The new Apple iMac Pro is successfully revealed to the world with a display of power and technology unknown in the sector of the AIO “all in one” and a price that will require a minimum investment of $ 5,000.
Two Apple seniors, the vice president of global product marketing, Phil Schiller, and the vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi, held a meeting in April with technological means to “curb” the strong criticism of the lack of updating of the Mac line.
In addition to the Mac Pro update, they promised a new iMac Pro. And tomorrow will come in spectacularly because it points to the most advanced “all in one” in the market and perhaps, the highest performance Mac ever created.
The new iPad Pro is based on a 27 ” diagonal ” Retina ” screen with native 5K resolution. It has a brightness of 500 nits, ample support for the P3 colour range and a display of 1,000 million colours. The Apple AIOs will continue without touch technology as the trend in these compact. The Cupertino firm says that “its customers do not demand it. “
The internal hardware of the iMac Pro is simply bestial: Xeon processor with up to 18 cores / 36 threads of native processing, up to 128 Gbytes of DDR4 memory and solid storage unit with PCIe interface of up to 4 Tbytes.
Topping off an overwhelming configuration for an AIO, mount a dedicated AMD Radeon Pro Vega 56 graphics with 8 or 16 Gbytes of HBM2 memory. Apple explains that this graphical solution has been created to measure for the iMac Pro. The level of power has not been detailed, but it is sure to offer great performance, along with support for virtual reality devices and Metal for VR APIs with the that Apple wants to convince developers to provide content to the platform.
In the section of the connectivity stand out four ports Thunderbolt 3 that would allow connecting -for example- two additional 5K screens. It has four USB 3.0 ports, Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, memory card reader and a 3.5 audio connector.
With a new Magic Keyboard keyboard set and the Magic Mouse 2 or Magic Trackpad 2 peripheral, the new iMac Pro will have a base price of $ 4,999. Obviously, it is outside the consumer market, and its destination is a professional audience, publishers or content creators.
