For those who like their tech straight off the tippy top shelf, Apple released a computer just for you. Dubbed the iMac Pro, the sleek device is accordingly a force to be reckoned with. It’s aimed at all the pros out there who want everything they could ever ask for in one place, without the need for any personal adjustments. Entailed in that promise are Xeon processors, up to 22 Teraflops of graphics, and a 27″ Retina 5K Display. Expect power, speed and performance like you’ve never before, and a price tag that will make you blush.
Among the seemingly endless bevy of features offered by the iMac Pro are real-time 3D rendering and immersive VR. That’s joined by a suite of apps that have never performed better, delivering stunning photography, bone-tingling audio and real-time video editing in both 4K and 8K among other things. Bursting forth from the display–which Apple is claiming to be the best ever for a Mac–are 500 nits of brightness and a P3 wide colour gamut to support over 1 billion colours. Meanwhile, 10Gb Ethernet ensures up to 10 times greater networking speeds.
On the design front, the iMac Pro delivers modest touch-ups over similar intalments from the brand. Specifically, that means new thermal architecture good for up to 80% more cooling capacity. The device is also painstakingly thin and decked out in a sleek coat of space grey. Included in the package is a Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse, while owners have the option to throw in a Magic Trackpad as well.
John Ternus, Apple VP of Hardware Engineering, put it best when he said the following: “iMac Pro combines the incredible design of the iMac with the most powerful workstation architecture we’ve ever built.”
Indeed, whether you want to render massive 3D images at breakneck speeds, manipulate complex data sets, export multi-track music projects, edit high resolution videos in real time, or just show off to your friends, the iMac Pro has your name written all over it. And to think it will just cost you a mere A$7299 to own one.
