Intel today officially revealed its schedule of 10th-generation “Comet Lake” desktop processors, which includes a variety of chips that would be appropriate for the iMac. AnandTech information all 32 of the new CPUs in arranged tables, but just a handful of the chips would make their way right into the iMac.
On top of the checklist is the front runner Core i9-10900K that Intel calls the globe’s fastest video gaming processor. The i9-10900K features 10 cores as well as a base regularity of 3.7 GHz, while Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost can press single-core rates to 5.3 GHz. It’s additionally the successor to the i9-9900K chip presently made use of in the highest-end iMac arrangements, so it’s likely the brand-new chip will undoubtedly make its way right into Apple’s schedule.
The current iMac family, except the obsolete low-end version, utilizes a mix of 8th- as well as 9th-generation “Coffee Lake” chips, every one of which has all-natural replacements in the new Comet Lake generation.
All-natural replacements for the 21.5-inch iMac schedule consist of the new Core i3-10100, Core i5-10500, and Core i7-10700, while the 27-inch iMacs would see the Core i5-10500, Core i5-10600, and also Core i5-10600K, along with the high-end i9 alternative.
While these are reasonable assumptions at what we could see in the next-generation iMac, there’s no warranty that Apple will undoubtedly go with direct follower chips at each spot in the lineup. That’s particularly true because rumors are indicating a “considerable” refresh of the lineup with a future redesign, including a reported 23-inch design.
Timing for the iMac upgrade stays unpredictable, as the 23-inch design rumor claimed the brand-new maker would certainly be coming in the 2nd fifty percent of the year. In contrast, reputable leaker “CoinX” cryptically claimed in March that both iMac and Mac mini updates would undoubtedly become “quickly.” The Mac mini upgrade did come 2 weeks later on, yet we’ve yet to see anything main regarding new iMacs.
Intel claims the brand-new 10th-generation Comet Lake desktop computer chips will be offered at retail and in desktop computer makers beginning in May.
