For months there has been speculation about the imminent arrival of a new iMac 2020 model, and although Apple has not yet wanted to finish shedding light on the subject, this computer has just been filtered among the Geekbench specification sheets.
According to the information found by the tweeter beg meThis model would have been updated on the web just a week ago, on June 25, showing the presence of a macOS 10.15.5 operating system, which will surely end up updating to the recently presented mac OS 11.0; accompanied by unreleased Intel Core i9-10910, an AMD Radeon Pro 5300 GPU with 4GB of VRAM, and a 32GB DDR4 RAM configuration.
But without a doubt the great novelty comes with the appearance and first detail of this processor, which maintaining the same basic structure of the Intel Core i9-10900, with 10 CPU cores, 20 threads, and 20 MB of L3 cache; however it presents some 3.6 GHz clock speeds with a maximum frequency Turbo Boost up to 4.7 GHz. In this way, its nominal clock speeds are significantly higher than the i9-10900, limited to 2.90 GHz, but it would only offer an increase of 100 MHz with respect to its maximum speeds.
Something that, added to the fact that your TDP has a power of 95 W, higher than the 65 W of the i9-10900 but less than the 125 W of the i9-10900, would leave this new Intel Core i9-10910 framed somewhere in the middle.
However, the reasons for the use of this particular hardware do not seem to be completely clear yet, although seeing Apple’s current price line, it is most likely the search for a lower cost model. And is that earlier this month rumors began to emerge related to the launch of a new iMac 2020 redesigned and inspired by the new iPad Pro.
Likewise, given that this is the first appearance of this processor at the moment, its exclusivity with the Apple iMac 2020 may also still be pending, especially considering the imminent arrival of the new Ryzen 3000XT family of processors, dated for next week.
