New Apple iMac promises twice the speed than before

Share

The 21.5-inch iMac is now equipped with an 8th-generation quad-core, and for the first time 6-core Intel processors, which the company says delivers "up to 60 percent faster performance", while the addition of Radeon Pro Vega graphics provide "80 percent faster graphics performance".

Both the 4K and 5K iMacs get the new 8-core Intel 9th-generation processors, as well as "powerful Vega graphics options". In the U.S., it is priced starting at $1,299 (roughly Rs. 89,600).

Apple's hugely popular iMac range is getting an upgrade which will bring more power and better performance to these stylish desktop PCs. "With its stunning Retina display, unbelievable design, twice the performance, and macOS Mojave that our customers love, iMac is by far the best desktop in the world". The 5K iMac can also be configured with a 3.6Ghz eight-core ninth-generation Core i9 processor. The design of the new iMac lineup remains the same, sleek aluminum and glass enclosure, 5 millimeter-thin profile and lovely matching keyboard and mouse.

These days, if you want to attempt a DIY RAM upgrade on the 21.5-inch iMac, you'd need a lot of experience and a special upgrade kit, something like the ones iFixit sells (they don't have anything for the 2019 model yet).

Apple builds these AiO computers around a choice of Full HD, or 4K display with wide colour gamut and up to 500nits brightness displays. For those with more money than sense, AMD's Radeon Pro Vega 48 GPU with 8GB of memory is available as a custom option for the highest-spec model. The OS is the latest version of Apple's desktop operating system with features like Dark Mode, Stacks, and group FaceTime.
