Mac mini vs MacBook Pro 16
As per title folks, torn between the two. My dual core 13inch MacBook is holding my FPS back a bit so looking to upgrade and looking for advice.
I feel I have forgotten half of what I have read over the last year or two as my set up has been relatively stable so need to go back through the build guides and read up.
I think I'm going to stick with my LG 5K display as having BSOD issues when trying to use an LG UK850 I bought to replace it (will be sending back this week) so I need to keep one internal GPU working to power the 5K.
I'm quite drawn to the 16inch, and would probably pair it with an Nvidia card for Bootcamp as the 5500m would prob be fine for macOS.
Why not Navi? According to @itsage's testing loopback performance is terrible whereas Vega and RTX the difference is minimal (5% ish)
Anyone have any recommendations/thoughts?
@eightarmedpet I personally wouldn’t go with the 2019 16″ MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro lineup is heading back in the right direction but the possibility of a 13″/14″ model with the same recipe is a lot more appealing to me. Also Ice Lake with on-die TB3 controller means there’s no difference between Thunderbolt 3 connection anymore. Waiting for a few more months is my recommendation.
@itsage that’s a great point, totally forgot about the rumours of the small MacBook refresh. It would be great if they were the spec you mentioned and hit plugging worked as per the recent big MacBooks...
