iMac is a range of all-in-one Macintosh desktop computers designed and built by Apple. iMac has been there on Apple’s product list since 1998 and is getting better and more powerful with time.
The new iMac Pro features a 5k display and thanks to the added muscle under the hood, iMac has a support of up to two additional 5k displays, something Apple says it has never been offered before, that will be running Apple’s latest OS that is MacOS High Sierra. The company says it’s as fast as a full workstation but inside a Mac, even Apple quoted their selves that “This will be our fastest and most powerful Mac ever, which brings workstation-class computing to iMac for the first time.”
This year at Apple’s WWDC (World Wide Developer’s Conference), that was held on 5th June 2016 in San Jose, California, Apple showcased their new desktop PC after several years of when iMac was released.
While the design of the standard 21inch and 27inch iMac hasn’t changed beyond improvements to the quality of the display, the new iMac Pro when it arrives will have a new, darker, shrouded Space Grey case. The new iMac Pro has been completely rethink the thermal architecture in order to house the new components. And with the new fan system that offers an 80 percent increase in cooling capacity.
Apple stated: “We reengineered the whole system and designed an entirely new thermal architecture to pack extraordinary performance into the elegant, quiet iMac enclosure our customers love — iMac Pro is a huge step forward and there’s never been anything like it.”
All the new iMacs will feature new retina displays that are 43% brighter than the older versions, with 500nits and 10-bit dithering which are capable of reproducing one billion colors. The new 21.5-inch Retina models still offer 4096×2304 (4K) resolution, while the 27inch iMac still offers 5120×2880 (5K) resolution
The all new 21inch and 27inch iMac will be powered by all-new Kaby Lake processors featuring next-generation Intel Xeon processors up to 18- Cores. The new iMac Pro will ship with Space Grey keyboard and trackpad.
The other basic specifications are:
- 32GB of 2666MHz DDR4 Ram (Configurable to 128GB)
- 1TB SSD (Configurable to 4TB)
- AMD Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU with 8GB of HBM2 (Configurable to 16 GB)
- Front 1080p FaceTime HD Camera
- 4 microphones, 3.5mm headphone jack with Built-in stereo speakers
- Four USB 3.0 ports
- Four Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports
- SDXC card slot
The specifications for the new iMac Pro looks are so powerful and are really beefed up which raises one question if the new iMac Pro can run the new generation games? Yes, based on the CPU and GPU alone, the new iMac Pro would be outstanding gaming PCs. iMac Pro comes with the new Radeon Pro Vega GPU, the most advanced graphics ever in a Mac with Fast Storage and Advanced I/O.
New Space Grey Mouse and Trackpad:
According to Apple, only iMac Pro buyers will get space gray mouse and keyboard. Sadly, the new space gray Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad, and Magic Keyboard will be only available only to those who purchase the new iMac Pro and will not be sold separately.
A new imac is an awesome machine that in my opinion deserves a price tag of $4,999. Featuring a stunning new space gray enclosure, iMac Pro provides incredible performance for advanced graphic editing, Video editing, real-time 3D rendering and much more. The new iMac Pro is scheduled to ship in December this year.
