    The 27" top of the line iMac currently says that it has a Radeon HD 5750 1GB. Apple has been known to lie about the parts in this line of computers so my question is, is there really a 5750 in there or is it some mobility line card?
    Thanks

    Facts to support that claim?

    He's right.

    It's actually a downclocked Radeon 5850 Mobility.

    It's a wash with the 5750 though.

    I was looking for something more authoritative than just another claim from a poster.

    Yes, because I am one to just spout stuff off the top of my head. :rolleyes:

    Then don't just assume. Assumption is the mother of all fsck ups.

    And to answer your question Jimmy, it's not a lie. You'll get proper performance out of the 5750 just as Apple advertises.

    I didn't assume anything. That's why I wanted a more reliable source than a post from someone in a forum, especially someone without enough posting history to know if their word is reliable or not.

    Didn't think I needed to cite it. Lot of threads on here discussing the GPU in the 2010 i5/i7.

    Anyways, less arguing. He got his answer.

    Thanks, as long as I'm not paying for something that performs to a lesser degree than it is advertised to.
