Geekbench benchmarks for an unreleased iMac boasting a 10th-generation Core i9 Intel Comet Lake-S chip and an AMD Radeon Pro 5300 graphics card have surfaced.
The benchmarked machine boasts an Intel 3.6GHz Core i9-10910 chip with 10 CPU cores, 20 threads, a 20MB L3 cache, and 4.7GHz Turbo Boost. As Tom’s Hardware points out, the chip appears to be a higher clocked 95W Core i9-10900 that’s unique to the iMac.
According to the Geekbench submission, the Core i9-10910 runs with a 3.6 GHz base clock and 4.7 GHz boost clock. The clock speeds suggest that the Core i9-10910 is fundamentally a higher clocked Core i9-10900. Doing the math, the Core i9-10910 reportedly boasts a 28.6% higher base clock than the Core i9-10900.
Given the shared specifications, the Core i9-10910 should slot right in between the Core i9-10900K and Core i9-10910. The first is a 125W part, while the latter is a 65W chip. This means that the Core i9-10910 is likely a 95W processor.
The unreleased iMac’s graphic needs are met by an as of yet unannounced AMD Radeon Pro 5300 graphics card, which could be a desktop version of the Radeon Pro 5300M released last year.
Apple hasn’t announced a new iMac, and although rumors suggested a new iMac would debut at WWDC 2020, nothing appeared.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said he expects to see Apple refresh its existing Intel-based iMac in the third quarter of 2020, which means it should happen sometime during the July – September timeframe. Kuo did not specify whether the new model would feature a new design.
