Reasons For

17 Reasons For
Faster processor clock speed Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has a processor clock speed of 2.6GHz, but the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH is only a unknownGHz processor clock speed PC (2.6GHz slower). 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.

Vastly higher system bus data transfer rate Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has a system bus data transfer rate of 5GT/s, however the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH is only a unknownGT/s bus data transfer rate PC (5GT/s lower). Read more

A bus is a communication system that transfers data between components inside a computer, or between computers. The system bus rate is the speed at which data is transferred in this communication system.

Bigger processor cache Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is a 3MB processor cache PC. That's 3MB bigger than the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH (unknownMB).
Faster maximum turbo frequency Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has a maximum turbo frequency of 3.1GHz, but the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH is only a unknownGHz maximum turbo frequency PC (3.1GHz slower). Read more

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

Faster max memory bandwidth supported processor Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is a 25.6GB/s max memory bandwidth supported processor PC. That's 25.6GB/s faster than the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH (unknownGB/s).
Faster memory clock speed supported by processor Edit
Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is 1,333MHz memory clock speed supported processor, but the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH is only a unknownMHz memory clock speed supported processor PC (1,333MHz slower).
Bigger max internal memory supported processor Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has a max internal memory supported processor of 16GB, but the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH is only a unknownGB max internal memory supported processor PC (16GB smaller).
8GB bigger internal memory Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is an 8GB memory PC, whereas the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH is only a unknownGB memory PC (8GB smaller). Read more

A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.

A higher internal memory will allow the computer to run more quickly.

Vastly faster memory clock speed Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has a memory clock speed of 1,600MHz, however the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH is only a unknownMHz memory clock speed PC (1,600MHz slower). Read more

The frequency at which the memory (e.g. RAM) runs.

Bigger maximum internal memory Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has a maximum internal memory of 16GB, but the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH is only a unknownGB maximum internal memory PC (16GB smaller). Read more

The maximum internal memory which is available in the product.

Vastly bigger total storage capacity Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is a 256GB total storage capacity PC. That's 256GB bigger than the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH (unknownGB). Read more

The total internal storage capacity is the space available for the computer to store documents, media and applications.

A bigger internal storage capacity means that you can store more applications, documents and media on the computer.

1,100MHz faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is a 1,100MHz on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency PC. That's 1,100MHz faster than the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH (unknownMHz).
200MHz faster on-board graphics adapter base frequency Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 200MHz, whereas the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH is only a unknownMHz on-board graphics adapter base frequency PC (200MHz slower).
Bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memory Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 is a 1.74GB maximum on-board graphics adapter memory PC. That's 1.74GB bigger than the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH (unknownGB).
Newer Intel Identity Protection Technology version Edit
The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has an Intel Identity Protection Technology version of 1, but the Intel BOXNUC5I3RYH is only a unknown Intel Identity Protection Technology version PC (1 older).
Vastly newer Intel Secure Key Technology version Edit
