Apple first showed off the iMac Pro during Worldwide Developer Conference in June. The iMac Pro comes in a different Space Gray finish, and with other features aimed for professionals who rely on fast computers. Apple touted the graphics performance for real-time 3D rendering and high-frame-rate VR work, claiming 11 TFLOPS of power, or for machine-learning applications where it said the Vega can deliver 22 TFLOPS at half-precision.

That suggests that Apple will start selling their new iMac Pro some time this week, it could possibly go on sale on Friday, although this has yet to be confirmed. The iMac Pro isn't particularly upgradable either, which is why Apple is also working on a successor, which should be coming in the next couple of years.

The Apple iMac Pro will be available for purchase starting December 14. The chip can fetch data at up to 400GB per second. It can be configured with as much as 16 GB of VRAM and 4TB of storage. The computer can also be transformed into a bigger workstation.




In short, with the T2 bearing more responsibility than its predecessor, the iMac Pro's primary processor will be able to handle primary computing tasks far more quickly. The screens amount to a total of 44 million pixels. It also comes with a beautifully crisp 27-inch Retina 5K display, ideal working on advanced graphics editing, virtual reality content creation and real-time 3D rendering. HiRise Pro is the stand worthy of supporting all current iMacs, the new iMac Pro and high-end 4K / 5K displays (with a base width of 10-inches or less).

There's no indication that Apple will postpone the launch. However, there is some speculation that the chips in the iMac Pro have been downlocked slightly, perhaps to satisfy thermal requirements of the system's all-in-one design.
