2019 iMac performance ranges from 5% to 66% increase over previous models

March 29, 2019


Shared by Geekbench’s John Poole, the new benchmarks show the impressive gains of the Intel 8th and 9th-generation Coffee Lake chipsets. The benchmarks were naturally from Geekbench 4’s CPU and GPU tests.

The biggest boost in the new 2019 iMacs was the 27-inch Core i9 processor which has a multi-core score up 66 percent. The rest of the 27-inch 5K models had multi-core gains of between 43 percent and 49 percent and a range of 6 percent to 11 percent for single core.

Poole credits the increases in speed largely to higher frequencies and more cores rather than any significant change in Intel’s architecture.
