Apple today has unveiled an all-new iMac updated with up to 8-core Intel 9th generation processors for the first time and powerful Vega graphics options. The iMac was last updated in June 2017 and this comes after the company debuted an all-new 10.5-inch iPad Air and iPad mini, both equipped with an A12 Bionic chip and Apple Pencil support.

Design-wise, the new iMac maintains the same sleek all-in-one design with its thin-edge display and aluminum and glass profile. However, the internal upgrades provides a boost in performance, combined with its gorgeous 4K and 5K Retina displays that boasts 14.7 million pixels, 1 billion colors, 500 nits of brightness and impeccable picture quality in any viewing angle.

The 21.5-inch iMac is now equipped with an 8th-generation quad-core, and for the first time 6-core Intel processors, which the company says delivers "up to 60 percent faster performance," while the addition of Radeon Pro Vega graphics provide "80 percent faster graphics performance."

Meanwhile, the 27-inch iMac boasts 9th-generation 6-core and 8-core Intel processors that deliver up to "2.4 times faster performance" and the new Radeon Pro Vega graphics chip offering up to "50 percent faster graphics performance."

Pricing for the new 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display starts at $1,299, while the 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display retails for $1,799. You can purchase both options on Apple's website and at the Apple Store app now. Availability in Apple stores and authorized retailers begin next week.
