Apple’s powerful new iMac Pro, announced back at the WWDC in June 2017, is now available. This top-of-the-line Mac, available in a beautiful space gray color, is designed for apps and workflows where multicore processing is critical. Photographers, video editors, 3D animators, scientists, musicians, and software developers will benefit from its processing speed.
The iMac Pro’s specs are superior to any other Mac. Its core processor provides Turbo Boost speeds of up to 4.5GHz using a multicore Xeon processor (available with 8, 10, 14, or 18 cores, with up to a 42MB cache). The processor, with both single-thread and hyper-thread ability, builds and renders images of all kinds — static or animated, 2D or 3D — with ease.
The iMac Pro’s 27-inch monitor is Apple’s best ever, with 500 nits of brightness (43% brightness increase), 14.7 million pixels, and one billion colors. A Radeon Pro Vega Graphics card (56 or 64) features up to 16GB of high bandwidth memory (up to 22 teraflops fast) that supports both single and half-precision computing. With four channels of memory, the iMac Pro can accommodate up to 128GB of RAM. Up to 4TB of all-flash storage accommodates work on large 4K HD projects. The throughput is up to 3GB, loading huge files and launching apps faster than ever.
Apple’s T2 chip has been redesigned to integrate several controllers found in other Mac systems, including the system management controller, image signal processor, audio controller and the SSD controller.
Four Thunderbolt 3 ports allow you to connect two 5K monitors (for a total of 44 million pixels) and transfer data at a blazing 40GB/second. 10GB Ethernet lets you share files between desktops, or work with high-performance network storage, up to 10 times faster.
The iMac Pro’s cooling system has been upgraded with a redesigned thermal architecture incorporating innovative dual blowers, a high-capacity heatsink, and extra venting. This provides almost 75% more airflow and an 80% increase in system thermal capacity.
All-new enhanced stereo speakers deliver broad frequency response, rich bass, and more volume. Available exclusively at the time of your iMac Pro purchase, new wireless and rechargeable accessories include the new Magic Keyboard (with a numeric keypad), the Magic Mouse 2, and the Magic Trackpad 2.
