Apple Updates iMac Desktops – While not yet the much-anticipated ARM migration, the 27-inch models get significantly more muscular hardware, and the 21.5 variants aren't completely untouched by the company.  While the devices don't change on the outside, important innovations can be found under the hood: the 27-inch iMac retains its well-known 5K display, with an optional matte Nano-Texture cover from Apple Pro Display XDR that makes the display shine. intended to prevent. It’s not a simple matte film, Apple has modified the surface of the glass cover to achieve a matte finish, thanks to which the company says image quality and contrast do not deteriorate in addition to the reduction in glare. At the same time, the company still doesn’t measure the Nano-Texture surface cheaply, dropping the price of iMacs by $ 500 – albeit at a premium of $ 1,000 for the said Pro Display XDR, so the manufacturer may have managed to cut production costs. A new Full HD webcam is watching over the glossy or glare-free panel.
The 27-inch model also gets new processor options, with customers already using Intel's 10th generation Comet Lake. starting with the six-core, 3.1 GHz basic and 4.5-peak Core i5, but with the 3.3 / 4.8 GHz, also six-core i5 chip, or the 3.8 / 5 Giga, eight-core Core i7 the device is also available with a chip. The Core i9 wasn't left out of the options either, with a 3.6-gigahertz base and 5 GHz turbocharger screwed out of the ten-core chip.
graphics work, and the Core i7 and i9 configurations can be equipped with an 8-gigabyte Radeon Pro 5500 XT or 5700 or even a 16-gigabyte Radeon Pro 5700 XT GPU on demand – from which the manufacturer promises up to 55 percent performance improvement. In addition, the company has pushed the maximum capacity of 2,666 megahertz DDR4 RAM to 64 gigabytes instead of 64, which will finally get Apple's T2 security chip.
Contrary to the above, it's not just a change to the 27-inch model, that Apple is now completely saying goodbye to its hard drive SSD hybrids, known as Fusion Drive, and moving to SSD storage across its entire iMac portfolio, including the 21.5-inch iMac. The storage space can be up to 8 terabytes. Another important change around the iMac Pro's case is that it no longer provides the previous eight-core Intel Xeon processor base configuration, instead the series starts with a 3-gighertz base and 4.5-turbo, ten-core version of the chip. Apple has not changed the pricing steps for either model.
