That wraps things up for the new iMac Pro, and while the specs list isn’t quite that detailed just yet, you can expect more CPU information to surface as soon as the machine is officially available for sale in December.

While it will likely be out of the price range of most everyday folk, it definitely packs a lot more punch than any iMac or Mac Pro the pre-dates it and will leave computer geeks drooling when they lay eyes upon it.

    Hahahaha Apple is at least starting down the road to accommodate gamers. Sadly I already have a rig with better performance and I did not need to sell my kidney. Apple makes beautiful hard ware. They really just don’t keep up with technology. Now there software wastuff s cool.

    • This isn’t for gamers or people who build their own rigs. Its for major video editing studios or post houses that design 3d and VR. Those places aren’t looking to build something from scratch they need it to work right out the box without any real set up. If they need support they want to contact one company not 3 different companies. Check twitter for the people who actually do high end editing and GFX work and this has passed all their needs and then some, while also being $2500 cheaper than the high end PC equivalent.

    • Also they addressed the cooling with a new design
