  • Apple iMac Pro launches December 14 Everything we know

Earlier today, Apple updated the iMac Pro landing page to confirm that sales will launch on December 14 for customers in the US, although no specific date for a Canadian release has been given so far.

Graphics are driven with the all-new Radeon Pro Vega, which Apple said offers three times the performance over other iMac GPUs.

Tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee got an early look at the new iMac Pro and posted his first impressions of the computer Tuesday morning.

The iMac Pro will begin shipping on the 14th of December this year, with prices starting at a penny under $5000.

The 27-inch iMac will start at $4,999. The information present on site doesn't include any prices tag, specifications or configuration instead of the company just mentioned about the sale date.

From professional engineers to videographers, those who expect a lot out of their machines have had nothing but good things to say about the new iMac Pro.




The computer will also have Turbo Boost speeds of up to 4.5GHz with a cache of up to 42MB, according to Apple's site.

Apple's iMac Pro is available this Wednesday, but that doesn't necessarily mean you can get what you want on launch day. The chip can fetch data at up to 400GB per second.

Given that this is a pro machine, you can configure up to 128GB of DDR4-2666 ECC memory, and up to 4TB of SSD storage. The computer can also be transformed into a bigger workstation. The iMac Pro will be carrying a Vega graphics chip, with 16GB of HBM2 memory on board. The screens amount to a total of 44 million pixels.

Testing an iMac Pro configured as a 10 Core 3GHZ Intel Xeon W with 2TB SSD, 128 GB RAM and Vega 64 Radeon, Laforet noticed a 200-300% increase in performance in nearly every industry leading software with the iMac Pro.

Apple cited the need for a little extra time to ideal both.

"Pros love iMac. So when they asked us to build them a killer iMac, we went all in".
