Howdy.
Typing this from a late 2013 MBPro Retina 15" / i7 @ 2.3GHz / 16GB Ram / 512 SSD / GT750M 2GB. Still a very fast & smooth machine, no fan unless i run some Heaven benchmarks :)

I waited for the 21.5 iMac 4K but turned out a disappointment, i see as a backwards step if i would get that over my MBPro. The 27" 5K Skylake refresh seems a different story. I'd like to ask you guys: how different?

I ran Cinebench and the Quad i5 3.3 GHz (in the AMD M395 model, 2TB fusion, etc.) has exactly the same score as my i7 in the MBPro, around 592 points give or take. So no CPU difference at all, at least in Cinebench.

Now, can someone with a M395 machine please post some benchmarks so we can compare? 1440 and 1080 resolutions, windowed please.

Other than the huge screen, i think the 5K does not bring much performance improvement over my current rig..so i'm still unsure if i should sell my MBPRO and get the iMac 5K. Thx for help and/or suggestions!

let me reply to own thread since i pulled the trigger on a M395 machine today.
Hope this comparison helps someone in the same situation i was....

For some reason, Cinebench reports the i5 as being 2C/4T?!? As in dual core, 4 threads????

I have basically the same results, I have the 395x though. How did you attach those screenshots anyway?

Do you have the i5? Does Cinebench report it as 2 Cores / 4 Threads?
