2019 iMac 5K: Coming for Review

See my recommended Macs for photographers and similar higher-end users.

Contact Lloyd for consulting on choosing and configuring a system, backup and fault tolerance, etc.

More about the 2019 iMac 5K.

On the way for testing is the 2019 iMac 5K. Due to travel, I expect to review it starting in late April. I am keenly interested to see how much faster it is than my 2015 iMac 5K.

Ordered with 8GB memory, I’ll be testing it with 64GB and 128GB of OWC memory.

Please buy your Macs at B&H Photo through the links on this site or diglloyd.com—it is B&H Photo that makes these reviews possible!

Because the Adobe Camera Raw Enhance Details feature uses the GPU intensively, I’ve selected the top-end configuration with the AMD Radeon Vega 48 GPU. See Adobe Camera Raw Enhance Details Feature: Integrated into my Workflow... How Much Does it Use the GPU?. Currently on the 2017 iMac 5K, it takes about 5.5 seconds per 45 megapixel raw file, and 22 seconds for a HighRes 187 megapixel file. Whether the Vega 48 GPU is worth the cost remains to be seen, but at this point, I advise it for photographers since the Enhance Details feature is the best raw conversion feature in years.

BUT buy with 8GB then upgrade the memory to 128GB
