Apple fastest and powerful Mac ever built from the ground up, the iMac Pro, has officially gone on sale at the iStore in South Africa.
The preview for Apple’s latest all-in-one desktop aimed at professionals, was previewed at the iStore in Sandton on Friday.
Unveiled in June at Apple’s developer conference, the iMac Pro features Xeon processors up to 18 cores, 22 Teraflops of graphics performance, and a 27-inch Retina 5K display.
The iMac Pro is incredibly thin at just 5mm at its edge. It comes in a new space grey finish with a matching Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse and optional Magic Trackpad.
The new desktop also supports up to 4TB of SSD and up to 128GB of ECC memory, and with four Thunderbolt 3 ports, can connect up to two high-performance RAID arrays and two 5K displays at the same time. For the first time ever on a Mac, iMac Pro features 10 GB Ethernet for up to 10 times faster networking.
While the iMac Pro delivers incredible compute power for real-time 3-D rendering, immersive VR, intensive developer workflows, high megapixel photography, complex simulations, massive audio projects and real-time 4K and 8K video editing, it is also Apple’s most expensive computer.
An Apple spokesperson told Radio Islam, there has been phenomenal response to the new iMac Pro with many customers placing orders and snapping them up.
The iMac Pro is available from 12 January at most iStore’s starting at the retail price of R 84,999.
