Apple is said to be working on two new iMac models likely to launch in the second half of 2017.

According to MacRumors, the latest leaks came from a Taiwanese supply chain.

Latest speculations claim that the Cupertino-based tech giant is releasing server-grade "iMac" with Xeon CPU at the Q3 of 2017.

According to WCCFTech, "the advantage of having ECC RAM present in a computer is that it can detect and fix errors on its own, preventing crashes and data corruption as a result, which is also why they carry a very high price tag". Apple is also reportedly testing a new server-grade iMac intended for the high-end sector. Unfortunately, the wording of the Digitimes report does not make it clear if Apple would use a true desktop card, or merely a modern mobile GPU.

Quanta Computer is one of the long-time partners of Apple.

Apple has already announced that it will launch new iMacs later this year, including models aimed at pro users. DigiTimes reported back in November that Quanta was the sole manufacturer of MacBook Pro products and expected notebook shipments to remain strong all the way through the first few months of 2017. Storage in the pro version is expected to be up to 2TB of NVM Express PCI-e SSD. However, Apple will also be refreshing its consumer-grade iMacs as well. But both the consumer-grade and iMac Pro devices will have the same screen size options. The report also said the iMac might feature AMD graphics to support VR and pro apps, as well as Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C connectivity. The most recent claim is that the new iMac variants will come with a number of improvements, which hints of more powerful workstations for different types of users.
