Radeon Pro 500 Series for iMac: Powerful Performance for Breathtaking 5K Computing

Apple's Greg Joswiak speaks about the iPad Pro during an announcement of new products at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose CA Monday June 5

Nearly lost in the landslide of product announcements at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote was the reveal the MacBook Pro received an important update: The new laptops have the same design as the previous version, but the laptops feature new processors that should provide a speed boost.

Graphics will be provided by a Radeon Vega with up to 16GB of VRAM memory that can power multiple 4K displays, or up to 44 million pixels at any given time, if you can find a screen that large. Apple wasn't actually allowing press to get hands-on with the new machine, but we did get an opportunity to get up close and personal with some video of the new iMac Pro (below).

Apple has confirmed that its iMac Pro would start at a whopping $4,999.

Perhaps unexpectedly, the next most exciting unit on display was the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, running iOS 11. Instead of the miniDisplayPort connections seen on previous iMacs, the new models will boast USB-C with Thunderbolt 3, supporting all of your USB-C capable accessories, and opening up high-powered options for RAID storage and external 4K & 5K displays. An all-in-one PC with considerably more oomph than even the new Kaby Lake-powered iMacs, the Pro is built to be fast in every respect.

There's also updates to the "standard" iMac range. A MacBook Air refresh isn't a fail-safe bet, but previous reports indicate that Apple's most affordable notebook is getting a new processor as well. They are going to need that cooling too, the iMac Pro starts at an 8 core Xeon processor and goes all the way to a configuration that supports up to an 18 core Xeon processor. It is also worth noting that the AiO desktop would support up to 128GB of ECC memory. The new iMac Pro will be available in December of this year.

After unveiling the refreshed iMac desktops and MacBook Pro, AMD's Senior Vice President and Chief Architect disclosed the benchmark to the public.

Apple's announcement on Monday comes just two months after exec Phil Schiller said that the company was "in the process of completely rethinking the Mac Pro".
