Yeah that's what im thinking, but I can't find anything official from Apple Confirming this.
Anyone got a link?
I am buying a new 27" iMac
Im seeing ALOT of mixed comments on the "Skylake" Processor situation / update.
Should I purchase one now? Or wait a few months for an update?
Any comments much appreciated.
"should be" ? where did you hear this? (not being rude).
I'd be buying the one with:
Pretty sure this would be fine.
- AMD Radeon R9 M390 with 2GB video memory
I'm not doing Video Editing or anything.
And probably minimal gaming.
yeah, think I'm going to go ahead, at the end of the day, Apple will always be 'updating' their hardware and products.
so waiting is pointless.
2.) The shift away from legacy USB 2.0/3.0 and Thunderbolt 1&2 ports (based on the miniDisplayPort connector) is happening this year. USB-C is taking over along with Thunderbolt 3 equipped USB-C ports.
On the Apple Website...
Is there anyway to figure the "Middle Option iMac" with the 4GB Raedon Video Card??
It seems only the Highest Spec iMac has the option to upgrade with the 4GB Raedon??
But I really don't need the 2TB Fusion Drive, 1TB is plenty as i have externals HD's too.
And the Processors are basically the same in comparison (Middle Option to Highest Option)
anyone know the reason for this^ ?
Looks like I'm just going ahead with the AMD Radeon R9 M390 with 2GB video memory
I don't know what you do on photoshop, but my past requirements on large panoramic stitching was a high amount of ram...you don't need to buy that from apple...and high cpu power while processing. The i7 might help, but it might not. The lower end video card is more than enough to handle your demand, so I would recommend this year's model. It's up to you to justify the cost of an upgraded CPU, and we're only talking a little bit of time cost (maybe a couple of hours across the life of the machine). In your shoes, i5 would be enough. If you did video encoding, I'd definitely go with an i7 at the least.Thanks yeah, i don't think i really need the 395 4GB Raedon Card.
I'm also just opting for the
Which i think should be fine for Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Muse and Lightroom.
- 3.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz
And the odd Blizzard Game.
A lot of Apple's attempt to keep a larger profit margins is by building a limited amount of parts. The mid model uses the M390 while top uses the 395 or 395X, which has different VRAM configurations. You can justify this by your level of graphics processing demand and graphics texture use demand. If you want to compare them, you can reference this link:
There is a learning curve to go with how this is used, but unless you're running really large graphics loading games, the 390 will do ok.
If you really want a high end graphics card, I would wait this cycle due to the die shrink and the control of the temp in regards to the voltage increase on the new nVidia and ATI cards. In real world, I think we could get up to 1.5x the performance of the equivalent cards due to this upgrade, but both companies are claiming closer to 2x. Again, this is only if you are a gamer, if not, the current models are excellent.
Me too! About to purchase the same model as you, except I'm upgrading to 16GB of Ram.I am buying a new 27" iMac
Any comments much appreciated.
