IMac Pro Appears To Feature New T2 Chip For Extra Security

IMac Pro Appears To Feature New T2 Chip For Extra Security

Prices start at $4999 for the base configuration.

Tech giant Apple announced its first ever iMac Pro back in June and said that the product would be available on sale in December.

It will feature a 27-inch Retina 5K display, up to 18-core Xeon processors and up to 22 Teraflops of graphics computation.

These emails ask for specific customizations, including storage, RAM, and GPU needs.

There hasn't been a proper, balls to the wall Mac since 2013, which hasn't aged well due to its lack of upgrade options. Simple: Apple's clients will want to spec out their iMac Pros and secure financing or funds to acquire the machines.

$450 million Leonardo portray heading to new Louvre museum
People visit the Louvre Museum, during the public opening day, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017. Leonardo Da Vinci's Salvator Mundi; the world's most expensive painting, is going to be exhibited at Abu Dhabi's Louvre.

While we all know the new iMac Pro is going to be off the charts in terms of performance, an early hands on by professional photographer Vincent Laforet has revealed an impressive 200-300% increase in performance from previous generation. Here's when you can really get each model.

Pushing all the graphics on the 5K display is the AMD Radeon Pro Vega with 8GB of HBM2, enabling the device to fetch data at up to 400GB per second and pushing up to 11 teraflops of power.

Apple described the iMac Pro as a "lean, mean dream machine". Finally, there is also a 10Gb Ethernet port for fast networking. If wires are too twentieth century, buyers can use 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity. This is what Apple hopes will tide over "Pro" users until its new Mac Pro system comes out next year.

At least for all that money, the iMac Pro will come bundled with a matching space grey Magic Keyboard (with numpad), Magic Mouse 2 and a Magic Trackpad 2. That may change in the future, but unless you plan on buying a new iMac Pro, your best shot at getting an à la carte black Lightning cable might be through a reseller like eBay.
