Apple rumored to debut 'larger-screened' iMac, powered by M3 chip
Apple will reportedly be launching a new lineup of iMac products in the near future, with rumors swirling on Apple using its next-gen M3 chip inside of a "future iMac" beginning in June 2022, now we have the very latest on what to expect from the new iMac.
The latest on the next-gen Apple iMac is that not only will it feature a "variation of the M3 chip" but the company is reportedly working on a "larger-screened iMac", a new iMac that is aimed at the "professional market" explains Mark Gurman in his latest "Power On" newsletter.
Gurman explains: "I also still believe that Apple is working on a larger-screened iMac aimed at the professional market. I'd imagine this will use a variation of the M3 chip, likely an M3 Pro and M3 Max. That would match the chips inside of the MacBook Pro. I don't think the combination of a Mac Studio or Mac mini plus an Apple Studio Display cuts it for many pro users who want more screen real estate".

Minisforum Neptune HX90G system: 2.6L case with Ryzen 9 6900HX APU
Minisforum hs shown off its new Neptune HX90G system, which fits a damn good PC into a teeny, tiny 2.8L chassis. Check it out:
The new Minisforum Neptune HX90G can be configured with three different CPUs: an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, AMD Ryzen 9 6800HX, or even an Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPU. Aside from the CPU, on the GPU side of things we have a discrete AMD Radeon RX 6650M GPU that is soldered onto the PCB and can't be replaced or upgraded.
Minisorum is using a huge heat sink that is installed to cover the APU + GPU, with 7 heat pipes in total -- 3 dedicated to the GPU -- with two fans to exhaust the heat. Minisforum says that the cooler can dissipate the heat without dropping the performance of the system while the CPU and GPU are operating at 100W.
