After nearly two years, Apple has updated its iMac series with newer processors and graphics chips as a successor to the iPad update. And just like the new iPad mini, all changes are on the inside.
New processors and graphics chips, same case, and prices
If you thought Apple forgot about its iMac line, it would be understandable. Two years is a long time to wait for an update on a computer line (we'll look at your Mac Pro). However, Apple has updated its business with new iMac options that include either last year's processors or last year's processors, whichever you choose. All changes are internal, everything looks the same from the outside. That's fine, they looked good and already had high-resolution displays.
You can get the 21.5-inch iMac with an eighth-generation quad-core processor or a six-core core-core processor. They come with a Radeon Pro 555X GPU or Radeon Pro 560X to meet your display needs. If you need a bit more power, you can always upgrade to a sixth-generation i7 hex processor with a Radeon Pro Vega 20 GPU. The price for the 21.5-inch iMac starts at $ 1099 and goes up from there.
If you need a larger display, today's 27-inch iMac also gets new processors. You can opt for the sixth generation eighth-generation i5 or use nine ninth-generation Core i9 processors. During configuration, you can choose between the Radeon Pro 570X GPU or the Radeon Pro 580X GPU.
Apple makes up most of the new hardware options, pointing out that this is the first time it's 21.5 inch iMac could use the Radeon Pro Vega series. The company claims the new machines are twice as powerful as the iMacs you were able to buy yesterday. This is credible given the time since the last update, but if you are in the market for an iMac, the changes should be welcome.
Apple also added new iMac Pro options
Apple has not stopped using the regular iMac line, and they have a serious question for you. Would you prefer a brand new Fiat 500 or a new iMac Pro? For $ 15,000, you can use the best-equipped iMac Pro ever.
Apple has added new configuration options for the iMac Pro, including the ability to equip your device with 256 gigabytes of RAM and a Radeon Pro Vega 64X GPU. But the costs are incredibly high. If you run from 32 gigabytes of RAM to 256, the price will increase by $ 5200 (about one semester of college). And if you switch from the Radeon Pro Vega 56 to the Radeon Pro Vega 64X, you'll be reset for another $ 700.
However, if you want the most powerful iMac Pro, Apple gives you the option if you can afford it.
