Apple's iMac Pro Release Date Happening Before Xmas

Apple's iMac Pro Release Date Happening Before Xmas

But it's worth noting that Brownlee looked up similar specifications for a PC, and the total came out to $200 above the iMac Pro, not even taking into account the 5K screen.

It seems as if the iMac Pro is still targeted to creative professionals, with the capabilities to handle high-performance tasks like easy editing of 3D graphics and 4K video.

That suggests that Apple will start selling their new iMac Pro some time this week, it could possibly go on sale on Friday, although this has yet to be confirmed.

The iMac Pro will be available in 8-, 10-, and 18-core Xeon SKUs, offering a total of 16-, 20- and 36-threads for completing your most intense multi-threaded applications.

According to a number of early reviews, Apple's brand new iMac Pro is an absolute beast of a machine. Apple doesn't mention base clock speeds but lets on that Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.5 GHz are on tap. The chip can fetch data at up to 400GB per second.

As for connectivity and storage, the iMac Pro comes with up to 4TB of SSD storage and four Thunderbolt 3 ports. The computer can also be transformed into a bigger workstation. That is if the company wants to keep its word that the iMac Pro will be launched in stores by the end of the year. The screens amount to a total of 44 million pixels.

The iMac Pro sports a Retina 5K display with support for over a billion colors.

Testing an iMac Pro configured as a 10 Core 3GHZ Intel Xeon W with 2TB SSD, 128 GB RAM and Vega 64 Radeon, Laforet noticed a 200-300% increase in performance in nearly every industry leading software with the iMac Pro. The 27-inch display includes 500 nits of brightness across its 14.7 million pixels.
