Before that, 720p webcams were installed in Mac computers.
Apple has introduced an update to the 27-inch iMac with a 1080p webcam instead of the 720p found in MacBooks. The top-of-the-line all-in-one is equipped with 10th Gen Intel Comet Lake processors with the ability to choose a version up to 10 cores for the first time in iMac history. In addition, all versions of the 27-inch model are now available by default with built-in 256GB SSD instead of the HDD + SSD hybrid Fusion Drive.
If desired, users can still choose the version with Fusion Drive, and if they need more memory, purchase the version with an 8TB SSD. Apple claims the iMac has super-fast SSDs with read / write speeds up to 3.4Gbps.
In the base model, the 27-inch iMac will be available with 6th or 8th Gen Intel processors with the option of a 10-core i9 up to 5GHz. The all-in-one got AMD Radeon 5300 or 5500XT graphics by default, and 5700XT with 16GB of video memory as an upgrade.
The new iMac also supports up to 128GB of DDR4 RAM. Other options available for purchase include models with a 10-gigabit Ethernet port, SD card reader and a “nano-textured” version of the screen with less reflective glass – for this option you will have to pay an additional $ 500.
The monoblock also received Apple’s own T2 coprocessor for the first time. He is responsible for the security of data on the device, and, for example, provides data encryption on the SSD on the fly.
The chip also allows you to improve the image from the webcam: adjust the tone, exposure and is responsible for face recognition in the frame. Apple says the improvements will work in third-party video calling apps in the same way as FaceTime. Thanks to the T2, the “Hey Siri” function works, the chip is responsible for audio, including improving bass and clarity at low volume and allowing the TrueTone display function.
The new 27-inch iMac can be ordered in Pakistan from August 4 at a price of 385,358.04 Pakistani Rupee. In the maximum configuration, it will cost 1,997,061.37 Pakistani Rupee.
