The bad news: iMacs (2020) may still get Intel processors and the old design
If you were hoping that Apple would decide to install a new generation of iMacs, planned for this year, Apple Silicon processors, the following lines will probably disappoint you slightly. The benchmark test, which captures a previously unreleased iMac with a new processor from Intel's workshop, has leaked to the Internet. At least according to its features, it seems to be the successor to the top chip of the iMacs 2019, and it is therefore likely that Apple will use it as the highest configuration for the new iMacs.

The chipset, which is powered by the previously unveiled iMac from Geekbench, comes specifically from the Comet Lake-S family. This is the 10th generation Intel Core i9 with 10 cores, 20 threads, 20 MB of L3 cache and 4.7 GHz Turbo Bostem. As for the graphics card, the tested iMac was equipped with the AMD Radeon Pro 5300. Thanks to these specifications, the new iMac should be about a third more powerful in the most powerful version compared to last year's most powerful version, which is a relatively big step forward.
Although it's hard to say when we can look forward to the next generation of iMacs, given that Apple may be replacing Intel processors again, it might not be too long. The deployment of "intellectual" processors would probably mean that the product will not receive a major design upgrade this year either, because even a processor upgrade could not be described as anything big. It is therefore possible that this year we will see another silent introduction of the same-looking iMacs through a press release, with the fact that the machines with the new design will not arrive until next year with the Apple Silicon. Apple may theoretically deploy the new design this year, but given that it will most likely be able to adapt it directly to its processors due to its excellent thermal properties, this seems quite remote. But who knows, maybe we are looking at a benchmark of a machine that the world should never see and is only testing.
