Apple added a few upgrades to its 27-inch iMac today, including 10-core Intel processors, higher memory capacity, better AMD graphics and faster SSDs.
Up to 10-core processors, 65% better CPU performance
The upgraded iMac can be equipped with 6-core or 8-core 10th gen Intel processors, but those who want more can go for the 10-core processor; this enhances the CPU performance up to 65% as compared to the previous generation 8-core iMac.
Higher memory capacity, upgraded AMD graphics, bigger SSD
Apple also doubled the memory capacity for its iMac to 128GB and upgraded the AMD graphics. Now, the iMac uses the Radeon Pro 5000 series graphics and offers up to 55% faster performance graphics-wise. There’s also an 8TB SSD option and the Apple T2 Security Chip which provides stronger data encryption.
The Retina display is also better now; there’s a new nano-texture glass that improves the viewing experience and reduces reflection and glare on the 5K display. To top it off, the FaceTime HD camera supports 1080p resolution and the T2 Security Chip enhances the camera experience with tone mapping, exposure control and face detection.
