Apple at WWDC 2017 demonstrated that its pro users have a lot to look forward to. Aside from supercharging its iPad lineup, Apple updated the entirety of its MacBook line with speedier Kaby Lake processors and faster SSDs. Further, some of Apple’s notebooks will now feature more powerful graphics.
Apple’s iMac Pro. Priced at $4,999 with an option to max the machine out with 18 core Xeon processors
An iMac with 8 cores is remarkable enough. But an iMac with up to 18 cores is an entirely different creature. Add Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.5GHz, and iMac Pro has the power and flexibility to balance superb multicore processing with great single-thread performance. So whether you’re rendering files, editing 4K video, creating real-time audio effects, or compiling your next five-star app, it all gets done at lightning speed.
The Radeon Pro Vega is over three times faster than any previous iMac GPU, packing the power of a double-wide graphics card into a single chip. All of which translates to higher frame rates for VR, real-time 3D rendering, more lifelike special effects, and gameplay at max settings.
Up to 4TB of all-flash storage lets you work on large 4K and HD projects regardless of codec. Thunderbolt 3 ports, so you can connect two 5K monitors — for a whopping 44 million pixels total — and transfer data at a blazing 40Gb/s.
The new Magic Keyboard includes a numeric keypad and comes with your choice of Magic Mouse 2 or Magic Trackpad 2
