iMac Pro: Meet the Most Powerful Machine Apple Has Ever Made

iMac Pro: Meet the Most Powerful Machine Apple Has Ever Made

There was a time when every creative person wanted a computer with a gleaming white apple on the back. This still holds true to some extent, but folks who demand top-level graphics have been left unimpressed in recent years. Finally, Apple has now addressed this issue with the powerful new iMac Pro. This 5K beast lets you develop amazing 3D and VR experiences. The catch? Prices start at $4,999.

– Billed as “the most powerful Mac ever”

– 27-inch 5K display and support for external GPU

– 8-Core Intel Xeon CPU on the base model, and 32GB of RAM

The Most Powerful Mac Ever

For most people, buying an IndyCar would be cool but largely pointless. You wouldn’t get through the traffic any faster, and your bank account would be scarred for life.

Similarly, most people don’t need to even consider the iMac Pro. This high-end machine is made for the cutting edge of visual creativity. Using it for emails and spreadsheets would be an insult.

The iMac Pro is actually designed for stuff like 3D video and virtual reality. You can view your work at 5K resolution on the 27-inch Retina display. The top model is powered by an 18-core Intel processor, with a ridiculous 22 teraflops of GPU performance. No, these are not misprints. The base model comes with 32GB of RAM, expandable to 128GB.

The new desktop also has a brand new cooling system, based around dual centrifugal fans. In terms of connectivity, you get 4 Thunderbolt ports and 10GB Ethernet to play with.

The design doesn’t look that far removed from a regular iMac. The only striking difference is a new Space Gray finish. The keyboard and Magic Mouse both receive the same treatment. That said, it’s still the heart of this machine that does all the talking.

“The all-new iMac Pro, with its gorgeous 27-inch Retina 5K display, up to 18-core Xeon processors and up to 22 teraflops of graphics computation, is the most powerful Mac ever made.” — Apple.com

What We ❤️

The perfect blend of pro-level specs and Apple design. The darker look makes us wonder whether Batman helped Jony Ive on this one.

Room for Improvement

Seriously?! You want something here?! Well…while the all-in-one design is pretty, it would be nice if you could upgrade more of the components.

Availability

The iMac Pro will be available from December, with prices starting at $4,999.
