    I hope this is a sign that it gets released this month.

    Only 7% faster than current i7 model, so no big deal.

    In some ways your right. The question is what other changes will the next iMac have. Taken individually each change is likely to be meh. Taken together, they might be quite worthwhile.

    The fact that the benchmark is Mavericks, it may not be released until Mavericks is released. Also Apple could be waiting on some of the Haswell processors that won't be released until September.

    are you sure this isnt the late 2012 imac?
    i think is the 27"late 2012 imac with 16 GB RAM and mavericks

    Processor shown in the geekbench benchmark is a haswell processor, so unless it somehow picked it up wrong its definitely not a late 2012 imac.

    Seems unlikely that Apple would be using the "K" line of Haswell processors, though. I remain skeptical.

    Yeah, I've seen these 3 about week ago, in similar "Oh, new iMacs appeared in geekbench" thread.
    BootROM model info doesn't match model identifier from ASP, 0 MHz RAM speed is another evidence.

    It's the same every year. Apple has to run through the back-to-school promotions before anything new gets released. Look for it in late October or early November.

    Or 4% in fact. My 2012 i7 scores 13127

    http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/2219948

    Plus the fact, I am not sure the benchmark is genuine. Does anyone actually think the next iMac will have a K processor? I do not.

    4770K? Since when does OSX enable and utilize unlocked multipliers?

    thanks sza!

    to put numbers in perspective you can compare the results to the 2012 i7

    http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/95162

    i7 Single-Core Score
    2012: 3126
    2013: 3834 (performance +22.6% )

    i7 Multi-Core Score
    2012: 12177
    2013: 14368 (performance +17.9% )

    So the new iMac is roughly 20% faster than the last 2012 model - sounds good to me :)

    Yes you are correct...nice, so only the high end i7 model and high end i5 model gets some boost, the rest are slightly 5%

    Actually it should be only 5% faster. You compared the result of running as 64bit vs 32bit.

    I just tested my system (2012 iMac 3.4GHZ i7)

    Scored 14267 vs 14368

    Safe to say 2012 iMac is an awesome machine........

    Till there's a successor to the Core i series that offers the leap in performance the I series did over the core 2 series, there's never going to be 100%+ improvements because throwing extra cores in or hyper threading is the only thing that's added big leaps from Core 2 Duo to i5 to i7. Till there's an i7 with performance on a par with the current top end Mac Pro, it's just going to be token increases in the low 1 or 2 figure percentage range. Increases in GPU performance have no impact on CPU scores.
