New iMacs?

Apparently, there are new iMacs due soon, but I hear there are supply issues with the new processors??

Anyone know anything about this?

TIA.

Well no one really knows until Apple release the systems for sure. Processor wise The die shrunk iseries Intel processors came out that have a smidgen better performance and better integrated graphics by a large amount. For Imacs matters not much since they have dedicated Video cards. Perhaps they would release a lower end Imac with out?

There are also supposed to be kicking new MacPros, Maybe since those processors were finally updated. The existing top of the line was around 20K geekbench while the Imac top of the line was around 12k.

The new processors use less electricity.
Only Apple knows what other fairy dust they will sprinkle in the new machines
Better Video Cards?
Better Features?
