Today, Apple unveiled the world’s highest resolution display with over 14-million pixels — the 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display ($2499+). The resolution reaches a whopping 5120 x 2880. That’s four times more pixels than the standard 27-inch iMac and 67 percent more pixels than a 4K display. It’s the perfect editing machine for photographers and videographers alike.
“Thirty years after the first Mac changed the world, the new iMac with Retina 5K display running OS X Yosemite is the most insanely great Mac we have ever made,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With a breathtaking 14.7 million pixel display, faster CPU and graphics, Fusion Drive, and Thunderbolt 2, it’s the most beautiful and powerful iMac ever.”
But the screen resolution isn’t the only thing the iMac Retina 5K is packing. It’s insides are just as impressive, starting with a 3.5 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.9 GHz. For the first time can be configured with a 4 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.4 GHz. Same for graphics, a base AMD Radeon R9 M290X graphics comes stock on all Retina 5K iMacs, with the option to upgrade to an AMD Radeon R9 M295X graphics card. As for hard drive space and memory, the base lineup comes with 8GB of memory and a 1TB Fusion Drive, but can be also configured with the option up to 32GB of memory and a 3TB Fusion Drive. In addition, iMac with Retina 5K display includes two Thunderbolt 2 ports that deliver up to 20Gbps each, twice the bandwidth of the previous generation.
