My dad (a prosumer, uses things like After Effects and Premiere with all kinds of plugins and renderers) currently owns a completely maxed-out 2013 Mac Pro (12-core). He has been complaining about it being really long in the tooth now and he’s eying the new Mac mini, maxing it out with the 3.2 GHz i7 and get the BlackMagic eGPU Pro. Would this be a step up for him? I see that in GeekBench, the Mini crushes the Pro in single core, but the Pro still has an edge in multi core, but not by too much if I read it correctly. Would he notice a step down in CPU performance, due to raw power and/or thermals (give his use case)? I presume the GPU is bound to be a step up, right? Do you think he should do it?
