    Yesterday I ran into my local Apple Store to check out the newest riMac, and I tried to run the HTML5 Fish Bowl test (http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/performance/fishbowl/) on that base model riMac (i5, m290).

    When set to 2000 fishes, fps drops to an average of 20 (remained at 16 for a lot of times).
    When set to 250 fishes, fps drops to an average of 30 (around 20+ for the most of the time).
    Comparing to the normal iMac 27', it seems that the normal iMac 27' beats the riMac in this test. It generally has higher fps.
    Comparing to my home PC, which has i3 3225/GTX 650 Ti, dual Dell 2412M, my PC starts to drop frames after 1000 fishes with a bunch of programs and Hearthstone running on background.

    I am not a hardcore tech guy, so I did not know how meaningful this is, but I just want to share this piece of information with you guys.

    I'm not sure how accurate is that test as i just tested on my 2013 rMBP is showing 30fps on 2000 fish and 60 fps on 1000 all the time.

    The new 5k iMac should be much more powerful.

    Thought so, looks like a decent upgrade over the 780m (unlike the old m290x)

    I love these "benchmarks" that MS came up with to try and prove how fast the latest IE's HTML5 performance is, since the previous versions had the honour of being the slowest browsers around.

    These sort of things are best ignored.

    I guess it's time for me to put my hand into my pocket.

    Hmmmm. Interesting.

    A late 2012 imac (i7 + 680MX) scores:

    Safari 8.0
    2000 fish = 46fps
    1750 fish = 60fps
    1500 fish = 60fps

    Chrome
    2000 fish = 60fps
    1750 fish = 60fps
    1500 fish = 60fps

    Firefox
    10 fish = 17fps
    100 fish = 10fps
    1000 fish = 6fps

    Bit of a problem with Firefox obviously!?!??!?

    btw if anyone is interested, i edited my local session page to accept 2500 and 3000 fishes.

    2500 fishes: 50FPS
    3000 fishes: 35FPS

    edit: tested it on base model.. i5, m290x, 8gb, fusion drive 1tb and it is still 60FPS at 2000 fishes? ran from safari.
