A possible 2020 Apple iMac refresh device has been discovered on Geekbench with some surprising components: An unknown Intel Core i9-10910 processor and an unannounced AMD Radeon Pro 5300 desktop GPU. There has been speculation before of an upcoming refreshed 27-inch iMac being configured with a fast Comet Lake Core i9 CPU.

Back in May there were reports of a potential Apple iMac refresh that would boast of featuring the powerful Intel Core i9-10900K as its CPU. A recently spotted Geekbench record shared by noted tipster _rogame has given some sort of validity to those reports, although the processor mentioned in the Geekbench listing is a novelty: the Intel Core i9-10910. Just as surprising is the presence of an AMD Radeon Pro 5300 GPU in this curious Apple computer.

Straightaway, there has been speculation that the Intel Core i9-10910, if recorded accurately on Geekbench, could be a special SKU produced solely for Apple. The benchmark entry states 10 cores and 20 threads with a base clock of 3.60 GHz, which puts this Comet Lake part way ahead of the already known i9-10900 in terms of base clock rate (3.6 GHz vs. 2.8 GHz). The reported boost clock of the unknown CPU was 4.7 GHz, with a presumed TDP of 95 W based on specifications and current Comet Lake parts.

The possible 2020 Apple iMac refresh computer also sports an AMD Radeon Pro 5300 GPU (4 GB VRAM, 1,650 MHz clock), which would be the desktop variant of the already known Radeon Pro 5300M mobile graphics processor. There’s also 32 GB RAM tagging along for the ride, although this is disappointingly listed as DDR4 @1,333 MHz. Now all Apple has to do is install a sufficient cooling solution onboard and make sure the all-in-one has a novel design to match its novel key components.
