Apple unveils new iMac Pro, refreshes hardware of current iMacs


The new iPad Pro that's available in the USA today offers a new customizable dock for your apps that blurs the line with this common 0macOS feature. The base 21.5” model starts at $1,100 and if you want a 4K screen, then its $1,300.

The iMac Pro (not to be confused with the cylinder-shaped Mac Pro) is a powerful all-in-one desktop computer created to "address the concerns of video editors looking to work with 4K or 8K video that need workstation-level power", The Guardian reports. This fall Intel systems with i9 Core with 10 to 18 cores will ship for Windows PCs as will AMD Threadripper systems with up to 16 cores. The MacBook costs $1,299, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro costs $1,499. Graphics will get a bump too.

In terms of design, the only notable thing that the bigger 10.5 inch version brings to the table is the fact that it's considerably heavier than the smaller 9.7 inch version.

An eye-catching feature - literally - are Apples best displays, ever! "The sleeve offers new 10.5" iPad users a way to store their Apple Pen.

Meanwhile both 12.9-inch iPad Pro slates come in at 306mm x 221mm x 6.9mm.

One key feature: autoplay blocking. Also, you can stick as much as 128GB ECC RAM and 4TB SSD (3GB/s).

The larger screen is "a little brighter" and runs at a "faster refresh rate", which the site says should make physical inputs, such as scrolling, "even better". For consumers, it means that the RAM in the iMac Pro won't be officially user-upgradeable.

Who needs a Mac Pro when an iMac offers better performance and an awesome screen?

Apple has embedded 27-inch Retina 5K display with support for 1 billion colors in new iMac Pro.

Team Ninja's Final Fantasy Fighting Game Comes To PS4 Early Next Year
It will be " Final Fantasy III's" Floating Continent, which will be added in a June 15 update to the arcade version of the game. Perhaps most intriguing is the fact that a unique "bravery" combat system will be used, helping to separate luck from skill.

There's also an update to the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

Buyers will be given 64GB of stage as standard - double that of the outgoing model.

Apple has announced hardware upgrades across its range of MacBook computers.

The platform consists of three high-performance cores and another three aimed at power optimization, with Apple reckoning the iPad Pro 2 should see a 40% improvement in performance as a result.

Both previous iPad Pro models feature Apple's 64-bit A9X chip with an integrated M9 motion coprocessor.

iMac Pro features 10Gb Ethernet for up to 10 times faster networking.

If you own a 2015 iMac, the answer is more nuanced, but if your machine is pre-2015, get yourself some modern hardware. Plus, Thunderbolt 3 has replaced Thunderbolt 2.

U.S. chipmaker AMD on Tuesday unveiled a high performance, power-efficient "Radeon Pro 500" series graphics for Apple iMac. This made them ill-suited for gaming-concerns about many games not supporting macOS aside-simply because the devices weren't powerful enough.
