"iMac continues to be the example that proves how beautiful, fast and fun a desktop computer can be," said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "Inside its ultra-thin aluminum enclosure, the new iMac has the latest Intel processors, faster graphics, next generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi and faster PCIe flash storage."



This should keep some people happy

Just ordered myself the new 27" with the following configuration:

• 3.5GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
• 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2X4GB
• 1TB Fusion Drive
• NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4GB GDDR5

Dead excited!

That's like saying "I just bought a Ferrari! Can't wait to put a Hyundai engine in it!" :)

Not really.

And definitely not if one only wants a single computer in the house instead of having to build your own Windows rig (like many here including myself) for your hardcore gaming habit for those titles that still haven't been ported to OS X. It's certainly not the fault of Mac owners that game developers won't all get on the bandwagon.

I'd certainly enjoy seeing some benchmarks from that new rig when you get it.
Here's a Geekbench thread started early last year - link (http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/schwebs-lounge/237668-how-does-your-mac-stack-up-geekbench-thread.html).
