Apple combines the high-res 5K visuals into its sleek 5mm thin 27″ iMac with Retina 5K Display. With a 5120 x 2880 native resolution, this iMac provides 14.7 million pixels, which is 7 times more than the standard HD display. The Retina 5K display also features a wider color gamut. Using a P3-based color gamut, the Retina 5K display provides a 25% larger color space than standard RGB displays. And with more available colors, the images will appear more vivid and reveal greater detail.
The iMac houses a quad-core 6th-gen Skylake Intel Core i5 processor. Its quad cores can reach a stock speed of 3.40GHz. It can also be overclocked up to 3.80GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 6th-gen Skylake Intel processor uses low voltage for better energy efficiency while still providing fast performance. Combined with 8GB of 1867 MHz DDR4 RAM, the iMac allows you to multitask quickly and efficiently. This iMac has an AMD Radeon Pro 570 dedicated Graphics with 4GB of GDDR5 vRAM memory.
The iMac with Retina 5K display maintains its 5mm profile, which is up to 40 percent less volume than the 2011 iMac. Using an advanced welding method called friction-stir welding, Apple was able to join the front and the back of the iMac together directly.
Transfer Large Files Fast
With USB 3.0, you can transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes. Every iMac comes with four USB 3.0 ports – with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 – and you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod or digital camera.
Apple Magic Keyboard
The redesigned Apple Magic Keyboard comes standard with your iMac. It’s wireless and rechargeable (so you won’t be replacing batteries), with an ultracompact, edge-to-edge design that wastes no surface space. It has full-size function keys and a lower profile that increases control and comfort. And it pairs immediately with your iMac right out of the box.
Expand the capabilities
Expand the capabilities of your Mac. Connect high-performance peripherals. Transfer data at high speed. Even daisy-chain multiple devices. And the iMac with Retina 5K display has Thunderbolt 2, delivering twice the bandwidth – up to 20 Gbps – for fast data transfers. While the Thunderbolt 2 ports double as mini DisplayPorts, the iMac with Retina 5K display cannot be used as a standalone monitor like its predecessor. It can, however, be used simultaneously with an external display and can output up to a 5120 x 2880 resolution.
