Hey Everyone, Just posted a video on my channel comparing the late 2014 iMac with the new Late 2015 version. Tests include Cinebench, Geekbench 3, Unigine heaven, Final Cut X & Premeire Pro CC.

The results also include date from the these exact tests that I ran on my new MacPro (6core, D700gpu's)

2014 5k iMac Specs: (i7,256ssd,m295x,16GBram)
2015 5k iMac Specs: (i7,256ssd,m395x,16GBram)

I also have a video comparing CPU and GPU temps with these 2014 and 2015 iMacs.

I hope this will be helpful!

Very informative, thank you Max.

Would you be able to run some numbers on Avid Media Composer too? You can use the trial version for 30 days without paying for it.

I'm planning on replacing my Mac Pro 1 with either a fully loaded iMac or slightly upgraded new Mac Pro.
