    Was looking at GeekBench scores to see what to expect out of a Haswell i7-4770 and didn't expect to see "Mac Mini" in the listing...

    Can someone confirm whether it's possible that this is real? Does Apple use GeekBench internally prior to releasing machines?

    The Mac Mini you linked to is the current 2.3 gHz Ivy Bridge model. What you're probably seeing in the GeekBench database is a hackintosh with the Haswell chipset and processor that has been labeled as a Mac Mini by its owner.

    Look at the OS, BIOS, Motherboard, etc... are all those things that the owner can label?


    Went to your link, but don't see the clue...

    Seems odd... wouldn't the mobile graphics benefit the mini more? Even if they didn't have a quad-core version and went from the Intel HD 4000 to the Iris 5100, it would be a nice jump, no?

    Edit: Why is the memory 1066 MHz?

    Yes, during Multibeast installation of OS X you can set the computer's identifier to whatever you want. Of course, it could be a real Mini in testing since undoubtably the next Mini will be Haswell based.

    Mac OS X 10.9 (Build 13A510d)
    It's using Mavericks DP3 that's seeded to developers rather than an internal machine specific build as seen with benchmarks of other unreleased hardware in the past few weeks.

    Intel Core i7-4770 @ 3.39 GHz
    Apple doesn't use desktop processors in the Mac mini.

    Apple Inc. MM71.88Z.0106.B00.1307301121
    Date of July 30, 2013?

    8192 MB 1066 MHz DDR3
    Old RAM.

    It's a hackintosh, guys.
