The iMac Pro has just found a release date. The computer will indeed be available from December 14. However, you will need a well-stocked bank account to take advantage of it since the basic configuration will be offered at just under € 5,000.
The iMac Pro is eagerly awaited by fans of the Apple brand. Presented at WWDC 2017, this new all-in-one is indeed the most powerful computer ever made by Apple.
Originally, Apple had mentioned a launch planned for the end of the year without giving additional details. We therefore had to wait until this week to find out the launch date of this machine, not quite like the others.
The iMac Pro will be released tomorrow
The company indicates on its site that the iMac Pro will be available from December 14 and therefore tomorrow.
It does not stop there, moreover, and thus takes the trouble to outline the technical characteristics of the iMac Pro.
Apple has clearly not done in half measures on this side and this new all-in-one will thus be placed on the top of the basket. The computer will indeed ship a 27-inch diagonal Retina 5K screen, a screen capable of displaying a resolution of 5120 x 2880 with a luminance of 500 nits and support for DCI-P3.
Behind, the machine can count on Intel Xeons with eight, ten or eighteen cores. These will also be coupled with 32, 64 or 128 GB of RAM and the storage space can reach 2 or 4 TB in SSD and with the associated options.
An entrance ticket around € 5,000
On the graphics card side, the iMac Pro will be able to count on Radeon Pro Vega and more specifically on Vega 56 (8 GB) or Vega 64 (16 GB). Image professionals will therefore have plenty of fun.
Same thing on the connection side. In addition to the traditional Ethernet ports, headphone jack and SD card readers, there are four USB 3.0 ports and four Thunderbolt 3 ports in USB-C format.
The craziest thing, ultimately, is that the apple brand has managed to fit all its components into a chassis with dimensions close to those of the classic iMac. Whether you like the company and its products or not, you can at least recognize the know-how of its designers and engineers.
