Apple today announced its first Macs featuring Intel processors since its June WWDC stream publicly revealed the company’s plan to begin moving to its own Arm-powered Apple Silicon chips. This makes good on the company’s promise to continue releasing Intel Macs through the next two years as it transitions to Apple Silicon.
First among these new Intel-based Macs are the updated 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs, which comes with 6-core, 8-core, and 10-core 10th generation Intel processor options. The post also announced an updated 21.5 inch iMac Pro, which has options for Intel Xeon processors ranging from 10 cores to 18 cores.Comet Lake option is able to reach clock speeds of up to 5 GHz. But the processor is just one of a few updates on display here, as these new Macs will also come with “AMD’s latest RDNA” graphics, a free Big Sur upgrade later this Fall and several build improvements.Total War: Three Kingdoms performance. The new iMac Pro, which uses Radeon Pro Vega GPUs, also supposedly has “graphics performance up to 22 teraflops.”
