IMac Pro details and release date come into focus

Apple's iMac Pro to Arrive in 'A Matter of Days'

New iMac Pro Could Launch This Week

Apple is including a black Lightning cable along with its new iMac Pro. Prices start at $4999 for the base configuration.

Specifically, the $4,999 all-in-one desktop computer will feature a pro-level Intel Xeon processor, up to 18 cores and AMD's Radeon Vega graphics.

There hasn't been a proper, balls to the wall Mac since 2013, which hasn't aged well due to its lack of upgrade options.

Surprise! Along with the already announced 18-core iMac Pro, a 14-core model will be available, too. The real question is whether it's capable enough to keep pros from not going over to Windows, where they've traditionally been able to get power per dollar. The hard drive is 4TB and the Redeon Vega GPU comes with 16GB of RAM. We've been expecting a December launch since the initial announcement, though Apple has been quiet on that front in recent months.

"T$3 he iMac Pro is a graphics powerhouse-I continually marveled at how crisp and clean everything was rendered with no apparent overhead or impact on performance", writes aerospace engineer Craig Hunter.

Most notably, Caleb Sasser was given a few days to play around with Apple's upcoming iMac Pro and took to Twitter to relay a brand new T2 chip. Although the company stops short of specifying how much of that space is covered, previous iMacs offered 100% coverage, so it's likely that the Pro model will follow suit. The Thunderbolt ports are joined by a smattering of USB 3.0 Type-A connectors, audio jacks, a card reader, and a 10-Gigabit Ethernet port. It has 802.11ac WiFi built in, along with Bluetooth 4.2. The company gave the first access to iMac to Marques Brownlee who posted the first hands-on video of iMac Pro.
