iMac 2017 Release Date, Specs And Updates: What We Know About The Next Apple Desktop So Far
Apple quashed rumors that it is giving up on its iMac line. The tech giant even signified that it will reveal an updated desktop real soon. In fact, a new iMac 2017 should be expected.
It's been quite a while, two years to be a bit more precise since Apple last released an iMac. During that period of inactivity, save for some upgrades here and there, the industry has seen a number of technological advancements that would favor the iMac line. That said, a number of rumors have since sprouted expressing what the iMac 2017 would be like.
The loudest rumor so far involves what's inside the upcoming iMac 2017. Initial rumors said that the Apple desktop will be powered by Intel's latest Kaby Lake processor. A short time after, new rumors speculating that AMD's own processor, the new Ryzen 7, will find its way in the iMacs. The latest rumor, however, is that the highest-end iMac will sport the Intel Xeon E3-1285 v6 processor. While this major feature has been juggling back and forth between Intel and AMD, one thing is for sure, Apple's next desktop will have the most powerful CPU available. The iMac 2017 is also rumored to come with 16GB up to 64GB of ECC RAM and a 2TB PCLe SSD.
Digital Trends cited a MacRumors report that Apple is highly likely looking for better graphics chips though the 21-inch iMac may still have onboard Iris or Iris Pro graphics. As for the higher-end 27-inch iMac, it will probably come with the latest AMD GPU. The possibility that the new Radeon graphics card with the latest Polaris architecture will be used for the next iMac is high.
As mentioned, Apple has already indicated that the new iMac will release later in the year. The company, however, has yet to give more specific details as to when the eagerly awaited desktop will be revealed. According to Macworld, sources have relayed to DigiTimes that the iMac 2017 will make its grand entrance in Q3. The high-end Xeon-enabled iMac will likely be released a little later.
