    Curious how the Quadcore handles CS:GO, Diablo 3, and maybe BL 2 for some light TV based gaming. Did some searching through the first through pages and didn't see anything so far.

    Edit...found this, but if anyone has any feedback let me know:

    I did some graphics benchmarking (Mac mini quad core 2.6), and the mini's graphics don't blow one's socks off. For instance, with a 2540 x 1440 display the Unigine Heaven benchmarker (which is basically 26 different 3-D textured movement scenes from a game rendered back to back) got less than 7 frames per second (I hadn't shut down other applications, but nothing else was really happening on the Mac mini during the benchmarking). I think I got about double that with the display at 1920 x 1200 and everything shut down, but I don't remember for sure. At any rate, it was hurky-jerky.

    I also ran Cinebench, NovaBencn, XBench, Geekbench, and Power Fractal. If any of these mean anything to you I could post results.
