Apple's next desktop computer should arrive before the end of the year with killer specs. The iMac will have 64 GB of RAM and at least 2 TB SSD
The sides seem to have reversed. With the launch of the Surface Studio on October 26, 2016, Microsoft seems to have taken the place as an innovator in the desktop PC industry that was once the preserve of Apple. The Cupertino-based company, of course, is not standing idly by and is expected to launch an all-new iMac on the market in the second half of 2017.
According to rumors coming out of the United States and the Far East, Apple would have designed a supercomputer that strongly winks at computer graphics professionals and those looking for a supercomputer ready to perform any task. If the rumors were to correspond to the truth, buying the new iMac you would have in your hands one of the most powerful computers on the market - if not the most powerful ever, able both to "digest" complex photo editing operations or long video editing, but also to excel in the field of gaming. In short, Microsoft has thrown down the gauntlet and Apple has not hesitated to pick it up.
Features iMac 2017
The next Apple desktop computer, which should land on the market in the second half of 2017, will have a technical card of all respect. The technical specifications speak of an Intel Xeon E3-1285 v6 processor, AMD graphics, up to 64 gigabytes of RAM and hard drives of at least 2 terabytes SSD. This is joined by connectivity provided by Thunderbolt 3 and USB type-C connectors. The news, however, do not end there: AMD graphics, according to the usual well-informed, could ensure the next iMac compatibility with applications and software virtual reality and mixed reality and the ability to connect the computer to an external monitor with 8K resolution.
