AMD Radeon Pro 500 Series Launches

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

Apple also today updated MacBook® and MacBook Pro® with faster processors, added faster SSDs to MacBook and introduced a new 13-inch MacBook Pro configuration. These have been given faster processors, faster storage options, brighter Retina displays and Thunderbolt 3.

Previously, the 5K 27-inch iMac sat on top of Apple's range and while the rest of the iMac line-up have received some upgrades, the iMac Pro is now the pinnacle. All of the new iMacs sport Itel's Kelby Lake processors up to 4.2 GHz, which can support a maximum of 32GB of RAM on the 21.5-inch and 64GB on the 27-inch. You'll also get four Thunderbolt 3 ports so you can connect two high-performance RAID arrays and two 5K displays (44 million pixels for those keeping score) at the same time.

APPLE HAS LAUNCHED a bunch of new Mac hardware at WWDC, including an upcoming iMac packing a "workstation-class" 18-core Intel CPU and AMD Radeon Vega GPU.

The 21.5-inch model will have Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 for a graphics speed boost of up to 80 percent.

Prices will start at £1,050 for the base 21.5-inch model, at £1,250 for the 4K 21.5-inch model, and at £1,750 for the iMac Retina 5K 27-inch model.

One piece of bad news for the people that have been waiting for this for years is that you'll have to wait a little bit more. The iMac pro is in a lovely space gray finish and boasts impressively powerful statistics.

The on-going annual developer conference, WWDC 2017 by Apple, has revealed some of the interesting announcements that were anticipated for quite some time by the tech fraternity. The Radeon Pro 500 Series graphics deliver the "optimal combination of high performance and cool + quiet operation" says AMD. 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). The new iMac Pro is scheduled to ship in December starting at $4,999.

Apple is expected to unveil the new iPad Pro this week, but it seems that the redesigned version of the iMac and MacBook lineups won't hit the shelves until 2018. We reengineered the entire system and designed an entirely new thermal architecture to pack extraordinary performance. And for half-precision computation, ideal for machine learning, iMac Pro delivers up to a 22 Teraflops of performance.
