Apple has recently unveiled major updates to the 27-inch iMac, with better performance, SSDs, 1080p FaceTime Camera, optional nano-texture glass, and more. However, while not as significant, Apple has made a minor update to the iMac Pro.
Previously the standard configuration iMac Pro included an 8-core Intel Xeon Processor. With the option to configure with a 10-core, or even 18-core processor. However now iMac Pro includes the 10-core Intel Xeon W processor to start. While a new 14-core and 18-core processors available as upgrades.
The standard configuration of the iMac Pro is now as follows:
3.0GHz 10-core Intel Xeon W processor
Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz
32GB of 2666MHz ECC memory, configurable up to 256GB
1TB of SSD storage
Radeon Pro Vega 56 with 8GB of HBM2 memory
Four Thunderbolt 3 ports
27-inch 5120-by-2880 P3 Retina 5K display
It does appear all other specifications remains the same, as does the starting price of A$7,299 in Australia. Unfortunately, the nano-texture glass option which was made available on the 27-inch iMac is not an option for the iMac Pro. Surprising considering the iMac Pro is a professional-focused product.
iMac Pro can be configured and ordered from Apple’s online store. Apple is offering free, fast delivery and returns around Australia on all purchases. University students and teachers can save A$590 off the Recommended Retail Price with Apple’s educational pricing offer.
