Apple Brings Kaby Lake To The iMac; Improves Display, RAM And More
Today’s a good day for iMac folks. It’s been two years since Appe last upgraded the lineup. Now, the company is finally showing its developer base some much needed love. At WWDC we get a significantly upgraded display for the iMac. Apple’s launched its desktop in two screen size variants, 21.5 and 27 inches. Displays for both of them see a massive improvement of 43% or 500 nits.
Configuration wise, the 21.5 inch will be able to support 32GB of RAM. Its larger brother, the 27 inch iMac will drive things up to 64GB. Apple also embraces USB Type-C on desktop with the iMacs. The pair get two Thunderbolt 3 ports. At the graphics end, for the 21.5 inch iMac, you’ll start with the Intel Iris Pro 640. Go higher, to 4K and you’ll be able to choose between the Radeon Pro 555 and 560.
