New iMacs 2011 Get Faster Processors

Just like what we have expected; Apple Inc. has announced the updated iMacs line for year 2011 earlier today with Quad-Core Intel Core i5 to i7 up to 3.4Ghz, AMD Radeon HD Graphic Processors, high-speed Thunderbolt I/O ports and the new High Definition FaceTime camera. It is 70% faster and has 3 times better graphics than the previous generation iMac.

iMac 2011 is the first desktop computer to include Thunderbolt I/O technology.

Words From Apple Inc:

The new iMac features quad-core Intel Core i5 processors with an option for customers to choose Core i7 processors up to 3.4 GHz. These next generation processors feature an integrated memory controller for an amazingly responsive experience and a powerful new media engine for high-performance video encoding and decoding. With new AMD Radeon HD graphics processors, the new iMac has the most powerful graphics ever in an all-in-one desktop.

iMac is the first desktop computer on the market to include groundbreaking Thunderbolt I/O technology. The 21.5-inch iMac has a single Thunderbolt port while the 27-inch model features two ports for even greater expansion. Developed by Intel with collaboration from Apple, Thunderbolt enables expandability never before possible on an all-in-one computer. Featuring two bi-directional channels with transfer speeds up to an amazing 10Gbps each, Thunderbolt delivers PCI Express directly to external high performance peripherals such as RAID arrays, and can support FireWire® and USB consumer devices, and Gigabit Ethernet networks via adapters. Thunderbolt also supports DisplayPort for high resolution displays and works with existing adapters for HDMI, DVI and VGA displays. Freely available for implementation on systems, cables and devices, Thunderbolt technology is expected to be widely adopted as a new standard for high performance I/O.

Key Features:

Processors – The most anticipated change in this new iMac line is the new quad core processors. With these new Core i5 / Core i7 processors, iMac is the fastest Mac ever built.

Graphics – Unlikeable but brilliantly remarkable change Apple has made is the all advance graphics. With AMD Radeon HD Graphic processors, users will experience stunning high definition graphic on the best display ever built in a desktop. Users will have better experience editing HD movies and even playing games on the new iMac.

Thunderbolt – This is highly expected as Apple has previously announced Thunderbolt technology in their updated 2011 Macbook Pro. It is 20 times faster than regular USB, and you can expect amazingly fast syncing time on the upcoming iPhone 5.
