The GPU is up to 50 percent faster than the discrete graphics available on the previous 21.5-inch iMac.
The new 16-core neural engine offers up to 3x faster machine learning capabilities. As with all M1 powered Macs, you can run iPad and iPhone apps directly on your iMac.
A new 4.5K retina display
The 4.5K (4608*1152) resolution retina display has 500 nits of brightness and delivers 11.3 million pixels with over a billion colours. Apple claims that this the best display on an iMac yet making for a vibrant and detail rich viewing experience.
This new display also features True Tone technology, which automatically adjusts the colour temperature as the environment changes for a more natural viewing experience.
1080p FaceTime Camera
On top of the display is the new 1080p FaceTime HD camera that is paired with a studio-quality three-microphone array for clearer calls and voice recordings.
The mics have been positioned to reduce feedback and use directional beamforming to filter out background noise and amplify the users voice for better calling experience.
There is also a new six-speaker sound system, with two pairs of woofers side by side and a high performance tweeter. Apple says the new speaker system can produce "a massive sound stage with strong, articulate bass and crystal-clear mids and highs."
TouchID comes to the Mac with a new Magic Keyboard
The magic keyboard has gotten a facelift as well with aluminium enclosures that are colour-matched to the iMac. More importantly, it introduces TouchID to the iMac and uses a dedicated Secure Enclave within the M1 chip to keep user data private.
TouchID also enables fast user-switching or payments with Apple Pay.
Besides these, the iMac has support for up to 6K displays, WiFi 6, four USB-C ports out of which two are Thunderbolt for faster speeds and has a smaller power brick with an ethernet port to keep the desktop clutter free.
The 8-Core CPU, 7-Core GPU with 256GB of internal storage and 8GB unified memory costs Rs 1,19,900. It comes with a Magic Keyboard (without TouchID).
The 8-Core CPU, 8-Core GPU variant with 256GB of internal storage, 8GB unified memory, Gigabit Ethernet and Magic keyboard with TouchID will cost you Rs 1,39,900.
The top end variant with 8-Core CPU, 8-Core GPU, 512GB of internal storage, Gigabit Ethernet and Magic Keyboard with TouchID will set you back Rs 1,59,900.
