Power to the pro.
Pros love iMac. So when they asked us to build them a killer iMac, we went all in. And then we went way, way beyond, creating an iMac packed with the most staggeringly powerful collection of workstation-class graphics, processors, storage, memory and I/O of any Mac ever. And we did it without adding a millimetre to its iconic all-in-one design. So everyone from video editors to 3D animators to musicians to software developers to scientists can do what they do like they’ve never done before. Introducing iMac Pro. A lean, mean dream machine.
18 cores in an iMac. No, that’s not a typo.
An iMac with 8 cores is remarkable enough. But an iMac with up to 18 cores is an entirely different creature. Add Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.5GHz, and iMac Pro has the power and flexibility to balance superb multicore processing with great single-thread performance. So whether you’re rendering files, editing 4K video, creating real-time audio effects or compiling your next five-star app, it all gets done at lightning speed. Proof, once again, that there’s strength in numbers.
Vega graphics. The beast behind the beauty.
When we considered how much we wanted this iMac to be capable of, it was clear that only one graphics chip would do — but that chip didn’t exist yet. So iMac Pro is debuting a new one. The Radeon Pro Vega is over three times faster than any previous iMac GPU, packing the power of a double-wide graphics card into a single chip. All of which translates to higher frame rates for VR, real-time 3D rendering, more lifelike special effects and gameplay at max settings. It’s one huge reason iMac Pro is power incarnate.
More memory for massive projects.
iMac Pro can accommodate an impressive amount of memory — up to 128GB. So you can visualise, simulate and render huge 3D models. Create multiple test environments for cross-platform development. Keep numerous apps open at the same time. And slice through data-intensive tasks like a hot knife through butter.
Serious I/O. For serious work.
As you’d expect from a pro machine, there are plenty of high-speed ports to create a high-performance workstation. For starters, you’ve got four Thunderbolt 3 ports, so you can connect two 5K monitors — for a whopping 44 million pixels total — and transfer data at a blazing 40Gb/s. And there’s something you probably didn’t expect in an iMac: 10Gb Ethernet. So sharing files between desktops, or working with high-performance network storage, is up to 10 times faster.
Advanced thermal management. Cool.
Performance takes power, and power makes heat. To deal with it, we completely redesigned the thermal architecture of iMac Pro with innovative dual-blowers, a massive heatsink and extra venting. The result? Almost 75 per cent more airflow and an 80 per cent increase in system thermal capacity. Which lets iMac Pro handle 500 watts — 67 per cent more power than the previous iMac — and stay cool.
Accessories with a dark side.
The perfect match for iMac Pro, these new space grey accessories are wireless, rechargeable and beautiful to behold. The new Magic Keyboard includes a numeric keypad and comes with your choice of Magic Mouse 2 or Magic Trackpad 2.
