Security for virtualized datacentres

The new processor and graphics card provide very respectable performance, producing an overall score of 6436 in our PCMark Vantage results – well ahead of the 4594 achieved by the even pricier Vaio L13 that we reviewed recently (although, to be fair, the Vaio’s price does include a 24in touch-screen display).

Gaming and 3D performance is good too – I got 60fps when running Far Cry 2 at the iMac’s full 1920 x 1080 resolution, and at 1280 x 800 resolution (which suits my eyes better) the rate increased to 83fps. Apple has often cut corners on the iMac’s performance in the past, relying on its sheer good looks to win customers over, but the i3 processor and improved graphics mean that the consumer-oriented iMac is now punching at pro-level.
