Given that this is Apple’s most powerful desktop ever built, it is not a cheap buy. An Australian price is yet to be announced. So watch this space if you want to get your hands on one or let us know and we can discuss what we can do for you.
Update 15/12/17. The ‘base’ price for the iMac Pro has been listed at $7,299.00
With all of these high-end features packed into the new iMac Pro, it will make doing complex tasks easier.
The iMac Pro also includes 10Gb Ethernet port, a first for a Mac. It supports industry-standard 1Gb link speeds.
The 5K display will bring with it 14.7 million pixels, this will end up being about 43% brighter than the iMac.
The iMac Pro is set to feature A10 Fusion coprocessor, which is possibly for always-on ‘Hey Siri’.
By having four (USB-C) Thunderbolt 3 ports, the iMac Pro can connect up to two high-performance RAID arrays and two 5K displays at the same time. This will then give you the capacity to work better and more efficiently than ever before.
In summarising, the iMac Pro packs incredible performance for advanced graphics editing, virtual reality content creation and real-time 3D rendering. The iMac Pro provides a great experience for video editors and software developers to users who demand the best that there is.
