First iMac performance tests with Intel Core i5 and i7 processors

The inclusion of this processor family already promised a clear evolution in performance from the Core 2 Duo. And it hasn’t let you down. In several publications they have had access to the equipment and show captures with the results obtained in different tests.

And as they say in Macrumors, perhaps the most significant image is the one shown by Timon Roger. In it we see a comparison made to all current iMac models . Without a doubt, if the results are already good for all the processors, the performance increase of the i5 and i7 is 25% and almost 50% more than the Core 2 Duo .

If we add to that performance the generous screens, especially the 27″ one, and considering that for 2109 euros we have an iMac (Intel i7 at 2.8 Ghz, 8GB of Ram). Is the iMac a team for professionals? It sure is. And it’s a great value for a Mac Pro.

Meanwhile, if you want to compare the performance of your current team with these you can do it thanks to tests like Geekbench or Cinebench.
