How many cores do i need?

I was interested in getting the mac mini with the i7, 32 gbs ram, and 2 tb ssd for running a bunch of virtual machines. Although the i7 in the mac mini only has 6 cores. Is this enough to run 4 vms at once? I figured each machine would need at least 2 cores. Or am i overkilling with my expectations?



Try r/homelab for hardware / virtual machine homelab questions.


If you intentions is to Run VMs, why are you looking for a Mac mini? There are cheaper/better hardware that could do the same thing.
