The new iPad Pro packs a bigger screen into a familiar body
Apple has just announced their new all-in-one desktop, the iMac Pro, and boy does it have some hefty specs.
Featuring next-generation Intel Xeon processors up to 18 cores, iMac Pro is created to handle the most demanding pro workflows.
iMacs for 2017 also get up to 50 percent faster SSDs which can be up to 2TB and other features such as two USB-C ports that support Thunderbolt 3.
The final thing worth noting is that macOS is also getting an update this year known as "High Sierra", which will make various improvements to Safari and overall OS performance. Graphics power will come courtesy of AMD's Radeon Vega graphics chip with up to 16GB of VRAM on board.
The 27-inch Retina 5K's graphics will move up as well with the Radeon 570, 575, and 580 and up to 8 GB of VRAM, making it a better platform for VR developers. We're looking at Apple's new iMac Pro starting at $4999. and scaling much higher than that if you pack it with all of the tech goodies you can imagine. This device will work with up to 128Gb of ECC memory as well as up to 4TB of SSD space.
Apple also said it will double the memory of the new model with the entry level version coming with 64GB storage. Four Thunderbolt 3 ports and 10Gb Ethernet will be available for I/O as well as an array of full USBs.
iMac also comes with the best Mac® display ever, now 43 percent brighter at 500 nits and with support for 1 billion colors, delivering an even more vivid and true-to-life viewing experience.
All iMac and MacBook Pro updates are shipping starting today. The new MacBook Air models will also get a bump in processor speed. They usually rely on 15-watt TDP processors (Thermal Design Power), but you can run it at 25 or 28 watts too.
Apple also showed off the next version of Mac OS, which has the rather odd name of High Sierra. The prices remain largely the same across the board, aside from a newly-cheaper 13-inch MacBook Pro for $1,299. Without Touch Bars across both of Apple's most popular Mac products, we find it unlikely that major software developers like Adobe will add further support for the Touch Bar to their apps beyond their current lukewarm efforts. Steam VR for Mac is available now in beta form.
