    Is it known whether or not the new Fusion Drives have more than 24GB SSD implemented?
    Considering the exapandability of the new iMacs (up to 64GB RAM), 24GB SSD would be too limited for sleep / wake RAM cache...

    The 1 terabyte fusion Drive has 24 GB of SSD, whereas the 2 and 3 TB versions have 128 GB.

    That said, it's unclear to me how much of that space would actually be used to store the contents of system memory when the machine is hibernating.

    STAY AWAY from the 1TB fusion drive. I suffered with the 1TB fusion 5K iMac for a solid year before I couldn't stand it anymore. I upgraded to the 2TB model a month or so ago and it's MUCH quicker, which I assume comes from not having to offload anything to the HDD since 128GB is actually enough to run the OS entirely.

    Thank you.
    How much RAM does your iMac have?

    Upgraded to 32GB, still that is pathetic at that price should be 128GB. I have one game that is almost 32GB, fusion with 32GB should only be in base 21 imac...
