Apple has renewed its iMac and MacBook Pro with improvements in its hardware in WWDC 2017 , but above all we have met with a pleasant surprise: the presentation of the new iMac Pro , which will be the most powerful Mac in Apple’s history when it is Available at the end of the year.
This special model of the iMac with Retina 5K 27 inches comes with a dark color throughout the chassis, but above all is differentiated by a hardware bet that will integrate the best of the best. A real beast of the process that, yes, will not be cheap.
A dream hardware that not everyone can afford
The new iMac Pro presents its credentials with the same external design as the aforementioned 27-inch iMac 5K, but it brings that ‘space gray’ differential color that makes it clear that this is a special equipment for Apple and its users.
Inside, many surprises. For starters, a cooling system with two fans that will dispel the heat generated by its latest generation components.
Among them two stand out in a very special way. First, the Intel Xeon processors of 8, 10 and even 18 cores were introduced recently. Second, the presence of dedicated graphics cards AMD Radeon Pro Vega with up to 16GB of memory HBM2, which according to Apple will achieve a performance of 11 TFLOPS in calculations of simple precision.
These configurations will be complemented with other sections equally highlighted. For example, with an amount of memory that can reach 128 GB of ECC memory , four Thunderbolt 3 ports and up to 4 TB of SSD storage.
In addition, another interesting element: 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to move large data flows in data networks. There are many more options, such as the presence of the FaceTime 1080p camera, the optional VESA mount or a high-speed SDXC UHS-II card reader.
Price and availability of iMac Pro
All of these components, of course, will have a price that will be high: the iMac Pro will have a starting price of $4,999 when it appears in December.
That’s when we can see how this beast of the process behaves that will take advantage of the latest hardware announcements in the market: we have before us the one who will be one of the benchmarks of the market if you are looking for an exceptional power.
