Apple Teases Behemoth iMac Pro and New MacBooks

To start with, Apple has finally teased a new iMac Pro and has finally updated the old iMac series during the event.

WWDC 2017: Featuring next-generation Intel Xeon processors up to 18 cores, iMac Pro is created to handle demanding pro workflows.

Yes, it's a powerful system - the baseline systems ship with a 27-inch 500-nit 5K display and eight-core Intel Xeon processors, and 18-core systems can be configured.

On the contrary, Apple will exclusively include the Space Gray Magic Keyboard and Mouse with the purchase of an iMac Pro, meaning you'll need to spend at least $4,999 to get them.

For its computers, Apple unveiled Mac OS High Sierra. Apple also today updated MacBook® and MacBook Pro® with faster processors, added faster SSDs to MacBook and introduced a new 13-inch MacBook Pro configuration. SSD storage options are now up to 50% faster, and iMac comes with Thunderbolt 3, the most powerful and versatile port ever. Depending on the model you buy, the graphics card could range from Intel Iris Plus 640 (on the entry-level 21.5 inch versions) to either the Radeon Oro 555 and 560 graphics cards on the 21.5-inch iMacs to either the Radeon Pro 570, 575, and 580 cards on the larger 27-inch mmodel.

The new iMac Pro proves Apple wasn't holding back at WWDC 2017, announcing what it calls 'the most powerful Mac ever made'. These are said to be 3x faster than the previous gen graphics unit.

Signalling the intent of the government, Goyal said the ministry is doing its job to revive stalled and stressed thermal and hydro power projects.

The new iPad Pro costs $649 and will begin shipping next week.

Graphics on iMac are much more powerful across the line with the new Radeon Pro 500-series graphics with up to 8GB of vRAM. All-Flash storage is configurable at up to 4 TB, 2666 MHz DDR4 ECC RAM scales to 128 GB, and two Thunderbolt 3 controllers are built in for accessing external storage and other devices.

The new graphics cards are aimed at content creators, said AMD. A six-core CPU and 12-core GPU deliver up to 30% faster CPU performance and 40% faster graphics performance than the A9X chip, while delivering all-day battery life.

And if that's not enough, the iMac Pro will feature 10Gb Ethernet, a first for a Mac, and hard to find on a desktop as it is. It has designed an "innovative thermal architecture that gives iMac Pro 80 per cent more cooling capacity", so you can enjoy the extreme performance in a slim iMac design.

Rounding off the iMac Pro's specs is a 1080p FaceTime camera.

If you can afford it, you can also upgrade the boost the MacBook's performance by doubling the amount of memory to 16 GB - previously, you were maxed out at 8 GB.
