    Hi all,

    I’m considering these two options:

    iMac 27 (Late 2012) - i5 3.2 Ivy Bridge - 8 GB - GTX 675MX 1GB - 768 SSD
    iMac 27 (Late 2013) - i5 3.2 Haswell - 8 GB - GT 755M 1GB - 1 TB Fusion Drive


    Which one should be faster?
    Is a Fusion Drive (PCIe) faster than a 768GB SSD (Sata) ??

    Is the difference real perceptive?

    Thanks

    I would say the video card/ssd bumps would outweigh the difference between processors.

    Get the late 2012 mac if they are the same price. The better graphics card, and pure SSD storage will be worth the slight slight trade off in cpu power. The 675MX is just so much better than the 755M...
