Apple gives its 27 inch iMac a few upgrades to compete with current hardware.

27 inch iMac

The 27 inch iMac is getting a hi-res 1080p webcam, 10th gen Intel CPUs and a T2 chip. SSDs has replaced traditional hard drives and offers Fusion Drive as an add-on.

The 2020 refresh will feature the iMac in 6 and 8-core models, with a 10-core option in the consumer range and up to 128GB of RAM. Solid state will be the default and customizable up to 8TB. With the T2 chip the desktop should be able to achieve higher read and write speeds.

As far as redesigns are concerned there’s nothing new to speak about. The bezels will be the same as its predecessors, with a True Tone upgrade for color balance. Buyers can choose to coat the display with nano-texture for an additional cost.

The new iMacs are available to buy now and start at $1799.
