Mac Mini GeekBench 2 Score 13,037 (Video)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pW-MWvE6HxE

I just got my new Mac Mini Server 2012 this evening (Halloween) and I took this quick video with my iPhone (view in HD to read the text more easily).

The Mac Mini comes with 2 x 256 SSD (SM256E) from Apple and 16GB of 1600 MHz DD3 RAM from OWC.

I formatted the SSDs, put them into a RAID 0 configuration, and installed Mountain Lion Server. Updated to 10.8.2 and then took this video.

As you can see from the benchmarks below, it's pretty darn good.

That is an awesome performing mini. I wonder what scores it can pull when we can install 32 GB of memory someday when its available.

More memory won't improve GB performance score.

this.


in fact the correct 4 gb sticks might give a better score since the timing could be tighter a 9 vs a 10 the timing on the 8gb sticks may even be 11. what 16 gb sticks will do is allow ram abusive programs to run quicker.

still it is amazing that the new mini is faster then a mac pro is if you are doing handbrake encodes. a 2012 quad mac pro is lucky to score 11000 while the mid with the 2.6 gets over 13000 truly impressive cpu power.

I'm jealous of my 11 year old daughter who will be getting this computer. lol

It's 4 times faster than her 2010 Mac Mini (which becomes my media center computer, which replaces my 2007 Mac Mini previously in that role).

Exactly right. My Mini was scoring slightly higher with 2x4GB sticks, before I upgraded to 2x8GB

Nice.. Can you adapt me? I think your score just convinced me to upgrade my 2011 Mini, which Geekbenches at around 7,500.

Very cool, this is pretty much the exact set up I'm considering so great to see such awesome performance. Thanks for the vid!

does the ssd contribute to the score?

thinking of getting the 2.6 with just one ssd.

The dual SSD in RAID 0 probably contributes to the score nominally.

This Mini will be connected to a 6TB LaCie 2Big thunderbolt drive that I'm running JBOD 3TB + 3TB (Media storage, backups). The Video goes to an HDMI active mirror sending 1080P to my daughter's Samsung Monitor and 1080p to her Samsung TV. That worked best of all the arrangements I tested. Thus she can sit on her bed with a bullettrain or at her desk. http://bullettrain.com/express.html

The internal Samsung SSDs are pretty damn fast all on their own. I wanted to make sure the parts were covered under AppleCare and didn't want to perform surgery on this brand new computer (don't want to assume the risk). (As an aside, I just got a 2010 Mac Mini DVD drive replaced under AppleCare, and I have a 2011 iMac that's having its hard drive replaced under the recall. AppleCare is worth it.)

One thing to note with the server, doing RAID gets rid of any recovery disk. You can't install via a Mountain Lion thumb drive (won't boot off one created from MBP or MBA). Nor can you download it from the app store and create one (says it's not compatible).

You have to use Internet Recovery which takes 3-5 minutes to load for me. It works fine.

I don't think Raid, had anything to do with the score.

I have the same setup but with only one Apple SSD, a 2.6 with 16Gb of ram. I got a slightly better score than you.

You are the dude, man.

I didn't run multiple tests to get a favorable variance. It fluctuates.

In theory, all other things being equal, SSD RAID 0 should speed disk IO tests.

You are right RAID is faster than a single SSD, no doubt.

No need to run multiple tests, they will not differ much from each other. I ran a few and I got around a 13100 average score. I ran them to optimize my memory, not to see how high of a score I can get.

Geekbench doesn't use the HD in determining the scores at all or very little. It's all CPU and memory, not your HD or SSD making the difference. Even though your computer is faster than a single SSD, geekbench doesn't take that into account. Mostly CPU and memory bound test.

Your raid setup will not produce a bigger score on geekbench. My Mini with SSD isn't any faster than a 2.6 Mini without. Faster ram will give you a better score more so than a SSD or raid setup.

Would you mind running Blackmagic Disk Speed Test to give us a feel for how Apple's SSDs do in RAID? If you're not familiar with the program, it's free on the App Store.

For those of us considering non-Apple SSDs for a similar setup, this would be incredibly helpful. Thanks in advance!

Accurate. But for those who are adventurous enough to try it, here is 2x8GB DDR3-1600 204-pin RAM from Newegg rated at 9-9-9-27: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820104317 There are no reviews yet regarding its performance on a Mac, but it's still only 1/2 the price of what Apple charges for RAM.

Seems it does, a little. My geekbench score is the second fastest on the site(geekbench). The only other one faster is a Mini that uses faster ram over 1800. So the program works as intended.

The Mac Mini comes with 2 x 256 SSD (SM256E) from Apple and 16GB of 1600 MHz DD3 RAM from OWC.

I formatted the SSDs, put them into a RAID 0 configuration, and installed Mountain Lion Server. Updated to 10.8.2 and then took this video.

As you can see from the benchmarks below, it's pretty darn good.

http://browser.primatelabs.com/mac-benchmarks
Impressive but I am interested in another benchmark: How high does the temperature run up to and what is the fan speed when you have 100% CPU utilisation? Thanks.

I am waiting for a price drop on that ram.

Impressive but I am interested in another benchmark: How high does the temperature run up to and what is the fan speed when you have 100% CPU utilisation? Thanks.

cpu test results. as you can see the cpu can not be cooled at top speeds of 100% forcing the cpu to downclock.

so basically you are not getting full use of the cpu and apple has failed to provide proper cooling for your 2012 mini.


proper cooling would allow the mini 's cpu to run at 100% endlessly.


just think if they made the machine 1 inch taller with a better heatsink and a better fan but no.

they don't oh well. so once again function follows form well that is apple for you.

Hey Dan! You broke your trim when you set your raid up. I don't know if that bothers you. The only solutuion I found was Softraid, which is somewhat expensive, but that's what I used for my dual 830 Server.
