Apple's $5000 iMac Pro Goes on Sale Later This Week

Apple's $5000 iMac Pro Goes on Sale Later This Week Apple's $5000 iMac Pro Goes on Sale Later This Week

Meanwhile, the iMac Pro should do the job for individuals or companies looking to replace their aging Mac Pros with something more recent and capable of higher workloads.

Translation: it's a hulking great mega beast with astonishing power, a lovely screen and awesome graphics. The iMac Pro isn't particularly upgradable either, which is why Apple is also working on a successor, which should be coming in the next couple of years. The computer's near $5000 price is set to make it a device reserved only for the dedicated professional with resources to spare - and that's just the base model. However, real-world benchmarks for these brand-new chips won't be widely available until the iMac Pro starts showing up on users' desktops.

Apple's baseline for CPU horsepower is an eight-core Intel Xeon processor, but you can bump that up to 10 cores or 18 cores of performance, depending on how much processing power you really need.

A full hands-on video by YouTuber Marques Brownlee, popularly known as MKBHD, showed that the iMac Pro has a space grey paint, which is reminiscent of this year's MacBook Pro. Apple has an all-new thermal design under the hood that claims to deliver 80 percent additional cooling capacity in the same thin iMac design.

For graphics, the iMac Pro will include the all-new Radeon Pro Vega chip, which is three times faster than previous iMac GPU. The iMac Pro still has (yes!) a 3.5mm headphone jack. By having a dialogue with Apple's sales staff, regarding specs and options, the buyers are able to get a better idea about pricing. And today the company updates its official website with the product banner showing that iMac Pro is going on sale starting this Thursday, December 14th.
