    I've been using the maxed out iMac 5k along side last generation iMac 27" (also maxed out) and I believe I have anywhere from 20-30% faster render times in Adobe Media Encoder and I get an average of 40fps exporting from Davinci resolve (2.5k DNG to 1080p ProRes) compared to 26-27fps on the older imac. I believe it will perform faster for single threaded applications and a little worse multithread than the last gen Mac pro 8 core. Geekbench gave me around 15100 points on their score.

    Anyway, this is my experience with this machine.
    What is your HD setup. What is your workflow. Do you have a TB raid or just an external drive. I'm running everything off of the internal disk and I think it's a huge hit to performance. I'm trying to figure out what to move to raid, working files, render files.

      I'm editing off the internal drive (3tb Fusion). It's coming down to Adobe haven't optimised their software for the new iMac. I stayed up till 2am last night finishing off a project that's due this morning to find that media encoder has completely messed up warp stabiliser and rendered out a error message on all my footage which doesn't show up in Premiere. Also multicam is completely broken, it gets stuck on a frame after about 15mins and starts flickering until you restart the program.

      It's looking like I might have to go to Final Cut and re do these edits tonight


      Not sure if anyone is having the same problems as me, but if you are thinking of buying a retina iMac and you use Premiere, then maybe hold off until they fix these bugs.
