    In other words, what is the probable graphical performance of the 2017 low end 27" with a 570 compared to the top end 2015 27" iMac with a m395x?

    Look here:

    The m295x has 2048 stream processors (32 compute units) and is theoretically capable of 3.5 TFlops.
    which would place it at the 570 level.

    However:
    1 Are you satisfied with the max from two years ago?
    2 Will paying a premium for a better card now allow you do things that you wanted to do with a m295x , but couldn't?
    3 Finally, is it more "cost effective" to use a external GPU?
