This evening, the Apple Mac mini was released, with both the M2 and M2 Pro versions available on the official website.The M2+8GB+256GB is priced at 4499 yuan, the M2+8GB+512GB is priced at 5999 yuan, and the M2 Pro+16GB+512GB is priced at 9999 yuan.
For Mac mini, performance is the biggest attraction, and this is the first time Apple has plugged M2 Pro into the Mac mini lineup, pushing Mac mini to new heights of performance. It's official.The M2 Pro's 12-core CPU is up to 1.9x faster than the M1, and the 19-core graphics processor is up to 2.6x faster.
And because the M2 Pro has more CPU and GPU cores, the memory bandwidth is up to twice that of the M2. Processing ProRes, H.264, and HEVC video is fast as hell, and even multiple 8K resolution video streams can be edited simultaneously.
What's more, the M2 Pro packages over 40 billion transistors, twice the number of the M2, with 50% more memory than the M2, and double the memory bandwidth.
Whether you're editing large selections in Lightroom Classic, colorizing 8K video with DaVinci Resolve, working on large projects, and switching between professional workflows, it's all a breeze.
Not only that, but the M2 chip in the standard version of the Mac mini is just as powerful.Compared to M1, M2's next-generation 8-core CPU is up to 18% faster and the new 10-core graphics processor is up to 35% faster.
In addition, Apple has broken through the Soc architecture design by integrating the central processor, graphics processor, unified memory and neural network engine all on a single, power-efficient chip.
One of the innovations in Mac mini is unified memory, which officials say is not comparable to traditional memory. The combined pool of high-bandwidth, low-latency memory allows Apple chips to transfer data more efficiently and do everything smoothly.
In addition to the three versions mentioned above, users can also customize their own configurations on Apple's website. 8GB to 24GB of memory is available for the M2 chip models of Mac mini, while 16GB or 32GB of memory is available for the M2 Pro chip models.
Interface. The M2 version comes with Ethernet, Thunderbolt 4, HDMI, USB-A, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, with the M2 version coming with two Thunderbolt 4 ports and the M2 Pro version with four Thunderbolt 4 ports.
