2020 iMac To Be Powered By 10-Core Core i9-10910 and Radeon Pro 5300

This year’s WWDC Keynote didn’t showcase any redesigned 2020 iMac but Apple is expected to announce a new improved design of its aforementioned design beast soon. According to a new benchmark leak, Apple could use a custom part from Intel. Also, if Tipster is to be believed, Apple could announce the new 21.5 iMac soon. Interestingly they may decide not to use 125W TDP chip for controlling thermals this time.

A newly leaked Geekbench gives us a hint of 2020 iMac’s specifications including a Core i9-10910 with 20 threads, 10 cores, and a clock speed of 3.60 GHz. However, Intel’s website doesn’t list any such part of this spec with only one having Core i9-10910 running at 2.80GHz.

For now, we are aware that 2020 iMacs will be powered by 28W Intel’s 10th-Gen Comet Lake S CPU. Apple might introduce new screen sizes this year including a 24inch newly designed iMac and a more affordable 23 inch iMac. The other speculated hardware includes a Radeon Pro 5300 powered by 4GB VRAM, 1.65GHz core clock fused with Core i9-10910. Radeon Pro 5300 is unannounced yet and seems to be a desktop version of the Radeon Pro 5300m.

2020 will be an exciting year for iMac fans. We may see a major redesign with thin bezels similar to the Pro Display XDR.  The rumor mill so far has given us a glimpse of what’s coming next and we are super excited.
