Hey everybody, I am looking to upgrade my early 2009 3.06GHz iMac. It’s served me faithfully for a decade but I think it’s time. I am evaluating a two tiered approach: 1) a MacMini as a HTPC (Plex, Handbrake, retro gaming) and 2) simple MacBook or MacBook Air for family use (e-mails, web surfing, Roblox for the kids). Can anybody speak to the expected difference in computing power between my existing machine and the current 3.2GHz 6‑core i7 Mac Mini? I’ve looked at Geekbench and my current iMac has single/multi scores of 2115/3630. The Mac mini has 5667/24,326. The numbers are much bigger but IRL what should I expect from the following programs. Handbrake: I assume that the mini will encode faster Dolphin Emulator: My iMac cannot run games at full speed, would you expect the Mini to be powerful enough to drive this. Dying to play Wind Waker!! OpenEmu: My current iMac has no issue with most systems emulated with OpenEmu, I assume that the Mini should have zero issues here as well? Plex: My iMac struggles even with direct play on my local network I am hoping that it will be running smoother even with Handbrake or gaming going on at the same time. Any input would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!!!
