It all hinges on the ability to get Hades to accelerate. Nobody has had success with either the IGPU or Vega graphics being 100% enabled. If you are going to use a eGPU then a less expensive NUC or the Mac Mini is probably a better solution.So, now that the new Mac Mini is out, where does the Hades Canyon stand in terms of performance and value? Comparing the results on Geekbench for the i7-8809G and the 6 core i7 in the Mac mini shows the single core is higher on the Hades Canyon but multicore is higher on the Mac Mini. Assuming the only option you select when configuring the Mac Mini is the i7 and that you will have secondary storage in addition to the base hard drive and will be buying your own RAM to upgrade post-purchase, these two options seem really similar in price. Plus now that the mobile vega support is being incorporated into Mojave this Hades Canyon looks like a potentially better option. Thoughts? Would anyone place any hope in the Hades Canyon or recommend the newly updated mini instead?
