Apple iMac Pro (2021) with 11th Gen Intel Core i7 SoC Spotted on Geekbench

Let’s take a look at the Apple iMac Pro (2021) specs, features and other leaked details.


Apple, earlier this year, unveiled the new M1 iMac. The new desktop computer from Apple got a design upgrade with a bigger screen and slightly thinner bezels. The 24-inch model also features Apple’s custom M1 chip, which is found on the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models as well. Rumours suggested that Apple will launch a new Pro version of its iMac later this year. There is no official word on the timeline as of now. Meanwhile, the iMac Pro 2021 has visited the Geekbench website. The variant listed on the benchmark website suggests that Apple could launch an Intel-based iMac Pro later this year. Let’s take a look at the Apple iMac Pro (2021) specs, features and other leaked details.

Apple iMac Pro (2021) Geekbench

Apple could launch the iMac Pro (2021) later this year. Ahead of the launch, the desktop has visited the Geekbench website. It reveals some interesting details about the upcoming Apple desktop. The listing, spotted by Laptop Under Budget, reveals that Apple could launch its Pro desktop with an 11th-Gen Intel Core i7 SoC. Apple, last year, said that it will complete the transition from Intel to its custom Apple Silicon within two years. Therefore, it should not be a surprise if we see new Mac models with Intel chips inside. 

The iMac Pro listed on Geekbench is powered by Core i7-11700K CPU, which was launched in Q1 2021. The 14nm chip has eight cores and can clock up to 5GHz with a base clock speed of 3.6GHz. The variant listed on Geekbench also features 32GB of RAM. It scored 1524 on single-core performance and 8804 on multi-core performance on the Geekbench 5 CPU test. The score is lower than the M1 MacBook Pro, which scored 1704 and 7393.

We can expect Apple to launch a Core i9 variant and possibly one with its custom silicon. It could also come with a bigger screen over the existing 27-inch model. Apple has not made any confirmation around the device’s launch. If not later this year, we can expect the iMac Pro to launch in early 2022.
