‘18 cores in an iMac. No, that’s not a typo.’ – Apple Inc.
Apple’s renowned worldwide developers conference introduced us to a new iMac Pro. A faster, sleeker version of its predecessors that even sports a new slate gray paint job.
This particular model is aimed at video editors, game developers and all those who fall under the technological creative umbrella. As advances such as virtual reality become more mainstream Apple seeks to deliver a machine that can shift with the tide and evolve with the times.
Under the armour you will find an all new centrifugal cooling system with two fans that protect the system’s Xeon processor by drawing heat away. A system which you can configure with no less than up to eighteen cores. In addition to this, the graphics card hails from AMD’s new workstation-class Vega series and will allow up to 22 teraflops of half-precision floating point performance.
The iMac Pro will be available in December starting at $4,999 US. The price for New Zealand customers has not yet been announced.
