Recently, Apple updated its 27-inch iMac on its website, which has not changed in appearance, mainly in performance upgrades, a full-scale upgrade to Intel’s 10th-generation Core processor, and a new generation of AMD Radeon Pro 5000 series graphics graphics cards. The camera was replaced with a 1080P, and the SSD SSD became standard and comes with a T2 security chip. Apple began shipping iMac orders earlier this week, and as new devices reach customers, manymedia have also released relevant reviews, sina digital for you to summarize the following.
Combined with a foreign perspective, the new iMac is ideal for working from home and highlights the upgraded 1080P camera, speakers and new microphone array.
The new 27-inch iMac.
A more versatile 5K display.
The new iMac features the same 5K display as previous generations, and Apple has a minor upgrade on the almost perfect screen, and while the new iMac retains the same resolution as before, Apple has added True Tone technology.
But the media on the original color display technology does not have too much parity, after all, this is not a new technology, has long been popular in other Apple product lines, but TechCrunch believes that this is a very good addition.
In addition to the original color display, the Nano-texture nano-textured glass panel, which was previously featured on the Pro Display XDR, is now also in the iMac product line. Nanoscale technology etches nanotextures onglass, reducing screen glass glare while maintaining excellent contrast and performing better picture quality.
Nano-textured glass panel.
Gizmodo talks about the experience of watching video. Gizmodo says there is absolutely no glare from any point of view, no matter what you’re watching or what the light is in the room, and even if the sun is directly onto the screen, there’s no glare.
Mashable says nano-textured glass gives the iMac an “updated look” and says it can be fingerprint-proof.
The Verge raises some questions, and The Verge argues that nano-textured glass panels are really great, but how exactly durability is still going to take time to test. It’s still a question mark whether it’s worth spending $500 on an upgrade.
Ten-generation Core and AMD Radeon 5000 series graphics cards.
In terms of performance, the new iMac has been upgraded to 10 generations of Core with a maximum turbo of 5GHz, almost at the same level as the Intel Core i9 9900 in the 9-generation Core. Up to 128GB of memory is optional, up to 8TB SSDs can be selected for storage, and graphics cards can be upgraded up to the AMD Radeon Pro 5700 XT 16G version.
The 27-inch iMac is fully upgraded to the 10-generation Core.
The media were very pleased with the performance of the new iMac, with Gizmodo getting a combination of the 8-core i7-Radeon Pro 5500 XT, and the new iMac’s single-core 6382 and multi-core 42417 in the Geekbench 4 test, which Gizmodo thought was a remarkable achievement.
With 32GB of ramandum and a version of the Radeon Pro 5700 XT graphics card, Mashable’s new iMac is too powerful for everyday use with almost no short boards.
Japanese website Macotakara runs points.
The Japanese website Macotakara has also released a review of the new iMac i5 plus Radeon Pro 5300 graphics card version.
According to Macotakara’s test data, the 3.1GHz i5 on the 2020 iMac is 20% higher than the 3.0GHz i5 running point for model year 2019. On gpu, the Radeon Pro 5300 has a 40% increase in running points compared to the previous generation of Radeon Pro 570X.
If upgrading the 10-generation Core processor and AMD5000 series graphics card is normal, then the new iMac full line standard SSD shows that Apple’s upgrade is still very sincere.
1080P camera and T2 security chip.
Apple also switched to the 1080P camera, the previous model is 720P, should be better in the dark light, it seems to be for the recent need for more video conferencing. The microphone has also been updated, and the new iMac comes with a three-microphone array. The new 27-inch iMac comes with an Apple T2 security chip, Apple’s second-generation custom chip. The storage controller in the T2 security chip provides instant data encryption for everything stored in the SSD, ensuring file and data security.
The 1080P camera is clearer.
According to TechCrunch, the camera’s clarity is high, “more than enough for the demand for conference calls” and performs better in the dark.
CNBC loves facial focus, which keeps your face in focus, even if it’s moved around the screen. If in a relatively dark environment. It’s important, for example, that when you’re on a cloudy day, you’re not embarrassed by the low light.
The Verge’s point is that if you open video conferencing regularly, the new 1080P camera does give you a better experience, but upgrading to the new iMac for the sake of the camera upgrade is certainly not a good deal. The Verge finally spits out, not just how clear the 1080P camera is, but how hard Apple’s other Mac products are.
Microphones and speakers.
Microphones have also been improved, apple has added room-quality microphone arrays to match higher-end cameras, while speakers benefit from the T2 chip for variable equalization for better sound balance, higher fidelity and deeper bass.
The microphone call is clear.
TechCrunch described the microphone as “clear and perfectfort for conference calls” and had the same assessment of speakers.
The speakers also meet roughly the same needs. They can be used to make conference calls, play audio, and even watch movies and listen to music. However, if it is a enthusiast, or with an external speaker better reliable, computer audio or more suitable for office use.
CNBC’s editors rated the iMac microphone highly after 90 minutes of continuous video calls. CNBC says the recording spent on the microphone sounds like it was from the studio. The previous iMac had two front microphones, but the new 27-inch iMac added a third rear microphone that dramatically reduces background noise. CNBC editors even used iMac to record their own singing and guitar, as they did in the studio.
Overall, the media evaluation of the new 27-inch iMac is still good, the kernel upgrade is still very significant, unfortunately the design did not change. The new 27-inch iMac is also more suitable for office use.
