i7 mac mini is a tiny, ultra-thin, iMac that I just cannot live without. I love how slim and portable it is and it’s easy to hold.
i7 mac mini will be the first iMac to have an Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 Ti GPU (2GB RAM). This GPU is the most important component of the Mac mini. Nvidia is putting in a 6th generation GPU that is said to boost performance by up to 30% and enable quad-core performance. I love having more memory capacity than I ever have before, and I cannot wait to test out the new Mac mini’s 64-bit architecture.
I am actually very excited to be able to test this. The latest version of Mac OS X has 64-bit architecture, which means that you can now run 64-bit applications on Mac OS X. As much as I know about 64-bit applications, I’m still a bit skeptical about the power of 64-bit applications. I just hope that Microsoft makes the 64-bit versions of their applications compatible with Mac OS X.
The main reason why people go 64-bit is because of the potential for more apps being written for 64-bit systems. The thing is, it’s not that easy to write a 64-bit app. So if you’re writing an app for a 64-bit computer, you need to ensure that you’re writing an app which can use 64-bit memory. This is where Intel’s architecture comes in.
The Intels architecture is a set of techniques used in computer architecture to break the 64-bit limitation of current architectures. It’s actually a set of techniques for dealing with the limitations of 64-bit machines without having to write 64-bit code. This is, however, not an easy task, so there are currently no plans to support 64-bit applications on 64-bit Intel architecture.
The reason for this is the fact that Intel is not currently actively implementing support for 64-bit applications. This means that an application using 64-bit code may not work on 64-bit machines. For a very long time we were going to have an option to enable 64-bit applications, but due to the fact that Intel is not actively working on 64-bit support, the option is currently not available.
The 64-bit situation is similar to the 32-bit situation. You want to support 64-bit, but you don’t want to put the burden of a 64-bit machine onto your application. Intel is not actively working on 64-bit support, so currently you can’t enable 64-bit support for applications that you are using on 32-bit platforms.
This is a bit of a bummer since 64-bit applications are used for some really really good things. The best example is the 64-bit version of Skype. That’s a lot of memory and CPU power to handle an image, but it allows the person in the other room to type more efficiently.
Its true that 64-bit applications are better optimized for 64-bit CPUs, but this is only true on the 32-bit platform. Applications that are not using the 64-bit feature will still run fine on 32-bit platforms and will do the best they can to take advantage of it.
In terms of performance, 64-bit applications should be considered to be better than 32-bit applications. 64-bit applications are faster to execute and they can handle more memory. However, they are not able to access the full 256-bit address space of the CPU and therefore they can only go as fast as the speed of the slowest CPU on the market. So if you have your OS set to 64-bit, you will have a lot of trouble accessing the full address space.
