When Apple released the very first iMac with its revolutionary all-in-one enclosure in the late 1990s, it marked the beginning of an entirely new kind of aesthetic for computers. The iMac Pro is a consistent advancement for users with demanding tasks, an outstandingly powerful work tool that fascinates with an elegant space-grey enclosure. Based on a re-engineered system and newly designed thermal architecture, the design realises the goal to integrate extraordinary technical performance into a very quiet enclosure. The iMac Pro is equipped with a 27” Retina 5K display and Radeon Pro Vega graphics card that offers users excellent image quality and workstation-level graphics for higher frame rates and more realistic special effects. It thus presents itself as an impressive platform for professional editing of images and videos up to 8K, virtual reality content creation and real-time 3D rendering. With up to 18 cores and Turbo Boost speeds of up to 4.5 GHz, the iMac Pro has the power and flexibility to optimise both multi-core processing and single-threaded performance. The iMac Pro is ideal for photographers, video editors and 3D animators, as well as musicians, software developers and scientists – allowing them all to turn their ideas into outstanding works.
