Intel Iris Graphics

A 1TB Fusion Drive gives you the best of both capacity and speed. Fusion Drive automatically and intelligently manages your data to ensure that frequently used apps, documents, photos and other files load quickly from the integrated flash storage, while lesser used files are still accessible on the hard drive. The more you use your Mac mini, the more it will learn about how you work, optimising your performance even more.
