My late 2015 iMac 27” has a 4 GHz Core i7 processor, 32 GB RAM, and 3 TB Fusion drive.
What kind of speedup, if any, might I expect from a new, 2019, iMac 27” with the following configuration?
- 3.6 GHz Core i9 processor (8-core)
- 64GB RAM
- 3 TB Fusion drive
Although this new CPU has Turbo Boost up to 5 GHz, I’m concerned that the “default” of only 3.6 GHZ, being below my current 4 GHz, might impede perfornance.
Or do the additional cores make up for that difference? In fact, can the TeX binaries or TeXShop take advantage of those additional cores?
