APPLE HAS GIVEN its 21.5in and 27in iMac a much-needed upgrade with 8th and 9th-gen Intel Core CPUs and Radeon Pro graphics.
The 21.5in iMac is now offered with either a quad-core or - for the first time - six-core 8th-gen Intel CPU, which Apple claims delivers around 60 per cent more performance grunt when compared to 2017's Kaby Lake-powered desktop.
The smaller model can also be specced with an AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20 with 4GB of memory, delivering around an 80 per cent graphics performance improvement.
The 27in iMac ships with a six-core Intel Core CPU as standard, upgraded from quad-core, although buyers can opt for Intel's latest 9th gen, eight-core i9 processor - though it'll set you back a cool £2,609 for the chip that delivers up to 5Ghz Turbo performance
In terms of graphics, the 27in desktop is offered with AMD's Radeon Pro 570X, 575X, and 580X GPUs for prebuilt models, with Apple touting a 50 per cent improvement in graphics performance. 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.
Both iMacs ship with 8GB RAM as standard, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports, and a 1TB fusion drive, though the highest configuration model ups this to 2TB.
"With its stunning Retina display, amazing design, twice the performance, and macOS Mojave that our customers love, iMac is by far the best desktop in the world."
So that's why she's smiling…
