 04.05.2011   Apple rinnova la linea di iMac con nuove cpu Intel e gpu AMD

Con il comunicato stampa di seguito allegato, Apple ha annunciato il rinnovamento della linea di sistemi di tipo all-in-one iMac con l'adozione dei processori quad-core di classe Intel Core i5 e Intel Core i7 (con frequenza di clock massima pari a 3.4 GHz, ndr) di nuova generazione (si tratta delle cpu tipicamente indicate con il nome in codice di "Sandy Bridge", ndr).

Oltre ai chip di Intel, i nuovi iMac, che il produttore configura con il Sistema Operativo Mac OS X Snow Leopard, si fanno notare per l'equipaggiamento con le gpu AMD Radeon HD di ultima generazione, per il pieno supporto della tecnologia Thunderbolt di Intel (che gestisce il flusso dei dati in I/O) e per la nuova camera in HD per FaceTime.

Il prezzo della soluzione entry-point tra i nuovi iMac è pari a $1.199; in accordo ad Apple, i nuovi sistemi sono fino al 70% più veloci di quelli della generazione precedente. Dal punto di vista della elaborazione grafica, le performance sono fino a tre volte superiori.

L'iMac con display da 21.5-inch è disponibile in due configurazioni, una con cpu Intel Core i5 @2.5GHz, gpu AMD Radeon HD 6750M e HDD da 500GB (in questo caso l'MSRP è pari a $1.199) e una con cpu Intel Core i5 @2.7Ghz, gpu AMD Radeon HD 6770M e HDD da 1TB (MSRP pari a $1.499). Sono disponibili due modelli anche per l'iMac da 27-inch: il primo include una cpu Intel Core i5 @2.7Ghz, una gpu AMD Radeon HD 6770M e un HDD da 1TB (MSRP pari a $1.699), mentre il secondo è equipaggiato con una cpu Intel Core i5 @3.1Ghz, una gpu AMD Radeon HD 6970M e un HDD da 1TB (MSRP pari a $1.999).

Le configurazioni sono naturalmente personalizzabili dall'utente, che può ad esempio optare per una cpu di classe Intel Core i7, oppure per la memoria di massa in tecnologia SSD.

Apple today updated its signature all-in-one iMac with next generation quad-core processors, powerful new graphics, groundbreaking high-speed Thunderbolt I/O technology and a new FaceTime HD camera. Starting at $1,199, the new iMac is up to 70 percent faster and new graphics deliver up to three times the performance of the previous generation.*

“Our customers love the iMac’s aluminum enclosure, gorgeous display and all-in-one design,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “With next generation quad-core processors, powerful new graphics, Thunderbolt technology and a FaceTime HD camera, we've made the world’s best desktop even better.”

The new iMac features quad-core Intel Core i5 processors with an option for customers to choose Core i7 processors up to 3.4 GHz. These next generation processors feature an integrated memory controller for an amazingly responsive experience and a powerful new media engine for high-performance video encoding and decoding. With new AMD Radeon HD graphics processors, the new iMac has the most powerful graphics ever in an all-in-one desktop.

iMac is the first desktop computer on the market to include groundbreaking Thunderbolt I/O technology. The 21.5-inch iMac has a single Thunderbolt port while the 27-inch model features two ports for even greater expansion. Developed by Intel with collaboration from Apple, Thunderbolt enables expandability never before possible on an all-in-one computer. Featuring two bi-directional channels with transfer speeds up to an amazing 10Gbps each, Thunderbolt delivers PCI Express directly to external high performance peripherals such as RAID arrays, and can support FireWire and USB consumer devices, and Gigabit Ethernet networks via adapters. Thunderbolt also supports DisplayPort for high resolution displays and works with existing adapters for HDMI, DVI and VGA displays. Freely available for implementation on systems, cables and devices, Thunderbolt technology is expected to be widely adopted as a new standard for high performance I/O.

iMac includes a built-in FaceTime HD camera and Apple’s innovative FaceTime software for crisp, widescreen video calling the whole family can enjoy. The new camera supports high definition video calls between all FaceTime HD-enabled Macs and standard resolution calls with iPad 2, iPhone 4, the current generation iPod touch and other Intel-based Macs. The iMac continues to feature its signature aluminum and glass design, gorgeous IPS LED-backlit high resolution display, SD card slot and comes with Apple’s innovative Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad.

Continuing Apple’s commitment to the environment, Apple’s desktop line is a leader in green design. The iMac meets stringent Energy Star 5.2 requirements and achieves EPEAT Gold rating.** iMac features LED-backlit displays that are mercury-free and made with arsenic-free glass. iMac uses PVC-free components and cables, contains no brominated flame retardants, uses highly recyclable materials and features material-efficient system and packaging designs.

Every Mac comes with Mac OS X Snow Leopard, the world’s most advanced operating system, and iLife, Apple’s innovative suite of applications for creating and sharing great photos, movies and music. Snow Leopard builds on more than a decade of innovation and includes the Mac App Store℠ for finding great new apps for your Mac. iLife ’11 features iPhoto with stunning full screen views for browsing, editing and sharing photos; iMovie with powerful easy-to-use tools to transform home videos into fun theatrical trailers; and GarageBand with new ways to improve your playing and create great sounding songs.
