New iMacs overclocked, not next-gen


Apparently, the processors in the new iMacs released today by apple aren’t anything new. The iMacs are able to reach speeds of 3.06GHz because they are an overclocked version of chips from Intel’s current line. The mainboards are still based on the Santa Rosa chipset found in the previous iMacs. There was some speculation over whether the new iMacs were going to be the first machines to use Intel’s upcoming Centrino 2, Montevina, chips, which doesn’t seem to be the case. This is not the first time Apple has used overclocked chips in their computers.
