Yep, Soldered! Here's the IFIXIT teardown where you can see it: iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2638 Teardown Jump down to Step4 the Red outline square is the CPU.


Ok, thanks. Good answer.


what about the gt 750m with socket variant?, what are the possibilities?


As you can see here: iMac 21.5" 3.1 GHz i7 (Late 2013) all of the 2013 models had soldered CPU's (this being the high end model).
