Apple Introduces Serious Hardware In Its New iMacs

Seriously heavy hitters for pros

Apple has announced new iMacs to its lineup in their WWDC today. While the new iMacs sport identical enclosures from the previous iteration, the company has beefed up the internals of the new lineup. Long story short, the new iMacs are faster with better displays – they come packing Intel’s new Kabylake processors, as well as a new panel that’s 500 nits bright and has the capability of displaying around 1 billion colors.

Discrete graphics have been added to most models, with the 21.5-inch models getting Intel’s Iris Plus 640 while the 4K model gets a Radeon Pro 555 and 560. The 27-inch iMac gets better GPUs, with a choice of either the AMD Radeon Pro 570, 575 and 580. The 21.5-inch model also gets 32GB of RAM now, along with Fusion drives. The 27-inch model gets a whopping 64GB of RAM and Fusion drives as well.

The standard 21.5-inch iMac is expected to retail at $1,099, with the 4K version going for $1299. The high-end 27-inch variant goes for $1799.
