Hi all. Like most of us, I've been waiting eagerly for a new Mini for years now. I'm super excited by the new new Mini. Unfortunately I'm not all that familiar with how Intel's line of chips has evolved over time. I'm running a late 2012 quad core i7 2.3 with 16 gig of ram and a single/primary SSD drive. The new mini's are based on i3/i5 chips. Back in the day (ie 20 yrs ago) i understood a highway based example of CPUs - where there were two dimensions to consider 1. the number of lanes and 2. the speed of the lanes. (so I've got 7 lanes running at 2.3mph vs 3 lanes running at 3.2 mph ). I recall that sometimes more lanes running at a slower speed would yield faster results. Not sure this thinking holds now days. Will a new i3/i5 based mini be faster than my current mini? I'm pretty light user - mostly web browsing, lots of youtube loading and viewing and email. I assume the answer is yes, the new ones will be faster but don't really understand why and by how much. Can someone confirm and help me understand why? Thanks all!
