Translation: it's a hulking great mega beast with astonishing power, a attractive screen and unbelievable graphics.
Apple sales staff have begun asking long-time clients what custom iMac Pro configuration they're after, and they're making preparations to take orders next week. (NASDAQ:AAPL) said it would release a new Mac Pro and introduce an iMac Pro as well.
If you've been holding out upgrading your computer in anticipation of the release of Apple's iMac Pro, there may still be a chance you could find one under your Christmas tree. The hard drive is 4TB and the Redeon Vega GPU comes with 16GB of RAM. Apple doesn't mention base clock speeds but lets on that Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.5 GHz are on tap. Finally, there is also a 10Gb Ethernet port for fast networking. For now, the only way to get it is if you shell out for a $5,000 iMac Pro. It's quite clear that Apple isn't kidding around.
The system comes packing 1 TB of internal SSD storage.
Third, the iMac Pro obviously makes the most sense for the Apple faithful, especially those who have fully embraced FCP X. For PC users running Adobe software, there are plenty of workstation hardware options that can give Apple a run for its money. Apple was tight-lipped as to the manufacturer and interface used for the SSDs, but given the computers' price tags and pro-duty aspirations, we'd imagine they're speedy NVMe units. If wires are too twentieth century, buyers can use 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity.
The iMac Pro will come in space grey - from its monitor to keyboard and mouse. For me the answer is easy: "when compared to the previous generation iMac or the current top of the line 15" MacBook Pro, the iMacPRO tears through footage and images, allowing me to spend less time behind a computer, and more time shooting.
