    Article: Apple's New Mac minis Have Ivy Bridge Mobile CPUs


    Article: Apple's New Mac minis Have Ivy Bridge Mobile CPUs-overview_hero.jpeg
    Apple brought out a slew of new products last week, including a spec bump to Ivy Bridge CPUs on the Mac mini. Many people don't know that the Mac mini "desktop" houses a low power mobile CPU and mobile graphics, making it basically a laptop in disguise. So what's the performance difference between a mobile Ivy Bridge CPU and a desktop Ivy Bridge CPU?

    The new Mac mini is much faster than it used to be. It's staggering how powerful the mobile chips are, expecially the quad-core i7 Mac mini server configurations. The low end Mac mini has a mobile Ivy Bridge i5-3210M, which compares favorably with a desktop Ivy Bridge Core i3-3225, as featured in the CustoMac Mini 2012. However, the higher end desktop CPUs like the i7-3770 outpace the Mac mini server mobile Ivy Bridge Core i7-3615QM. We put the new Mac mini scores against our Ivy Bridge i3/i5/i7 to see the raw performance numbers. Check these Geekbench scores out.

    The mobile Intel Core i5-3210M 2.5GHz vs. the desktop Core i3-3225 3.29GHz. Each CPU has 2 cores and 4 threads.

    The mobile Intel Core i7-3615QM 2.3GHz (4 cores 8 threads) vs. the desktop Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz (4 cores 4 threads, not overclocked) vs. the desktop Intel Core i7-3770 3.4GHz (4 cores 8 threads).

    Interestingly, the non-hyperthreaded desktop Core i5-3570K scores almost as well as the hyperthreaded mobile Core i7-3615QM. This CPU can achieve much greater scores when overclocked. The desktop Core i7-3770 and i7-3770K are in a class by themselves, scoring much higher. If you have any of these Macs or CPUs, or an Ivy Bridge based laptop, list your Geekbench results here!

    My i5 3570K overclocked to 4.4ghz with a Geekbench score of 13,159
    Stock speeds gave me a score of 11,600 usually.

    very interesting to see this screenshot - the i7-3770 scoring higher than most non-overclocked 3770k cpu's no doubt due to the 2133mhz memory. I have noticed that Ivy Bridge seems to respond well to faster memory.
