Apple Starts Shipments of the First iMac Pro Orders
Customers who placed the order for their iMac Pro early are receiving great news from Apple as their premium machines have started to ship out.
According to Reports, Apple’s iMac Pro Units Could Show up in Retail Stores This Week
Sources close to the matter claim that the base model units of the iMac Pro, which costs $4,999 are in Shanghai and will be awaiting the final release from the clearing agency.
The specifications of the machine include a 27-inch 5K display which will be shipping in a sleek gray enclosure. You will not have to purchase separate peripherals because the desktop will be arriving with a space gray Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2.
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.
If you’re concerned about thermal performance, do note that the improved cooling design of the iMac Pro delivers up to 80 percent more cooling capacity as opposed to a traditional iMac. 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.
Not just this, but you also get a 10-Gigabit Ethernet port, four USB-A 3.0 ports, an SD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Thankfully Apple managed to retain the headphone jack in the machine. In addition, you also get a 1080p front camera, stereo speakers, four microphones, an 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter, and Bluetooth 4.2 for your troubles.
