10 things iMac Pro Can Do that No Other Macs are Capable Of
Visualize Massive 3D Models up 3.4 Times Faster
You can take the utmost advantage of the powerful iMac Pro to visualize huge 3D models and be able to render scenes up to 3.4 times faster. Equipped with Radeon Pro Vega graphics, iMac Pro provides incredible workstation-class graphics.
With Vega architecture, it features up to 16GB of High Bandwidth Memory that immensely boosts performance; up to two times faster than any other iMac GPU and up to three times faster than the GPU in Mac Pro.
It delivers higher frame rates for VR, real-time 3D rendering, remarkable special effects, and gameplay at max settings. The computer is compatible with both single- and half-precision computing.
Powered by four channels of memory, iMac Pro can accommodate up to 128GB, which enables it to visualize, simulate, and render huge 3D models. You can create multiple test environments for cross-platform development.
Compile Code Up To 2.4 Times Faster
You can run virtual machines and test environments on your computer with élan. It allows you to compile code up to 2.4 times faster.
Thanks to the 128 GB of lightning fast RAM, you can manipulate huge data sets. The iMac Pro can visualize data up to 5 times faster.
It supports up to 4TB of blazing fast 3 GB/s flash storage, up to 128GB of ECC memory, AMD's all-new Vega Pro 64 graphics with up to 16 GB of video RAM and up to 18-core Intel Xeon chips for workstation-grade performance.
4.1 Times Faster Image Processing
Image processing can be done up to 4.1 times faster on the iMac Pro. It will allow photographers to work with massive files more efficiently.
The iMac has 500 nits of brightness across the 14.7 million pixels. With P3 color and support for a billion colors, iMac is able to deliver stunning images.
Export Huge Multi-Track Projects Up To 4.6 Times Faster
You can export massive multi-track projects on the new machine up to 4.6 times faster. Besides, you will also be able to use up to 12.4 times plug-ins in their projects.
Export HEVC (H.265) video on iMac Three Times Faster
You can export HEVC (H.265) video on Mac three times faster. You will be able to edit up to eight streams of 4K video or edit 4.5K RED RAW footage as well as 8K ProRes 4444 video at full resolution without rendering.
The Mac can handle 8K video projects with multiple layered effects and filters without waiting.
The 8, 10, 14, or 18 cores bolster the speed of iMac up to 4.5GHz. It’s got the ability to balance multicore processing with single-thread performance.
The new AVX-512 vector instructions along with cache architecture, the processor is capable of handling data rapidly. It lets you render images, edit up to videos, manipulate photos, create real-time audio effects core with unparalleled speed.
Up to 4TB of all-flash storage
Boasting 4TB of all-flash storage, iMac Pro allows you to work on massive 4K and HD projects regardless of codec. Courtesy of 3GB/s throughput, loading large files and launching apps is incredibly fast.
Enormously Secure and Efficient Apple T2 Chip
iMac Pro comes with supremely advance Apple T2 chip. By redesigning and integrating a number of controllers found in other Mac systems ( for instance, system management controller, image signal processor, audio controller, and SSD controller), T2 makes the Mac more secure and capable.
T2 image signal processor works with the FaceTime HD camera offers more improved tone mapping, improved exposure control, and face detection–based auto exposure as well as auto white balance.
Thanks largely to the Secure Enclave coprocessor T2 offers the foundation for new encrypted storage and secure boot capabilities. The data on the SSD is encrypted with the help of top-notch AES hardware.
iMac Pro is fully capable of handling multiple streams of video. With up to 4TB of all-flash storage, it makes saving and loading humongous projects a lot faster.
Plenty of High-Speed Ports
The Mac has multiple high-speed ports that enable it to create a high-performance workstation. Using four Thunderbolt 3 ports, you can connect two 5K monitors.
It lets you transfer data at 40Gb/s. With the 10Gb Ethernet, you will be able to share files between desktops, or working with high-performance network storage up to 10 times faster.
Superior Cooling System
iMac Pro is packed with innovative dual blowers, a high-capacity heatsink, and extra venting. As a result, it delivers 75% more airflow and 80% increase in system thermal capacity that enables the Mac to handle 500 watts; 67 % more power than the 27-inch iMac.
The enhanced stereo speakers
The ultra-powerful stereo speakers in iMac Pro provide broad frequency response, rich bass, and more volume. The four high-capacity mics the offer crystal clear audio.
Finally, Apple has nailed it
Indeed, iMac Pro is designed to be a great asset for pro users. The starting price of the new iMac is $4,999, which goes up to over $13,000.
The robust innards justify the premium price tag, and it's undoubtedly the most powerful desktop machine Apple has ever built.
