"Today, out of the blue, a new rumor from Taiwan claims that Apple is planning to launch an e-sports-centric PC next year with a unit price of up to $ 5,000... which will be the first time that Apple has entered the e-sports PC field."

"According to supply chain sources, in addition to the high unit price of Apple ’s new gaming PC products, it may be a large-screen all-in-one (AIO) or a large-screen gaming laptop. Details are not clear at this time. It is expected to be announced at Apple's Global Developer Conference (WWDC) next June."

Well...okay then! 😉

Seems like an elaborate way of saying the fully re-designed iMac arrives late next year...

Worst rumour ever. 
defo not happening, but interesting to guess what could have inspired the rumours. 
a top end iMac with a Navi Gpu and true notion 120hz 5k display would be a beast of a machine which would also work for gaming. 
I should cancel my Mac mini order.

Ha, ha! 😅

I'm already shedding a tear for fans of the iMac's spinning hard drive... 😥

Just did some googling and reading, I imagine it’s a high refresh rate iMac, macos doesn’t have the gaming catalogue to warrant dedicated hardware. 
move actually cancelled my mini order, might build a cheap and dirty PC for gaming for a few months before buying whatever this is. 
I need more cores.

This rumour was originally posted by a tech website that is well known for posting clickbait and for trying to provide terrible investment tips that a tech site should not be providing to its young readership. I'm not going to provide a link to their article because they don't deserve the traffic.
