Hello and welcome.

Unfortunately, those components aren't upgradeable, as they are part of the logic board itself. The only real upgrade you can do is to increase the RAM in your iMac. It has four RAM slots, and it supports up to 16 GB officially (Apple), 32 GB unofficially. RAM is always the most inexpensive performance boost.

If you really need more rendering speed, then your best choice would be to purchase a newer model iMac, or even a Mac Pro.

Hope that helps,

C
