14.7 million pixels. And the power to do beautiful things with them.
iMac has always been about having a huge, immersive place to see and create amazing things. So making the best possible iMac meant making the best possible display. The 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display has four times as many pixels as the standard 27‑inch iMac display. So you experience unbelievable detail. On an unbelievable scale.
At such a scale, even the best existing technologies wouldn’t have made this iMac possible. So Apple did the impossible — developing a display with the performance to light up 14.7 million pixels, reducing energy consumption while maintaining our high standard for brightness, and advancing image quality for the most striking contrast ever. And Apple did it all without compromising the incredibly thin design, just 5 mm at its edge.
The most stunningly powerful iMac yet.
iMac with Retina 5K display doesn’t stop with an amazing screen. With a quad-core Intel Core processor available at up to 4.0GHz, the latest AMD graphics, an advanced Fusion Drive, and Thunderbolt 2, there’s a very powerful Mac behind all those pixels.
Performance right to the core.
YWith a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor at up to 3.5GHz — and up to 4.0GHz with the Intel Core i7 processor — this is the fastest iMac yet. And since OS X is designed to take advantage of each core, iMac captures every bit of performance from the processor.
Performance right to the core
Turbo Boost 2.0, which comes standard on iMac with Retina 5K display, gives you an automatic increase in speed when you’re using a processor-intensive application like Logic Pro or Final Cut Pro. And by shifting core frequency in small increments, Turbo Boost allows the processor to manage performance without sacrificing efficiency. All this takes place behind the scenes, so your work — and play — goes smoother and faster.
The latest AMD graphics.
All the pixels in the world won’t do you any good if you can’t quickly and efficiently command them into action. That’s why iMac with Retina 5K display features the latest AMD high-performance graphics — with up to 3.5 teraflops of graphics compute power. So you experience stunning motion graphics, jaw-dropping visual effects, and 3D graphics so true to life that you’ll feel like you’re part of the action.
OS X El Capitan. The world’s most advanced desktop operating system.
OS X is what makes a Mac a Mac. Not only is it designed to be intuitive and easy to use, but it’s also engineered to take full advantage of the Retina 5K display, so you’ll see everything on your desktop with stunning clarity. It features an incredible collection of apps you’ll use — and love — every day. And it’s designed to enable your Mac and iOS devices to work together in amazing ways.
Our best built-in apps. The best they’ve ever looked.
Every new Mac comes with Photos, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. So you can be creative with your photos, videos, music, documents, spreadsheets, and presentations right from the start. You also get great apps for email, surfing the web, sending texts, and making FaceTime calls — there’s even an app for finding new apps.
