Apple’s recent presentational event has unveiled a bunch of exclusive inventions, including 27-inch iMac with a revolutionary Retina 5 K display resolution. It is the first ever solution featuring 5120x2880 or 14.7 million pixels resolution that ensures the production of lifelike images, sharpest text appearance, and a detailed video performance.
According to Apple, such mind-boggling specifications make this all-in-one device a cherished goal for all customers who seek for a balance between high visual performance and convenient control. Therewith, this wondrous AIO might be already acquired at some $2.499.
Apple iMac Retina 5K is based on an oxide TFT panel that ensures a uniform brightness across the screen. TCON timing controller demonstrates a quadruple increase of bandwidth, whereas power-saving LED backlights and organic passivation provide for the reduction of power consumption by 30 percent. Contrast issues are efficiently solved by means of a dedicated photo alignment process; at the same time, the integrated compensation film makes black color deeper and other colors fuller. Besides, iMac AIOs feature color calibration tools.
The heart of a new iMac is a 4-core Intel Core i5 CPU, running at 3.5 GHz. In Turbo Boost mode it might be overclocked to 3.9 GHz frequency. Additionally, users might individually custom devices with Core i7 processors, operating at 4 GHz frequency (4.4 GHz in Turbo Boost). Visual presentation is realized due to a powerful AMD Radeon R9 M290X GPU. It should be mentioned that it is the first iMac that is equipped with 8 GB memory and 1 TB Fusion Drive. Still, it’s possible to custom models with 32 GB memory and 3 TB Fusion Drive storage.
High data transfer speed is backed by two Thunderbolt 2 ports. Each of them secures 20 Gb/sec speed, doubling up the bandwidth of the previous generation. All functional tasks are maintained by a new OS X Yosemite. It is a redesigned platform with innovative applications and tools for managing graphics facilities.
