New Kaby Lake iMacs arrive from Apple
At its WWDC keynote today, Apple announced that it is updating the iMac line with Intel’s Kaby Lake processors and will provide upgrades to displays, memory, storage, and I/O ports.
The new displays are 43 percent brighter than previous ones, with 500 nits and 10-bit dithering and the capability to reproduce 1 billion colors. New iMacs will be upgradeable to 64GB of RAM on 27-inch configurations and 32GB RAM on the 21.5-inch models.
Fusion drives—which include both SSD and spinning disk—will be standard on all new 27-inch configurations, and the SSD will be up to 50 percent faster, Apple said. The I/O upgrade involves two USB-C connectors that support Thunderbolt 3.
