New iMac 2011 Changes: Graphics, Processor and Thunderbolt

Apple has now updated their iMac range, so what are the new iMac 2011 changes? In brief their have been upgrades to the graphics, processor, and also with the new Thunderbolt port. Earlier today we discussed the differences between the new and the outing going model, and we were shocked to learn that apart from all the updates, the price remained the same as the 2010 model.

So firstly we have the new CPUs, there is the Intel Core 5 as standard, but if you want something with more punch, then the Core i7 processors are just what you need, as it can be upgraded to the 3.4GHz version. The response from these processors is both fast and smooth, and works like a dream with the new graphics cards.

These new GPUs are the latest that AMD Radeon has to offer, with three models to choose from; AMD Radeon HD 6750M, 6770M and the 6970M. Never before has an iMac felt at home playing games. But for those who are into design, then the power of the GPU and the CPU working together will blow your mind.

Apple is always ones for firsts, and the 2011 iMac is no different. This is the first desktop to offer Thunderbolt I/O technology. When used with a compatible device transfer rates will be far greater than anything you have ever used before. However, this port can also be used for connecting HDMI and VGA.

FaceTime HD Camera is also another new feature, which makes video calling more of a dream than a nightmare thanks to its crisp clear image. There are more updates for the 2011 iMac, so visit Apple for more details.

Are the Apple iMac 2011 changes worth replacing your current mode forl?
