Apple unveils a new graphical powerhouse

The most touted update to the iMac’s hardware design is the introduction of a Retina 5k display, which Apple claims will provide “the world’s highest resolution all-in-one display with a stunning 14.7 million pixels, 7 times more pixels than an HD display.” The Retina 5k display will be available for all three models of the 27 inch iMac, starting at $1,799.

More colours

Additionally, Apple says that this model of iMac will be able to display 25 more colours. To accommodate the improved colour scheme, Apple has made more changes under the hood to the iMac’s display. The new display technology has what Apple calls “red-green phosphor LEDs” to enhance the appearance of red and green on the display.
The additional colours are going to be a huge boon for graphic designers, video editors and photographers. Not only will there be more colours to choose from and create with, but also more colours can be displayed from photos taken by higher-powered cameras.

And more power

To take full-advantage of the 27 inch iMac’s display power, it’s processor has also been given a tune-up. The 27 inch iMac now ships “with sixth-generation Intel Core processors and the latest AMD high-performance graphics that deliver up to 3.7 teraflops of compute power,” according to Apple’s website.

Apple is shipping the new iMac to stores as of last week.
