5k iMac vs 2010 iMac – NovaBench Benchmark

Hey, today I took decided to run a little head to head benchmark on the 2010 i3 iMac vs. the 5k iMac running the Intel Core i5 and the M290x. The results were surprisingly close however the real world performance test shows how much faster the 5k iMac is compared to the 2010 iMac. I personally am really satisfied with my 2014 5k iMac and don’t plan on upgrading it anytime soon. The Screen its just beautiful to look at and when writing text looks super crisp and the colors of the retina screen are on point and better than what I have seen on most PC’s. There is a Rumor that the 8k iMac will come out later this year however that is still unconfirmed. For me personally iMac’s are the best computers, they’re simple and good looking and powerful enough to do things like video editing etc with the new M290x which does a really good job powering both the 5k Display in addition to the 2560×1440 second monitor I’m using.
