27-inch iMac to arrive next spring with a 120 Hz ProMotion display, mini LED backlights and M1 Max Silicon
Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) has weighed in on the rumoured 27-inch iMac upgrade. Writing on the DSCC website, Young states that Apple will release a new 27-inch iMac in spring 2022. Young refers to the device as the iMac Pro, with Apple using the 'Pro' moniker to distinguish the 27-inch iMac from the current 24-inch model.
Young adds that the 27-inch iMac will have, as its name suggests, a 27-inch display. Mirroring the MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16, Young claims that the 27-inch will rely on mini LED backlights. Apple will complement the improved peak brightness that mini LED backlights offer with a 120 Hz refresh rate, to be marketed as ProMotion technology.
Based on previous rumours, Apple will deliver the 27-inch iMac with M1 Max Silicon. Supposedly, the all-in-one machine will feature the full M1 Max die, theoretically providing support for up to 128 GB of RAM, along with double the CPU and GPU cores that the most powerful M1 Max currently offers. For reference, Max Tech refers to this as the M1 Max Duo.
