I’m salivating over the new iMac Pro, due for release in December. Apple have gone far, far beyond, creating an iMac packed with the most staggeringly powerful collection of workstation-class graphics, processors, storage, memory and I/O of any Mac ever.
A lean, mean dream machine, an iMac with up to 18 cores is an entirely different creature than its predecessor wiht 8 cores. Add Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.5GHz, and iMac Pro has the power and flexibility to balance superb multicore processing with great single-thread performance. So whether you’re rendering files, editing 4K video, creating real-time audio effects or compiling your next five-star app, it all gets done at lightning-fast speeds.
The Radeon Pro Vega graphics card is more than three times faster than any previous iMac GPU, packing the power of a double-wide graphics card into a single chip. All of which translates to higher frame rates for VR, real-time 3D rendering, more lifelike special effects and gameplay at maximum settings.
As you’d expect from this machine, there are plenty of high-speed ports to create a high-performance workstation. You’ve got four Thunderbolt 3 ports, so you can connect two 5K monitors and transfer data at a blazing-fast 40 Gbps.
Its 27-inch screen is dazzling, 500 nits of brightness across its 14.7 million pixels. Along with a P3 colour and support for over a billion colours, iMac Pro delivers spectacular true-to-life images.
The perfect match for iMac Pro, the new space grey accessories are wireless, rechargeable and beautiful to behold. The new Magic Keyboard includes a numeric keypad, and to go with it you can choose either the Magic Mouse 2 or Magic Trackpad 2.
