Beautiful on the surface. More powerful below it.
With new processors and advanced graphics, the new iMac is the fastest, most powerful iMac yet. It's fast enough to handle any modern Digital Audio Workstation software could you want to run.
New processor architecture.
Now all iMac models come standard with Intel Core processors built on a new architecture. Based on Intel's 32-nanometer process technology, these processors set new benchmarks for iMac performance.
Discrete graphics for everyone.
Every iMac includes powerful discrete graphics, meaning the graphics processor is separate from the CPU. So whether you're an amateur filmmaker or an avid gamer, iMac gives you faster, smoother, crisper graphics no matter which model you choose.
Built for more cores.
Mac OS X Snow Leopard is designed to take advantage of the advanced multicore processor architecture, so every Intel processor reaches its full potential on iMac.
Viewing and editing photos.
The new iMac is fast at importing photos and performing basic editing tasks — things like removing red-eye and erasing small blemishes — in iPhoto. And it delivers excellent performance for professional applications such as Aperture.
iMac makes quick work of work. Add plugins to your tracks in any D.A.W. Create complex transitions in a Keynote presentation. Add 3D charts to a Numbers spreadsheet. Design a beautiful document in Pages. Powerful Intel processors across the iMac line make iWork fast and responsive.
Shot some video you want to edit fast and share with friends? Large iMac displays and powerful processors are perfect for editing and stabilizing shaky video in iMovie. For more complex editing and encoding tasks, upgrade to the quad-core processor and get even faster performance with Final Cut Studio.
Games scream on iMac, thanks to advanced ATI graphics. The discrete ATI Radeon HD 4670 processor delivers faster performance compared to the integrated NVIDIA GeForce 9400M processor in the previous-generation iMac. That'll keep you on your game, even inside the complex 3D environments of Call of Duty 4 or EVE.
