New imacs…

M290X is radeon HD 7870 but at lower 900 mhz core clock. A bit slower than 780M you can find in current Imac.
and it comes with 2 gigs of vram, kidding?

M295X is some tonga chip, probably full tonga chip ( equal to 7970). Will be like one D700 of newMacPro.
4 gig vram here.

That’s too weak to play anything at 5K, they even will struggle at 2560×1440. Only for 1080p gaming.

    Seems like Apple still don’t give a craps ass about gamers.

    2 gigs is too enough to office work.

    Even powerfull PC desktop cards can’t drive games in ~15MP resolutions, keep in mind, that 1440p is only 3.6MP, so this mobile sector cards sure can’t.

    However very nice to see such display…

    Yeah, and after nvdia releases impressive 980m too that even support SLI and low power, apple does this?

    It seems, that iMac developing last for a several months and Nvidia released their 980M cards only this month.
