....bumps iMac Pro processor.......


Apple Bumps iMac Pro to 10-Core Processor on Base Configuration

....Alongside the launch of updated iMacs, Apple today also made a minor update to the iMac Pro, equipping the base configuration with the 10-core 3.0 GHz Xeon W chip that was previously an upgrade option.

All other specs appear to remain the same, with 14-core and 18-core processors available as upgrades. The starting price also remains at $4,999, although the stepped-up base processor essentially results in an $800 price cut on upgraded models.



just a......bump.....?!

Do the iMac Pros have the excellent new microphones and audio tech in the new iMacs? This is not clear.

Not clear. But some more info on the iMac Pro upgrades, looks far more limited compared to the iMac.

The T2 chip seems like a headache to me. I guess there’s no way to avoid it now if you want a new system. Not that I would ever get an iMac.

I like my 2019 iMac. I think it's one of the best bang/buck Apple offers, if the hardware works for you. I assume the 2020 is even better.

Interesting, the new iMac can be ordered with up to 8TB SSD, but the iMac Pro is still only at 4TB.

Sure looks like the iMac Pro is just a speed bump. The new iMac is really an upgrade.

I just hate the concept. No interest in a monitor that can be used by only one computer, etc.

Yeah, but the most important question: did they make it thinner? [/sarcasm] RollingEyesSmiley5

Ok, I'll shut up now.

Apple does not make a lot of $$ off that excellent, built-in 5k monitor. Trust me - I did the comparison shopping. It's a fair deal.

They shouldn’t, given that it’s trash as soon as the computer crammed onto the back of it dies. It’s a really wasteful design, and as I said, the display cannot be used by other computers. So it’s of no interest to me.

Sure. I get it.

Thankfully, computers are far more reliable today.

And sadly, the mac option for a "headless" iMac doesnt exist. =(

I made the move in 2007, from G5s to 24" iMacs. (MPs were stupid expensive.) Never looked back. iMacs ever since.

My original 2007 24" iMac was still in use by my oldest until just recently. I gave her my hand me down 2010 iMac. Which still flys. 27" 2550 x 1440, w/2.93 i7, 32 GB ram and SSD. speedy.

Sure it does -- it's call the Mac mini. If the video card offerings on that device didn't suck for gaming, I would have purchased one the second the newest generation was released.



It is what it is.

And thats why its not a headless iMac. Not just gaming tho.

Maybe if there is a "late" 2020 mini with 10 gen chips + eGPU?
