AMD releases 'Radeon Pro 500' Series graphics for iMac

Apple updated both the iMac and MacBook Pro product lines with a bunch of new internal features. All this processing power jargon will ensure users can run advanced graphics editing, virtual reality content creation and real-time 3D rendering at their fingertips. All now come armed with an Intel Kaby Lake Core i7 processor where the configurations vary.

It might look the same between the identical chassis and screen, but Apple has seriously upgraded the storage, added twice the maximum memory capacity and introduced 7th generation (Kaby Lake) Intel processors with this refresh.

Prices will start at £1,050 for the base 21.5-inch model, at £1,250 for the 4K 21.5-inch model, and at £1,750 for the iMac Retina 5K 27-inch model. Three USB-C connectors have been added to the back, giving users Thunderbolt 3 speeds to hook up multiple peripherals.

U.S. chipmaker AMD on Tuesday unveiled a high performance, power-efficient "Radeon Pro 500" series graphics for Apple iMac.

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

Developers got treated to a new lineup of Macs today at WWDC 2017, including a sneak peek at a "seriously badass" iMac Pro coming later this year.

This likely means that these Core i5 and i7 chips are actually Core i5-Y and i7-Y CPUs that launched with the Kaby Lake generation, meant to succeed the previous Intel Core m parts while maintaining much of the same power profile as before. The iMac Retina 4K 21.5-inch, meanwhile, will have a Radeon Pro 555 or 560 and up to 4GB VRAM.

'It is incredibly satisfying to see the capabilities of Radeon Pro 500 series in elegant form factors and enabling awesome content creation, gaming and VR experiences, ' crowed Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect of the Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. SSD storage options are now up to 50 percent faster, and iMac comes with Thunderbolt 3, the most powerful and versatile port ever. For the first time ever on a Mac, iMac Pro features 10Gb Ethernet for up to 10 times faster networking.
