Apple WWDC 2017 Conference Revealed New iMac Models With Intel Kaby Lake

The iMac Pro has been designed keeping in mind the necessities of professionals who need to work with extensive amounts of data sets and use cases, which require enormous processing power and memory capabilities.

The iMac Pro with two additional 5K displays.

John Ternus begins his presentation by talking about the display. The company said the screen is also 43 percent brighter than its previous models. Yes, let that sink in. But there has still been some big news for fans of the company's iMac and MacBook lines. Fusion drives are standard on all 27-inchers and SSDs will go up to 2TB at twice the current rates.

Both the 10.5-inch and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro have USB 3 circuits for quicker file transfers, whereas the 9.7-incher anomalously had the slower and older USB 2 in a device aimed at graphics, photo and video work. The regular 21.5 inched variant gets the Iris Plus 640 GPU, and the 21.5-inched 4K variant gets Radeon Pro 555 & 560 GPUs.

Apple's iMac line also got a much-needed refresh. No doubt there'll be furious debate over price comparisons, but the headline news is incontrovertible - Apple is back in the serious workstation business with a bang.

The iMac 21.5-inch is priced at $1099, a 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display will cost you $1299, and a 27-inch iMac Retina 5K is priced at $1799. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro rocks a native resolution of 2224x1668 (264 PPI) with 20% more screen real estate over the 9.7-inch model, and 40% smaller bezels. However, it comes out in a "Space Grey" color.

The iMac Pro's starting configuration will be $4,999. For graphics, there's a cutting-edge AMD Radeon Pro Vega with up to 16GB of VRAM and 400Gbps of bandwidth to deliver 11 teraflops of single precision compute power, but which can also do half-precision compute for 22Tflops.

Additionally, the new machines bring a host of minor improvements, including an improved 1080 FaceTime camera, UHS-II SDXC card slot, and Bluetooth 4.2.

A 5K display, with the processing to power two other 5K displays simultaneously.

An absolute beast from all fronts. RAM will range from 32GB to 128GB. Some of the variants not only received beefed up internals but even secured a price cut in an attempt to lure more users towards its integrated desktop computer devices.
