Apple has put on sale the new iMac Pro: 18 core processor and up to 128GB of RAM and 4TB of SSD. Starting price 5599 euros, available from December 14
It had been presented during the Worldwide Developers Conference 2017 and had been given an appointment at the end of December for the market launch. We are talking about the iMac Pro, the most powerful computer ever made by the Cupertino company and dedicated to creatives, to those who with the computer make animated videos and design large constructions.
For the iMac Pro Apple did not mind half measures and made a computer with extremely high performance. Every single hardware component is top of the line in its field, starting with the Xeon processor that can have up to 18 cores. Not to mention the RAM and video card, unique in their kind. Apple has also managed to contain the dimensions: the computer is only 5 centimeters thick, like the latest version of the iMac launched on the market. The iMac Pro is available in Italy from December 14 at a price of 5599 euros for the basic version.
Features iMac Pro
As stated by Apple, the iMac Pro is the computer made by Cupertino more powerful than ever. It is dedicated to professionals who do fairly specific work: video editors, 3D animation, musicians, scientists (research requires increasingly powerful computers), developers and designers. The iMac Pro is a concentration of power, starting with the Xeon processor that can have up to 18 cores (three versions are available: 8-core, 10-core and 18-core). The computer also has the Turbo Boost feature up to 4.5GHz that allows you to perform "heavy" actions in a few seconds.
For the video card Apple has opted for the new model Radeon Pro Vega, graphics accelerator mounted for the first time ever on the iMac Pro. From a performance point of view, it's three times more powerful than any other GPU mounted on previous Macs and also supports virtual reality and real-time 3D rendering. Needless to say, it has no problem whatsoever with video games, even the most demanding ones from a performance point of view. As for RAM and internal storage, the iMac Pro supports up to 128GB of RAM and a 4TB SSD.
One of the unique features that has always characterized the iMac is the screen. The iMac Pro mounts a Retina 5K panel with a 27-inch diagonal, 14.7 million pixels and a brightness of 500 nits. With over a billion colors, every image will show up perfectly.
Connectivity and ventilation iMac pro
With so much power, you might think the iMac Pro would heat up a lot. Far from it. Apple has patented a system so that the computer circulates 75% more air and has an 80% higher thermal capacity.
The iMac Pro is a workstation and to be called such it needs to have a large number of ports. On the computer we find four Thunderbolt 3 ports that allow you to connect up to 2 displays with 5K resolution and transfer files with a speed of up to 40Gbps. In addition, there is also a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port that allows you to share files in no time.
