    I'd like to compare the speed of Apple's ram to the speed of other manufacturers' SSD's. Samsung, Crucial,etc. Especially the ram used with 32 gb.

    RAM and SSD are two entirely different components. What are you asking?

    RAM in the 2018 Mini is 2666MHz and can be upgraded, Crucial has kits and the speed of memory is dictated by the memory bus on the motherboard. If you intend to upgrade the memory, any compatible memory will be roughly the same speed.

    SSD is not upgradable, it comes soldered to the motherboard and is PCIe.

    It doesn't matter. It's off the shelf stuff. The few Mhz difference will be inconceivable in the real world. It might show up in benchmarks, but honestly who cares. Get the one at the best price and spend the left-over cash on beer.

    Might as well throw in some lottery tickets as well. Maybe then you will be able to afford Apple’s SSD and ram prices ;)
