“What’s new and improved about the iMac 5K?” rob-art morgan writes for Bare Feats. “Updated from the ‘Skylake’ to ‘Kaby Lake’ series, the top optional 7700K of the processor is the 4.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz). According to Geekbench Mac Benchmarks, the new top processor 5.6% faster on single-core test and 15% faster on multi-core test than the previous top iMac 5K with 4.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7-6700K.”

“Updated from 1867 MHz DDR3 to 2400MHz DDR4 memory in 8GB to 64GB configurations,” morgan writes. “There are four SO-DIMM slots that (remain) user accessible. So if you buy one with 8GB or 16GB config, you can always upgrade to the 32GB or 64GB config.”
