In our tests, the 2.7GHz 21.5-inch iMac’s Iris Pro graphics put in a mixed performance. It ran Doom 3 at an impressive 172.8 frames per second compared to the 2.9GHz model's 222fps, and its 3D rendering capabilities tested using Cinebench's OpenGL benchmarks were also pretty close. When we tested the graphics using the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmarking tool, however, it only managed 9.7 frames per second, compared to the 19.1fps in the more powerful machine. It was a similar story using NovaBench; the Iris Pro iMac scored a mere 79, whereas the model featuring the GeForce GT 750M discrete GPU achieved 246. In the real world, this will make very little difference to your web surfing, emailing, and word processing, but if you want to play games at higher resolutions, including the native 1080p of the 21.5-inch iMac's screen, or do any other 3D work, we'd say you're definitely better off paying extra for the costlier version.

The 27-inch IMac Back and Front

The 3.2GHz 27-inch iMac proved incrementally faster than the 2.9GHz 21.5-inch model. Our Doom 3 frame rate benchmark took a modest step up to 232.6fps using all four cores, and its Cinebench score was around 6 percent faster. Comparing it to the similar model from as recent as the mid- 2010 upgrade, it was over 123 percent faster in the Cinebench multi-core CPU test, which goes to show how much the iMacs have increased in power over the last few years.

The iMacs have increased in power over the last few years

The late-2013 refresh sees the iMac range go from strength to strength, with great new processors, better graphics, and faster wireless networking when paired with an 802.11ac-capable router such as Apple's own AirPort Extreme. The 3.2GHz 27-inch model reviewed here is definitely worth the extra dough, especially since it's a bigger step up in value for the money compared to the previous generation, and because its processor is no longer identical to that of the more-expensive 21.5-inch model.

But we question whether the cheaper 21.5-inch model is an ideal value for money. Intel's new Iris Pro graphics are broadly an improvement over last year's models, but still struggle slightly against the newer dedicated GPUs. It's absolutely a very good computer in its own right, but if you're interested in games or other graphics-intensive tasks, the upgraded 2.9GHz model with Nvidia 750M graphics is the way to go.

The 2013 iMacs offer a solid update to Apple's most popular desktop computer. They're gorgeous to look at, and powerful, too.
