There is no other way to increase your graphics power in an iMac that I know without doing shady things, if it was a PC or laptop even, it could be possible. Good luck with that thing.

Even as a workstation, it's wasted dollars.

Ignore everyone, for some reason people feel the need to declare what they don't understand to be "useless, stupid, and a waste of dollars". That iMac is anything but.

As far as graphics goes, each machine has a natural limit and you have to sacrifice some areas to gain in others. The biggest impacter on performance is probably the "screen size" that the game is rendering. If you are running the game at full screen and have selected the highest resolution in the "window size" drop down they your computer is rendering at 4K, which is hard for dedicated chips, let alone integrated ones like what you have. So here's what I recommend:

1. Play in windowed mode, at 1080p (1080 x 1920) (I can't remember if it's exactly 1920, but it's something like that)
2. In upping the graphics, start with the textures, they take very little power to run, but a LOT or video ram, you have a good chunk though so you shouldn't notice to much of a hit. I play on high textures and don't really notice anything.
3. Keep everything in sniper mode (grass, special effects, etc) off or low
4. Special effects are more CPU, so crank those up as far as you want
5. Keep post processing down as well as lighting and stuff.

An easy way to set it up nice (in my opinion) is use the Medium or High preset, then go into details and click the "standard" renderer, then drop the special effects in sniper mode to zero. For me that let's me play the game at 60fps and the computer barely got warm (which means I could have done more)

To add to dstud208's expert advice - you can launch the WoT Mac Wrapper, click on [PLAY] - log in [Connect!] - then [Menu] [the little gear in the top left-corner of the garage] - then [Settings] - then [Graphics] - then click on [Recommended] and let the game chose.

 

See if it works for you then adjust as needed per dstud208's advice.

 

Hope this helps ...

Also... Try going to settings and adjusting settings:

Perhaps the trolls should read the following article from PC Gamer ...

 

http://www.pcgamer.c...-it-overpriced/

 

Quoting the article as:
 

While Apple may have charged a big premium for its computers years ago, it looks like this is no longer the case today.

 

I have challenged trolls to produce an All-in-One that has equal/better specifications for equal/less money than my late 2015 27-inch iMac 5K Retina - and to date they have not.  They keep trying to make comparisons with systems that have a separate case and monitor.
