Apple introduced the iMac Pro — single 18-core Intel Xeon processors, 128 GB of RAM and a Radeon Pro Vega
Apple just ended a conference for developers WWDC 2017. Unlike last year, this event was really interesting as it presented a new device and told about the interesting updates.
One of the most important innovations — in-one iMac Pro. Apparently, you can now finally forget about the Mac Pro, as it will replace this model of the candy bar.
So, iMac Pro is a professional tool with the relevant parameters and price. The device has 27-inch panel with a resolution of 5120 x 2880 pixels with a maximum brightness of 500 CD/m2.
It is based on Intel Xeon processors. It may be OCTA-core, 10-core and even the 18-core model! As always, specific models Apple specifies. RAM (DDR4 ECC) may be from 32 to 128 GB. For data storage there is a SSD with capacity from 1 TB to 4 TB, and Apple promises the data transfer rate 3 GB/s.
Very interesting and the graphics subsystem. Monoblock can be equipped with adapters Radeon Pro Vega 56 with 8GB memory and Radeon HBM2 Vega Pro 64 with 16 GB of memory. What kind of adapters are absolutely unclear. It’s probably some modification that uses the GPU Vega 10. Apple says the performance up to 11 TFLOPS (FP32). We will remind, Frontier Edition Radeon Vega, Vega 10 GPU in full configuration, the claimed performance of 13 TFLOPS.
The set of ports the iMac Pro is also unusual. There are four USB 3.0 ports, four Thunderbolt 3, single 10Gb Ethernet, audio Jack and SD card slot. The performance and the set of ports allows, for example, to connect to PC two additional monitor four 5K or 4K monitor. In both cases, with the support of 60 Hz.
Of course, there are adapters Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 4.2. You can also note the FaceTime HD camera and stereo speakers. Comes with keyboard Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad and Magic mouse 2. By the way, all this, including the bar, is executed in color Space Gray.
Separately, Apple said cooling system with two fans. Supposedly it should be fairly quiet with high performance. Remembering what the company has managed to achieve with the creation of a Mac Pro, these statements want to believe.
Dimensions monoblock equal to 650 x 516 x 203 mm weight 9,7 kg. as for the cost, she declared only for models: 5000 dollars. Most likely, the cost of the senior pass for $ 10 000. Buy Apple iMac Pro will be available in December.
