Apple's Xeon and Vega powered iMac Pro launches this week

Apple's Xeon and Vega powered iMac Pro launches this week

Back at WWDC 2017 in June, Apple teased us with the iMac Pro, its most powerful desktop yet.

Apple's iMac Pro is available this Wednesday, but that doesn't necessarily mean you can get what you want on launch day.

If you've been holding out upgrading your computer in anticipation of the release of Apple's iMac Pro, there may still be a chance you could find one under your Christmas tree.

Apple's new iMac Pro in Space Gray has a starting price of $4,999 and sports a Retina 5K display.

The system comes packing 1 TB of internal SSD storage.

Several of Savage's teammates said they didn't notice anything different about him on the drive after he was injured, and T.J. However, Yates would later enter the game as Savage went to the locker room to be further evaluated for a concussion.

Interestingly, according to noted YouTuber Marques Brownlee, Apple is also furnishing iMac Pro buyers with a black lightning cable, which are now unavailable to buy separately.

Apple's going to start selling its latest iMac this Thursday for $4999. The new black Lightning cable charges up the iMac keyboard, mouse, and trackpad, along with any iPhone.

The iMac Pro uses AMD's Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU, which comes with 8 GB of HDM2 memory, as the baseline. As an absolute monster of a machine, the iMac Pro features specifications that are, frankly, a little more than overkill. What do you guys think of the iMac Pro? And we did it without adding a millimeter to its iconic all-in-one design. 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. The iMac Pro still has (yes!) a 3.5mm headphone jack.

There's no indication that Apple will postpone the launch. In this case, one might also wonder what Apple's margins are like on the low-end iMac Pro.

Apple's website was updated Tuesday to give a release date: December 14.
