General Features

Retina Display

Everything looks better on a Retina display, with its one billion colors and 500 nits of brightness. Photos and graphics leap off the screen. Text is supersharp. And for the first time, the 2" iMac features True Tone technology for a more natural viewing experience.

Processor and Memory

iMac and powerful processors go hand in hand. The 27" model offers up to a 10-Core Intel Core i9 processor to sail through heavy tasks like layering dozens of audio tracks or compiling and testing code. It can also be configured with up to 128GB of memory, which is double the capacity of the previous generation, to fly through the most complex pro workflows up to twice as fast.

Graphics

The graphics on iMac make everything a sight to behold. The 27" model brings AMD Radeon Pro 5000 series graphics with up to 16GB of GDDR6 memory for graphics-intensive workflows like editing UHD video or developing lifelike game environments.

Storage

All-flash SSD storage is now standard on all iMac models, bringing high capacity and lightning speed. The 27" iMac can now be configured with up to 8TB of SSD storage with up to 3.4 GB/s sequential read and write speeds, for screaming-fast access to all of your photo and video libraries, massive files, and pro apps.

Camera, Speakers, and Mics

From crystal clear video calls and voice recordings to music and movies that fill the room, iMac is an all-star for communications and content. The 27" iMac now features a 1080p FaceTime HD camera and a studio-quality three-mic array. And the T2 chip acts in concert with the speakers to enable variable EQ and an enhanced bass response, so all your content can have big, balanced high-fidelity sound.

Apple T2 Security Chip

The Apple T2 Security Chip comes to the 27" iMac, with a Secure Enclave coprocessor that provides the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. The T2 chip also enables powerful features like the 1080p FaceTime HD camera, face detection, enhanced speaker bass response, and "Hey Siri" - and makes transcoding HEVC video up to twice as fast as the previous generation.

Connectivity

Every iMac features two superfast Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) ports and four USB 3.0 Type-A ports, giving you plenty of high-performance options for connecting external drives, cameras, displays, and more. All iMac models come with a 1Gb Ethernet port, and now you can configure the 27" iMac with 10Gb Ethernet for up to 10 times the throughput of the previous generation. There is also Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.0, so you're instantly connected to your favorite content and wireless devices.

Apple Accessories

Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Keyboard pair perfectly with iMac and come included in the box. If you're looking for extra functionality, Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad and Magic Trackpad 2 offer some impressive options.

Yes, If you call in to place your order, B&H can install more RAM at the time of purchase before the unit ships out to you. Please note that it will take 1-3 days longer before the computer ships. Especially if the computer is not in stock.

I am not real computer literate,but was wondering why the 3.3ghz intel core i5 6 -core is more than the 3.8 ghz intel core i7 8-core. and which is better for editing photos and why?
Asked by: Philip
The i5 is actually $500 cheaper if you select all the same options as on the i7. You should see slightly better performance with the i7, but that depends entirely on which photo editing software you're using and what you're doing in it. Please feel free to contact us by phone or chat to determine which configuration would be best for you.
