Apple may launch new iMac with design inspired by the iPad Pro at WWDC20

Benchmarks of alleged iMac with i9 10-core chip appear on the internet

Rumors of a possible update of the iMac some time have been hanging around the internet for some time, they even believed in an advertisement in the middle of WWDC20, something that ended up not happening. Evidence, however, continues to emerge.

THE leaker @_rogame recently published on Twitter the discovery of a mysterious model of iMac, with undefined configurations, in the benchmarks Geekbench 5. The model in question has an Intel processor Core i9 tenth generation and a graphics card AMD Radeon Pro 5300 which, as expected, delivers performance numbers that are quite appetizing to the machine.

More precisely, the processor here is a Core i9-10910, 10 cores and 3.6 GHz (4.7 GHz in Turbo Boost) the family chip Comet Lake, as well as those that equip the recent MacBooks Air, and it seems to be a successor to the Core i9 currently present in the iMac Pro. Interestingly, it has a power of 95W that is not found in the standard chips of the Intel line, which indicates an exclusive modification requested by Apple.

As for GPU, we are talking about a desktop version of AMD Radeon Pro 5300M. Its maximum frequency reaches 1,650MHz and the dedicated 4GB memory is no monster, obviously, but with specifications that can satisfy the graphic requirements of most users.

It remains to be seen, now, when this mysterious new iMac will be officially announced. If the news of the new generation is limited to these internal improvements, it is likely that Ma will simply launch the new computers without much pomp; on the other hand, if the machines receive a new look (as speculated), it is possible that the company will save the announcement for a next event (online). Let's wait.
