IMac Pro: Apple releases its most expensive computer - starting at £4899

IMac Pro: Apple releases its most expensive computer - starting at £4899

It offers enough compute power for real-time 3D rendering, immersive VR, intensive developer workflows, high megapixel photography, complex simulations, massive audio projects and real-time 4K and 8K video editing.

Today the iMac Pro went up for pre-order and Apple has updated Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X to go along with it.

With next-generation processors, a stunning Retina 5K display, the most powerful graphics ever in a Mac, super-fast storage and advanced I/O [input/output], iMac Pro is created to handle the most demanding pro workflows and is the first all-in-one built from the ground up to deliver true workstation-class performance.

The 27-inch matte gray computer comes with either an 8-core, 10-core or 18-core Xeon processor, and it has up to 22 teraflops of graphics power.

That's not all. If you want an extra matching space gray Magic Mouse 2 and a Magic Trackpad 2, that'll cost you another $149.

In terms of graphics, the new Mac has the Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU that by default comes with 8GB of HBM2 memory on the base model, going up to Radeon Pro Vego 64 GPU with 16GB of HBM2 memory. The iMac Pro is Apple's solution in the interim.

Although the Mac Pro hasn't been updated since 2013, its next iteration will be available in 2018.

iMac Pro 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.

Developers can run multiple virtual machines and test environments, and compile code up to 2.4 times faster.

Photographers can work with enormous files and perform image processing up to 4.1 times faster. Apple has never been one to shy away from putting high premiums on its products-its newest smartphone starts at $1,000, after all-and its new computer is no exception.

"iMac Pro combines the incredible design of the iMac with the most powerful workstation architecture we've ever built", John Ternus, Apple's vice president of hardware engineering, said in a news release.

Dubbed T2, Apple's custom Mac silicon brings a new level of integration and security to the desktop machine.

If you buy an iMac Pro, the soonest you can get it is December 27.
