The big announcement came last August 4, 2020. The updates do not include design changes to the chassis and an Apple Silicon as the processor. Senior director of Mac and iPad Product Marketing, Tom Boger, touts it as the "ultimate desktop to work, create, and communicate".

The 27 inch iMac now also features a completely flash-based storage system.

The 27-inch iMac now comes with the latest 6- and 8-core 10th generation Core i9-10900K processor.

There is also a configuration with 3.3GHz 6-core 10th-generation Intel Core i5 processor that can Turbo Boost up to 4.8GHz. That's up to 65 percent improvement in CPU performance. Instead, the iMac is even more powerful and capable now through changes in the components used.

When compared to the previous-generation 27-inch iMac with Radeon Pro Vega 48 graphics, the new iMac delivers: Up to 55 percent faster rendering in Maxon Cinema 4D ProRender and up to 30 percent faster timeline rendering in Final Cut Pro X.

With this close to top model, I had the option to send out an 11-moment 4K video with numerous soundtracks and layers of video in five and a half minutes.

The 27-inch iMac is now fitted with SSD drive, so it now delivers an amazingly fast performance of up to 3.4GB/s. The storage can is configurable up to a 1TB SSD option. It encrypts the storage and also checks the software during the boost process. They also boast a new front-facing camera and display with True Tone and nano texture support. It automatically adjusts color temperature to the ambient lighting.

The nano texture is an extra option that adds $500 but it's really great especially for brightly lit rooms. It was first introduced on Pro Display XDR.

The camera has been upgraded to the iMac Pro 1080 lens. Apart from security, the T2 chip helps in tone mapping, exposure control, and face detection on the upgraded 1080p webcam. It also provides higher fidelity and deeper bass to the speakers, enabling users to experience high-quality audio during podcast recordings, FaceTime calls, and more. The 21.5 inch iMac will now come standard with SSDs across the line. However, there is an option to configure the 21.5-inch iMac with a Fusion Drive.

Now you could possibly get 10th generation Intel Core i 9 processors up to 10 Core processors. The iMac Pro also features graphics performance of up to 22 teraflops and up to 256GB quad-channel ECC memory.

Earlier this week Apple quietly unveiled a refreshed 27-inch iMac, and although it wasn't the major redesign that had previously been rumoured, it's still a pretty nice update to a system that's been mostly neglected for the past few years.
