Apple Brings Major Upgrades to iMac, Adds New Chips, GPUs and up to 256 GB RAM

iPad wasn’t the only line to receive some attention and upgrades from Apple.

Ahead of the Match 25th event, Apple not only released a new iPad mini and iPad Air but also seriously bumped up the specs for the iMac line-up.

The base models of the 25-inch 4K Retina Display iMac are now available with either an 8th gen quad-core Intel i3 processor or a six core i3 processor from the same generation. For those who really want more, an option for an 8th gen i7 processor is also available.

That processing power is paired with either an AMD Radeon Pro 555X or an AMD Radeon Pro 560X as the default options and can go up to an AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20 with 4GB RAM.

Unfortunately, if you have a non-Retina model, no upgrades were announced for your setup.

Because it’s quite a lot bigger, the 27-inch iMac with its 5K Retina Display will start off with an 8th gen i5 processor and go up to 9th gen eight-core i9. All that requires quite the graphics upgrade to go along, so Apple customers can get (for $450) the AMD Radeon Pro Vega 48 GPU with 8GB of RAM.

On top of everything, there’s also an option to choose a whopping 256 GB of RAM, though that costs an eye-watering $5200.

If you’re shopping for a new iMac you’ll see a starting price of $1299 for the new iMac 2019 upgraded model and $1799 for the 27-inch iMac with a 5K Retina Display.
