Apple just updated their iMac lineup with faster Radeon Pro Vega graphics, and 9th-gen Intel CPUs.
You can configure the 27‑inch iMac with 5k up to:
- 3.6GHz 8-core 9th-generation Intel Core i9 processor, Turbo Boost up to 5.0GHz
- 64GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory
- Radeon Pro Vega 48 with 8GB of HBM2 memory
- 2TB SSD storage or 3TB Fusion Drive
As of this writing you will have to give $5,249 to Apple for the above 27-inch configuration.
You can configure the 21.5‑inch iMac with 4K up to:
- 3.2GHz 6-core 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.6GHz
- 32GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory
- Radeon Pro Vega 20 with 4GB of HBM2 memory
- 1TB SSD storage or 1TB Fusion Drive
As of this writing you will have to give $3,349 to Apple for the above 21.5-inch configuration.
You can of course opt for lower specs to save some money. If you go for 16GB memory on the 27-inch instead of 64, it will cost you “only” $2,899.
Design and display-wise it is still the same as the 2012-model. Silver is the only color available as space-grey is reserved for the iMac Pro.
These iMacs doesn’t have any T-series chip as the iMac pro has.
Apple also updated the iMac pro with the possibility to add 256GB RAM, and an Radeon Pro Vega 64X option.
