Apple Announces iMac Pro to Begin Shipping December 14th

Apple has made the iMac Pro available to order, but since we already know all the details about its specifications, there's one particular aspect I'd like to focus on: the iMac Pro contains new Apple-developed silicon.

While the Mac Pro remains stagnant in its development with a completely modular redesign promised sometime next year, Apple is finally ready to ship the iMac Pro this Thursday.

Built around a 27-inch 5K (5120×2880) 500-nit display supporting P3 color space, the iMac Pro is being released to serve the pro market as we wait for Apple to unveil a completely new Mac Pro. If that wasn't enough, the iMac Pro will also have up to 128 GB of ECC DDR4 2666MHz RAM and up to 4 TB of onboard storage. Apple's announced starting price for the system is $4,999.

Graphics and GPU compute capability come courtesy of AMD's Radeon Pro Vega silicon. The iMac Pro is meant for those who edit and render 4K videos regularly, or render a lot of sophisticated 3D content. However, real-world benchmarks for these brand-new chips won't be widely available until the iMac Pro starts showing up on users' desktops.

Have you been saving up for the iMac Pro? By having a dialogue with Apple's sales staff, regarding specs and options, the buyers are able to get a better idea about pricing. The whole machine is decked out in a Space Grey finish and includes an Apple Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2.

Apple's website was updated Tuesday to give a release date: December 14. That may change in the future, but unless you plan on buying a new iMac Pro, your best shot at getting an à la carte black Lightning cable might be through a reseller like eBay.
