Apple iMac Pro to go on sale on December 14

Apple's new iMac Pro in Space Gray has a starting price of $4,999 and sports a Retina 5K display.

Translation: it's a hulking great mega beast with astonishing power, a lovely screen and incredible graphics.

'This will be our fastest and most powerful Mac ever, which brings workstation-class computing to iMac for the first time, ' said John Ternus, Apple's vice president of Hardware Engineering.

Apple is including a black Lightning cable along with its new iMac Pro. Apple is yet to announce more details on the pricing based on configurations. Some users may remain disappointed that Nvidia GPUs with their CUDA hardware acceleration aren't available, but Final Cut Pro users should find that AMD's OpenCL acceleration works especially well to speed FCP X exports. It's quite clear that Apple isn't kidding around.

However, if you feel like going all out, the machine can be configured with an 18-core Xeon, 128GB ECC memory, 4TB SSD, and Radeon Pro Vega 64 with 16GB HBM2, although the exact cost of this configuration is unknown. The iMac shown in the video happens to be a 10-core iMac Pro and if you want to get your hands on the14-core or the 18-core, you'll have to wait until the next year. It has 802.11ac WiFi built in, along with Bluetooth 4.2.

Apple cited the need for a little extra time to flawless both. Although the company stops short of specifying how much of that space is covered, previous iMacs offered 100% coverage, so it's likely that the Pro model will follow suit.

The iMac Pro's specs are outrageous, and so is the price tag. But for smaller shops and one-person operations running FCP and working with 4K video, this system likely hits the price/performance sweet spot.
