See what you can do. When you can see everything.
The 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display is a Mac through and through - with powerful technologies, incredible performance, the world's most advanced desktop operating system, and amazing built-in apps. And with a remarkable 5120 x 2880 resolution, you'll experience everything on your display like never before.
A more advanced timing controller.
The timing controller, or "TCON," is the brains of the display - it tells each pixel what to do and when to do it. Because iMac with Retina 5K display has four times as many pixels as the standard 27-inch iMac display, the TCON had to be able to handle more information than ever. But even the most powerful timing controllers available couldn't manage this number of pixels, so we had to create a new one with four times the bandwidth of the previous-generation 27-inch iMac - up to 40 Gbps. Now a single supercharged chip beautifully orchestrates the symphony of all 14.7 million pixels.
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 the new 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.
Thunderbolt 2. Twice as fast. Just as versatile.
The ultimate all-in-one demands the most advanced I/O technology. Each tiny Thunderbolt port lets you expand the capabilities of your Mac. Connect high-performance peripherals. Transfer data at high speed. Even daisy-chain multiple devices. And the new iMac with Retina 5K display has Thunderbolt 2, delivering twice the bandwidth - up to 20 Gbps - for the fastest data transfers yet.
802.11ac Wi-Fi. The next generation of wireless.
With three-stream 802.11ac technology, iMac takes desktop Wi-Fi speeds over the top. When it's connected to an 802.11ac base station - including the new AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule - you can reach data rates of up to 1.3 Gbps.2 That's triple the previous 802.11n standard, which means you'll get up to three times faster Wi-Fi.3 You also get double the channel bandwidth, with 80MHz-wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever.
Fourth-generation Intel Core processors.
This is the most powerful iMac yet. A fourth-generation quad-core 3.5GHz Intel Core i5 processor is standard on iMac with Retina 5K display. And since OS X is designed to take advantage of each core, iMac captures every bit of performance from the processor. Turbo Boost 2.0, which comes standard on the new 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.
Fusion Drive. High capacity. In a flash.
Fusion Drive is a breakthrough concept that combines the high storage capacity of a traditional hard drive with the high performance of flash storage. With Fusion Drive in your iMac with Retina 5K display, disk-intensive tasks - from booting up to launching apps to importing high-definition photos and video - are faster and more efficient. That's because frequently used items are kept at the ready on speedy flash storage, while infrequently accessed items go to the hard drive. The file transfers take place in the background, so you won't even notice.
