As title, what do we think will be in the next iMac graphics chip wise? They were getting ok with the 6970m, hoping the new one will have enough omph for some good gaming?

I'd also be interested in this, fingers crossed it will be as I'd like a mac and also would like to play a few games on it.

Looking forward to the refresh announcement when it happens!

Getting okay? Look at it from the point of view that the 6970M was among the fastest of the mobile graphics cards at the time of the current iMac's release.

You'll get, pretty much, near top-end mobile graphics cards for the new iMac, at best. Desktop graphics cards won't be an option due to extra heat, power usage, and size. Likely a 7970M.
