At the WWDC 2017, Apple announced ARKit, new VR software in the macOS Sierra that provides a suite of tools and the highlight of the event – Apple iMac Pro. You might be thinking that iMac Pro is the odd one of the aforementioned three. Don’t forget that hardware is a very significant thing to go swiftly with the futuristic technology. Of course, Apple is now not lagging behind.
Apple iMac Pro
The all-mighty iMac Pro previewed at WWDC 2017 is a complete beauty. However, the beast behind this beauty is its high-end, future-oriented specs. The gorgeous, all-in-one iMac Pro has a 27-inch 5K retina display, 18-core Xeon processors, and graphics computation support of up to 22 Teraflops. The system packs incredible, workstation level performance for the futuristic technologies. But Apple’s iMac Pro bears a heavy price tag of $4,999. As expected, something powerful at Apple never comes without a ‘but’, MacBook Air for instance.
Advanced graphics deserves the limelight
Apple $4,999 iMac sports the most advanced graphics – Radeon Pro Vega GPU. This high-end graphics, with high bandwidth memory of 16GB, supports large computation rate for immersive AR and VR experiences, 3D rendering, and machine learning; almost a next-generation boost.
iMac Pro packs Workstation level performance
The new iMac sports the Intel’s latest Xeon CPU, an upgrade from the already available Mac systems. With up to 18-core processor, the Cupertino giant promises pro workflows. The $4,999 iMac support 5K display resolution which is really step-up for the PCs.
Storage and I/O
Apple’s stunning iMac supports up to 4TB of SSD, 32GB of ECC RAM and comes with four Thunderbolt 3 ports. With the four ports, memory boost, 10-gigabit of Ethernet and 4X L2 cache we can expect faster networking and better processing concurrency.
