For your $4,999 iMac Pro, you get an 8-core processor, 32GB of DDR4 ECC memory, which is more reliable than your regular memory sticks. You also get 1TB of PCIe SSD storage and a Radeon Pro Vega 56 graphics processor with 8GB of HBM2 memory.

For the I/O, you get four Thunderbolt 3 ports, with a single one of these ports being able to drive two 5K displays or four 4K displays at 60Hz at the same time.
