It is the Chinese language technology information site Mydrivers who, thinking of telling us about the future performance of the new Ryzen 9 5950X, reveals that the latter seems to have been measured…under MacOS. An iMac Pro in 16 Ryzen 5950X could thus be in the tubes for the next few weeks.

If the source lingers to speak to us about the performances of the 5950X which would be here a version of pre-production (with a boost limited to 4.6Ghz), the true information would be that this processor would be integrated into the Apple range.

The performance of the processor would have been measured with Geekbench whose relative precision we all know. Apart from the fact that the mono-core performance is in strong increase compared to the same test on a 3950X, it is indeed the arrival of this processor at Apple which is a “small” event.

Last February, there were rumours of the arrival of AMD APUs on some Apple laptops. In fact, it seems that the global AMD solution (CPU + GPU) could be at the heart of the iMac Pro. The question now is whether this choice will be confirmed during a possible event in mid-November where Apple will present its iMacs powered by its “Apple Silicon” CPUs.

If Apple announces Macbooks in ARM and iMacs in AMD, then we can talk about a definitive break with Intel. AMD will be able to boast of having made a full success of this year 2020.
