    Specs:
    3.4 Ghz i7 27 in iMac (2012), 3.4 Ghz i7 MacBook Pro (2015), iPad Pro (2014), iPhone 6+
    Probably not (I don't know actually), but you can upgrade the CPU in the Sawtooth for about $300. Google Mac CPU upgrades, you'll find some good stuff.

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    No it will not. The Sawtooth will take up to a DP500Mhz CPU from a Gigabit Ethernet, which is the last of the 100MHz system bus speed models. The only other option is a CPU upgrade such as aMercury Extreme or Powerlogix etc from OWC and the upgrade is not worth the money bearing in mind faster G5 machines.
