I currently have a 2018 3.2GHz 6-core Intel Core i7 Mac Mini with 64 gigs ram. The logic board is dead and will be around $800.00 to repair.
I’m debating upgrading to the new Mac Mini: Apple M2 Pro with 10‑core CPU, 16-core GPU, 16‑core Neural Engine. This machine maxes out at 32 Gigs ram.
The big question is performance. Cubase now supports high-core-count CPUs. Do you think I will see a noticeable difference going from 6 to 10 core CPU’s or would I need to upgrade to a higher core count?
I’m running Native Instruments Komplete Ultimate and some big sample libraries.
Let me know what you think!
