Yes indeed, the processor has actually been downgraded and the memory halved. The hard disk is still 320GB, but its sluggish 5400rpm performance proves to be a bit of a liability in the PCMark Vantage test suite.

Fortunately, there is one major component upgrade, in the shape of Nvidia’s new GeForce 320M graphics-integrated chipset. We don’t have performance numbers for the previous version of the Mac Mini, but the 320M allowed this model to achieve a respectable 45fps when running Far Cry 2.
