New iMacs feature a thin, high-resolution screenTo celebrate the Mac's 30th birthday, Apple gave it a refresh. VP Phil Schiller announced the iMac's new 5mm Retina 5K display, what they say is the world's highest resolution display.
[MUSIC] We are so excited to tell you about the all new iMac, with retina display. There has never been a desktop display like this. It is simply stunning. It's a 27 inch display that has 5,120 pixels by 2,880 pixels. If you're really fast with, you'll know that is an insane 14.7 meg, million pixels on one display. It is the world's highest resolution display. This is an incredible feat of engineering, we call it the Retina 5K display. So to put it in context, we all look at HD TVs all day, the 1920 by 1080, that's overlay those pixels. On top of the retina 5K display. There are seven times more pixels on the retina 5K display than are on your HDTV. [APPLAUSE] And let's compare that to the new standard 4K digital cinema. And there it is, 496 by 2160, the retina display still has 67 percent more pixels than that, it is stunning. What's more remarkable is the work the engineering team did to fit those 14.7 million pixels into our beautiful iMac design, it's just five millimeters thin. It's an incredible feat of engineering. It took at lot of invention. So if you look inside it, it has the fastest chips we've ever put in an iMac. It starts with a 3.5 gigahertz Intel quad-core i5, but upgradeable to 4 gigahertz i7, the fastest ever in an iMac. The graphics are a Radeon M929X. Upgradeable to a 295X. So how fast is that? The previous fastest chip in a iMac was 2.4 terraflops of compute power. Not bad. This is 3.5 terraflops, 45% faster than the previous version. I/O is faster as well. It is now Thunderbolt 2, 20 megabit per second bandwidth purport. It's faster storage, standard turbite fusion drive. And it's all built together like all of our products, in the most environmentally friendly manner, including supporting the latest Energy Star 6.1. So it's a very efficient desktop product. So what does this amazing, state of the art new iMac cost? Well, let's, let's make a comparison. If you've ever tried to buy a, a high end display, for example, a new 4K IPF, TFT display, not quite as many pixels as the I, the iMac, not quite as beautiful a display, but still not bad. You know that these range in the price of $3000 or more. So, that's why we're really excited to tell you, the new iMac with Retina 5k display is gonna cost $2499. [APPLAUSE]. [MUSIC].
