Hi !

I am looking into updating my computer (Mac) and I would like to make a good investment so that it would also allow me to edit smoothly. I thought you would be the right person to ask for advice, so I am wondering if you could help me understand wether I should choose to have better RAM or better GPU.

The question is what would you choose between this 2 setups:

OPTION A: iMac 21,5 inch - retina 4k

- 3,6‑GHz quad‑core Intel Core i7-processor van de 7e generatie, Turbo Boost tot 4,2 GHz

  • - 32 GB 2400‑MHz DDR4
    - SSD van 512 GB
    - Radeon Pro 560 met 4 GB videogeheugen

OPTION B: iMac 27 inch - retina 5k

  • - 4,2‑GHz quad‑core Intel Core i7-processor van de 7e generatie, Turbo Boost tot 4,5 GHz
    - 16 GB 2400‑MHz DDR
    - SSD van 512 GB
    - Radeon Pro 580 met 8 GB geheugen

Any advice would be lovely.

Thanks a lot in advanced!!

Merry christmas!!!

Hi Carolina

At this point in time the faster the processor and the more RAM the better.

Even though the 3.6Ghz has more RAM the 4.2 has a better GPU and a far superior GPU.

The 4.2Ghz machine is a better bet all round. Go for it you won't regret it

They’re both great machines for video editing.

Unless you’re really tight on desktop space, I’d go with the 27-inch iMac Retina 5k.  In addition to what Mo mentioned about processor speed and graphics performance, it’s also one of a short list of Apple computers that allow you to upgrade the RAM later.   Install memory in an iMac - Apple Support
