Reasons For

5 Reasons For
47% faster processor clock speed Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is a 2.6GHz processor clock speed PC. That's 1.2GHz faster than the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (1.4GHz). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

Faster maximum turbo frequency Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is a 3.1GHz maximum turbo frequency PC. That's 0.4GHz faster than the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (2.7GHz). Read more

The turbo boost is an automatic, managed accelleration of the processor when one of the cores is overloaded.
