Mac mini server quad core gone.
Does anyone have experience with FMS on a haswell dual core vs the previous quad core i7 in the mac mini?
Is the new machine a worse choice for FMS?
The hardware's suitability really depends on the number of files you're hosting, the number of users and any other variables such as server side scripting, calculations and types of data stored such as container fields and the media within.
Also factor into the equation the disk subsystem you plan to use, the single internal HDD or a thunderbolt external enclosure. The new Mac Mini have 2 thunderbolt ports which is an improvement.
Estimated Geekbench score of dual-core 2014 mini's is about 1/2 of quad-core 2012 machines.
