Primate Labs has posted benchmarks for the new 2019 iMac. Apple updated the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs with faster processors and graphics last week.

While there are no results yet for the 21.5-inch iMac with an i7 processor, the Geekbench scores for the i3 and i5 processors are up 5-10% in single-core performance and 10-50% in multi-core performance. Most of the increase is due to higher frequencies and higher core counts.

Benchmarks for the new 27-inch iMac are up 6-11% in single-core performance, 43-49% in multi-core performance for the 6-core models and 66% for the 8-core models. The 2019 iMac is now competitive with the iMac Pro. For example, the 8-core iMac achieved a 16% higher single-core score and a 10% lower multi-core score than the 10-core iMac Pro.

Primate Labs founder John Poole notes that the new 8-core 27-inch iMac provides a compelling alternative to the 8-core and 10-core iMac Pro but he doesn't believe the performance increase is enough to justify upgrading from a 2017 iMac.
