-Mac-Mini-2018

Apple at its October 30 event in New York, apart from unveiling the all-new MacBook Air, also launched all-new Mac mini. As was the case with the case with the MacBook Air, the Mac mini hasn’t seen a design refresh in years – since 2014 to be precise. Apple says the all-new Mac mini offers five times the performance as previous generations, up to 6-core processors, apart from more memory capacity (up to 64GB of RAM), and all-flash storage.

Like the new MacBook Air, it comes with the Apple T2 Security Chip, which instead of enabling Touch ID here, provides on-the-fly data encryption amongst other features. Apple also launched two new iPad Pro models at the New York event.

The all-new Mac mini starts at $799 (roughly NRs.95,000), and is up for pre-orders today in the US. It will go on sale on November 7 – which is the same date the all-new MacBook Air. No India availability or pricing has yet been detailed. The Mac mini like its laptop cousin is also the first in its series to be made out of 100 percent recycled aluminium that gives it a smaller carbon footprint – nearly 50 percent less than the previous generation. There is also a brand new air flow cooling system.

The 2018 Mac mini will be powered by a choice of quad-core and 6-core 8th-Generation Intel Core processors, with Turbo Boost clock speeds up to 4.6GHz. Users can choose up to 64GB of RAM, clocked up to 2666MHz. Buyers also have SSD storage options up to 2TB. As for the Apple T2 Security Chip, it features an SSD controller that provides on-the-fly data encryption, and HEVC video transcoding (30 times faster than previous generations), apart from a Secure Enclave that ensures the “software loaded in the boot process is not tampered with.”

Apple has put several I/O ports on the all-new Mac mini, with four Thunderbolt 3 USB Type-C (v3.1) ports (twice as many as the previous generation), one HDMI 2.0 port, two USB Type-A (v3.0) ports, an audio jack, and Gigabit Ethernet, with a 10Gb Ethernet option. With the ports, the Mac mini supports up to 4K and 5K Thunderbolt displays.
