AMD releases 'Radeon Pro 500' Series graphics for iMac

Cupertino-based technology company Apple on Monday announced its three exciting iMac all-in-one desktop computers at the company's annual developer conference in San Jose, California. But the headline is the 21.5-inch iMac includes a 4K Display for $200 less than the previous generation. The upgraded variants of the iMac powerful desktop are created to offer improved performance.

As for pricing and availability, the new updated iMac models will be made available for order in the USA starting Monday via company's official online store, apple.com, and will be made available for purchase in the U.S. starting Wednesday via Apple Stores. All the 27-inch models now come with a Fusion Drive as standard, as does the top-end 21.5-inch version.

Apple said that the new iMac display is 43% brighter at 500 nits and with support for 1 billion colors.

The updated iMac features faster Kaby Lake processors up to 4.2GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz and supports up to twice the memory as the previous generation. You're still getting a very slim, nicely-built chassis with a high-resolution "Retina" display and a lone USB-C port.

USA chipmaker AMD on Tuesday unveiled a high performance, power-efficient "Radeon Pro 500" series graphics for Apple iMac. All of the new machines go on sale today.

The iMac Pro also supports up to 4TB of SSD and up to 128GB of ECC memory, and with four Thunderbolt 3 ports can connect to up to two high-performance RAID arrays and two 5K displays at the same time. Additionally, the new machines will come with an improved 1080p scale FaceTime Camera, Bluetooth 4.2 and UHS-II SDXC card slot. If you want an Apple laptop that's powerful enough to do heavier work, you'll have to look to the MacBook Pro. The iMac Pro is designed and architected especially for high-end professional creatives.

One minor yet significant update is also the signature Apple keyboard which now comes with a number pad (!) for the Excel junkies. The iMac delivers powerful performance for 3D graphics, video editing and gaming, and with macOS High Sierra coming this fall, iMac becomes a great platform for virtual reality content creation. The Radeon Pro 560 ups this to 16 compute units for 1,024 stream processors and up to 1.9 T/FLOPS of compute.
