I've run into a problem with my 2012 mini (i7, 2.6GHz,16GB). I have a rc simulator named aerofly 5 (a native mac program). It runs fine on my iMac but on the mini it loads, but has a fps of 1 or 2. The mini exceeds all min requirements except for the graphics chipset. It requires OpenGL 2.1, and nvidia 9400 or ati radeon 2400. I've tried lowering the sims detail and such, but it has no effect whatsoever. I don't guess there is a way to add a different graphics chipset is there?

You can get an external thunderbolt bay where you can insert a desktop gpu. There are some topics related to this over in the gaming section of the fourm, some people have already done it with the same mini as you.

@wahoo: just ask the authors to fix it. The HD4000 should be about 3-4 times as fast as a 9400M.
