Apple Unveils New iPad Models

iMac 2017 iteration has been subject to a lot of speculations  for a long time. However, in spite of numerous reports claiming that Apple is unlikely to launch a new iMac, the tech giant has already announced that an update is coming in the near future.

iMac 2017 Will Be A Premium Desktop And For Higher-End Users

Aside from being geared as a premium desktop, the new iMac 2017 will also cater to higher-end users by having server-grade internal components like ECC RAM, which is designed to monitor the single-bit memory errors. Incidentally, among the primary reasons for these errors is the cosmic rays, including the radioactive decay and electrical interference that become issue to those dealing with sensitive files like scientific data and financial records among others.

iMac 2017, meantime, will be equipped with an Intel Xeon E3-1285 v6 processor, paired with 16-64GB of ECC RAM, including a 2 TB PCIe SSD. The 21-inch device is also expected to keep onboard Iris or Iris Pro graphics. Meanwhile, reports suggest that the desktop's main rival may likely be the recently launched Microsoft Surface Studio.

On the other hand, the upcoming 27-inch iMacs will be packed with high-end AMD graphics cards, while the new Radeon GPUs boast of AMD's latest Polaris architecture, which means the consumers may get a lot more for their money. Additionally, the new iMac 2017 is also said to be powered by Intel's 7th-gen Kaby Lake processors, Mac Rumors reported.

iMac 2017 Likely Releases Later This Year

iMac 2017 release dated has been rumored to be set in the second half of 2017. In fact, further reports suggest that Apple's latest desktop will be released during the 3rd quarter of this year, with two versions of iMacs reportedly geared to be launched. As the PC desktop industry seems to lose its market and the laptop business is seen to have an increasing demand, the release of iMac 2017 is expected to get the attention of tech enthusiasts across the globe, Tapscape reported.
