Fourth-generation quad-core Intel Core i5 processors across the line
Powered by fourth-generation Intel Core processors, this iMac is the fastest yet. Every model in the lineup comes standard with a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, starting at 2.7GHz and topping out at 3.4GHz. And at the Apple Online Store, you can configure your iMac with an even more powerful Intel Core i7 processor, up to 3.5GHz.
Next-generation NVIDIA GeForce graphics, up to 40 per cent faster
iMac graphics are more powerful across the board. NVIDIA GeForce 700 series graphics processors are even faster than the previous generation and include double the video memory. So you'll see more frames per second in 3D games, and you can edit HD home videos with more speed and responsiveness than ever before. And you can get discrete-level performance in the 2.7GHz iMac with integrated Intel Iris Pro graphics.
FaceTime HD camera
Get more of your friends in the picture with crisp, widescreen HD video. The new FaceTime HD camera lets you make FaceTime video calls in 720p resolution. The picture is so clear, it will look and feel almost like you’re in the same room. Make HD calls from one new iMac to another or to a new MacBook Pro. You can also make video calls to other Intel-based Mac computers, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, or the latest iPod touch.3
macOS is the operating system that powers everything you do on a Mac. macOS Sierra introduces Siri to Mac — along with new ways to enjoy your photos, shop more securely online, and work more seamlessly between devices..
High-speed I/O, including two Thunderbolt ports, four USB 3 ports
Ultrafast and ultraflexible, the tiny Thunderbolt port offers unprecedented transfer speeds and incredibly versatile expansion capabilities. Connect high-performance peripherals such as external drives, cameras, audio and video capture devices — even Mini DisplayPort displays for more screen real estate. All iMac models include two Thunderbolt ports, so you can create the ultimate do-anything desktop.
Bring on your printer, digital camera, mobile phone, and external hard drive. Every iMac comes with four USB 3 ports — with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2 — so you’ll have plenty of peripheral possibilities, including your iPhone or iPod, printer, or Apple USB SuperDrive. And the USB 3 ports are fully compatible with your USB 2 devices.
Creating such a stunningly thin design took some equally stunning feats of technological innovation. We refined, re-imagined, or re-engineered everything about iMac from the inside out. The result is an advanced, elegant all-in-one computer that's as much a work of art as it is state of the art. Learn more
Beautiful, LED-backlit widescreen display
How did we make an already gorgeous widescreen display even better? By making it 75 percent less reflective. And by re-architecting the LCD and moving it right up against the cover glass. So you see your photos, games, movies, and everything else in vivid, lifelike detail.
Optional Fusion Drive, now up to 50 per cent faster
Fusion Drive is our breakthrough storage option that combines a high-capacity hard drive with high-performance flash storage. And now it's up to 50 percent faster than before. Fusion Drive automatically and intelligently manages your data so that frequently used apps, documents, photos, and other files stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. You'll enjoy shorter boot times, and as the system learns how you work, you'll experience faster application launches and quicker file access.
Faster 802.11ac Wi-Fi
iMac now supports ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi. When it’s connected to an 802.11ac base station — including the new AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule — wireless performance is up to 3x faster than with the previous generation of iMac.5 And your Wi-Fi range improves as well.
