Several rumours indicate that
new iMac models may be on the way, and not just the ARM-based iMac with a
new design we’ve heard so much about. Updated models of the current iMac with Intel processors could be in the pipeline too.
On Wednesday, a previously unknown iMac model appeared in the Geekbench testing benchmark’s public results. It’s an iMac with a tenth-generation Intel Core i9-10910, discovered by
Tom’s Hardware, which thinks it’s a processor tailored by Intel to Apple’s wishes.
Intel launched its tenth-generation Comet Lake S processors last April, but this model differs from its siblings in having slightly higher clock speeds: 3.6GHz base clock and 4.7GHz Turbo Boost. Power is rated at 95W, sitting neatly between Intel’s existing 65W and 125W models.
There is no release date for this potential iMac update, but several times in the past Apple has released updated Mac models without waiting for a major launch event.
