one can only wish, but I'm willing to bet money we wont see an iMac with desktop GPU. though it would have been amazingly cool.I doubt there's still be mobile GPU : time for a desktop one ! Especially if Apple gets rid of the optical drive as a lot of rumors are reporting ...
The TDP on desktop GPUs have been lower and lower the last few generations.one can only wish, but I'm willing to bet money we wont see an iMac with desktop CPU. though it would have been amazingly cool.
I don't know if we've had a thread dedicated to this, but I know I've written about it a few times.Should be nVidia GTX 650M or above. Hopefully we may find 680M at the top line.
But I thought we have several threads discussing this topic already.
Its really crazy how people think that the high end graphics card for the current Mac is useless for gaming just because it is mobile. I have a 27" 2011 iMac (just got it) with the 2gb VRAM and it will play minecraft with a 512x texture pack (makes most computers just stall and crash their minecraft) on max settings at 85fps no problem.speculations? what may we see as the gpu ? I been getting into gaming and I know the deal with macs/games, i doubt they would use a top of the line mobile gpu this time around?
Uhhh... It already has a desktop CPU. Where have you been???one can only wish, but I'm willing to bet money we wont see an iMac with desktop CPU. though it would have been amazingly cool.
No it isn't. I am very interested but I've yet to see any solid information. I asked a legitimate question and you don't like it for some reason. Why is that?This is the very definition of trolling. If you're not interested in 2012 iMac speculation, then just don't participate.
If a "2012" comes out this year, what makes you think there WILL be a 2013? It could be another 450 - 500 days between upgrades. The term "2012' or "2013" is meaningless. It's not like these are car model years. It's just a way to name a model, like "iPhone 3G", "iPhone 4s", "the new iPhone". The dates are meaningless and arbitrary, as they haven't been consistent over the past 4 years.I don't think I'd want a 2012 now this late in the year even if they did come out with one considering what next year is likely to bring - a much more dramatic set of upgrades including the GPU.
Low-profile desktop GPU maybe?I can't understand why people think a desktop GPU will be seen in the iMac.
It doesn't make any sense. Look at the form factor of a desktop GPU, then think about the inside of an iMac.
A desktop GPU is forever designed to be used in an ATX style case. It's design for cooling, mounting, video output, power connection, PCIe connection, etc., are all for a typical modular ATX style case. The end.
