Share

According to a report by 9to5Mac, the 8-core and 10-core models will be available for order on December 14th and the higher core won't be available until later in 2018. Apple has changed how it handles its VESA mount, giving iMac Pro users flexibility to change between using the stand and mount as they please.

"IMac Pro combines the incredible design of the iMac with the most powerful workstation architecture we've ever built...iMac is the most popular desktop for our pro users due to its unbelievable display and elegant design, so we completely re-engineered it to deliver performance far beyond what anyone thought possible in an all-in-one".

AppleCare+ extends warranty coverage on your Apple device and reduces the cost of some repairs. It is certainly a very powerful computer, but like a consumer-grade machine it is not upgradable.

The new device boasts a thin 5mm edge, and comes with a new 1080p FaceTime® HD camera, with new speakers which claim to be 50% louder.

In terms of graphics, the new Mac has the Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU that by default comes with 8GB of HBM2 memory on the base model, going up to Radeon Pro Vego 64 GPU with 16GB of HBM2 memory. But if you are a new user, then you have to pay up $299 for Final Cut Pro X and $199 for Logic Pro X. For half-precision computation, the computer is capable of up to 22 Teraflops of performance.

The machine delivers incredible computing power for real-time 3-D rendering, immersive VR, intensive developer workflows, high megapixel photography, complex simulations, massive audio projects and real-time 4K and 8K video editing.

The system isn't designed for your regular family, and while power is the name of the game, even gamers would have a hard time justifying this, as Apple goes right back to the heart of what made it popular with creatives back in the day, essentially building a Mac Pro inside of an iMac.

All iMac Pro processors feature Turbo Boost, Hyper-threading, four channels of fast 2666MHz DDR4 ECC memory, large L2 and L3 performance caches, and AVX-512 vector instructions.

Apple shares some use cases below to show just how much more powerful iMac Pro is compared to the top quad-core non-Pro iMac.
