It’s rather uncommon for companies to release major new products when one of the integral components is nearing the end of its life cycle, and given how long iMac users have been waiting for the Retina upgrade, one might have thought that Apple would hold out until the Broadwell chips were readily available before releasing such a machine.
As per a report by Jack March, the 5K Retina iMac will include a display boasting a resolution of 5120 x 2880. Apple is said to be configuring the UI elements of OS X Yosemite in compliance with this high-res panel, and if there’s any substance to the report, it’s likely that Apple’s fleet of Thunderbolt Displays will be treated to a similar upgrade in the near future.
So, while nothing is set in stone at the moment, we could be looking at a new Mac mini featuring 5K support, and a 27-inch iMac with a 5K display. There have been rumors that an improved Thunderbolt Display could manifest itself before the end of the year, and given that the new Mac mini and iMac are being touted for an October release, it’s reasonable to suggest that the Thunderbolt panel could also be a part of the deal.
With the enigmatic Retina MacBook Air said to be waiting on Broadwell, Apple will apparently stick with Haswell for the Retina iMac, although with the fully kitted-out model pushing a 4.0 GHz Core i7-4790K processor, it certainly won’t be too shabby in terms of raw power.
