Apple's iMac Pro Release Date Happening Before Xmas

Apple's iMac Pro Release Date Happening Before Xmas

It's been a long while since Apple first gave us a taste of what we could expect from the upcoming iMac Pro release.

Translation: it's a hulking great mega beast with astonishing power, a lovely screen and wonderful graphics. Simple: Apple's clients will want to spec out their iMac Pros and secure financing or funds to acquire the machines. However, the iMac Pro throws everything but the kitchen sink at the all-in-one form-factor, including Intel's current Xeon W series of processors that were designed for mainstream workstations.

Plane crash in San Diego neighborhood led to deaths of 2 people
The single-engine, six-seat Beech BE36 Bonanza had taken off from Montgomery Field about a half-mile away, FOX 5 reported . The pilot was trying to make an emergency landing in a schoolyard, but failed as the aircraft slammed into the house.

Graphics and GPU compute capability come courtesy of AMD's Radeon Pro Vega silicon. Apple touted the graphics performance for real-time 3D rendering and high-frame-rate VR work, claiming 11 TFLOPS of power, or for machine-learning applications where it said the Vega can deliver 22 TFLOPS at half-precision. The Thunderbolt ports are joined by a smattering of USB 3.0 Type-A connectors, audio jacks, a card reader, and a 10-Gigabit Ethernet port. It's quite clear that Apple isn't kidding around.

Apple described the iMac Pro as a "lean, mean dream machine". If the nomenclature sounds at all familiar, you might recall that Apple first introduced a T-series chip past year when it rolled out the MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar and support for Touch ID. The device sports up to 128GB of RAM and up to 4TB SSD for the storage, with the base model coming with 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD. It has 802.11ac WiFi built in, along with Bluetooth 4.2.

"iMac Pro" is one of the Apple Inc. But for smaller shops and one-person operations running FCP and working with 4K video, this system likely hits the price/performance sweet spot.
