Benchmarks for an unreleased iMac have leaked on the Geekbench website.
Despite Apple announcing the introduction of Silicon-based Macs from the end of this year, it has been widely reported that the company will release another Intel-based iMac in 2020, and now information on this device has leaked on the benchmark reporting website.
As spotted by @_rogame on Twitter, the new benchmarks show off an unreleased iMac with an Intel Core i9-10910 processor. It’s important to note that benchmarks aren’t always the most reliable, but if they are legitimate, it’s the biggest hint yet at a refreshed iMac range.

The leak shows an Intel-based Mac with a 10-core CPU and 20 threads and 20MB of L3 cache, running with a 3.6GHz base clock and a 4.7GHz boost clock. When you compare these statistics to the current Core i9-10900, the new model has a 30% higher base clock.
The benchmarks also suggest that the unreleased iMac comes with an AMD Radeon Pro 5300 graphics card, which has a maximum clock speed of 1650MHz. It’s likely that this card – which hasn’t been publicly released – is a desktop version of the AMD Radeon Pro 5300M chip, which Apple included in its latest 16-inch MacBook Pro announced late last year.
Other features in the Geekbench report include 32GB of memory.
We don’t know exactly when the new iMac will launch, but it has been reported that Apple will adopt a new design language for this year’s release, sporting the iPad Pro design language.
That means slimmer bezels, a T2 chip, and an AMD Navi GPU, which will give consumers a real incentive to upgrade. Reliable insider Ming-Chi Kuo has previously suggested that the 21.5-inch iMac would be the first model to receive a refresh.
