Apple's new iMac Pro rocks 18-core CPU, Radeon Vega GPU

Well, not really. While I personally do appreciate Apple's Voldemortish embrace of its pro user base, one aspect of it all still feels like a slap in the face.

Speaking of the non-pro laptop, Apple says, "With thin and light designs, powerful performance, wonderful displays and all-day battery life, Mac notebooks deliver the world's best portable computing experience". The company recently updated the Mac Pro with slightly newer processors, but aside from that minor upgrade, its high-end systems haven't been refreshed since 2013.

13-inch MacBook Pro starting at $1,299 and $1,799 with a Touch Bar respectively.

With the suspense over, it will be interesting how buyers of the 2017 MacBook Pro will react. Lastly, the brand has also updated the 13-inch MacBook Air with a 1.8 GHz processor.

Meanwhile, the 15-inch version is a small notch down in sharpness at 220ppi, due to its 2,880 x 1,800 pixels being spread across a larger screen. On paper, all these 7th generation processors offer higher boost clocks that should translate into better performance. In addition to announcing external GPU support with macOS High Sierra, the company also revealed that AMD GPUs will make their way into its Mac products, with the most notable example being Vega's inclusion with a new iMac Pro all-in-one. Beyond the processor, it's the only other thing Apple's changed. We're now testing the Core m3 version of the MacBook and will report on benchmark and battery life results in a future full review.




A solid chunk of Apple's WWDC opening keynote on Monday felt like a love letter to professional users. So, the prices for these iPads will be Rs.63,900, Rs 71,900 and Rs 87,900 respectively for the 64GB, 256GB and 512GB variants. Apple also packed beefier discrete graphics with extra video memory for the 15-inch MacBook Pro, while the 13-inch model got a new $1,299 configuration in the United States.

You can option the Radeon Pro Vega with up to 16GB of HBM2 memory, while Apple will offer up to an insane 128GB of 2666MHz DDR4 ECC RAM, and up to 4TB of SSD storage.

Those looking for a more powerful device with some extra oomph, however, should consider the beefier MacBook Pro, which also got neat upgrades.

If your daily tasks involve the most demanding work from your PC or you have an endless amount of cash stashed somewhere, iMac Pro is definitely one of the best options available right now. Termus teased the audience with the power of the new thermal architecture - a Dual-centrifugal fan solution which generates significantly more airflow than traditional iMac, an increase of 80% in cooling capacity.
