The Final Cut Pro X 10.4 software update was released alongside the new iMac Pro, which Apple first announced at its WWDC conference in June. Built for professionals who require heavy duty workloads on their computers, the iMac Pro comes with a extremely premium price tag, but shouldn't disappoint its users at all.

If you demand more from your machine, or simply like to spend inordinate amounts of money on processing power, Apple can bump up those stats a little more: for an eye-watering $20,743, you can pick up 4TB of storage, 128GB of memory and an animation-level 18-core processor.

Given the hardware that makes an iMac valuable - things like the all-in-one body and the lovely P3-colour screen - we can certainly see why Apple turned to its beloved desktop machine to make its new generation of the Mac Pro, and it has gone above and beyond to make it more than just another iMac.

If you get the maxed-out iMac Pro, it won't ship for 6 to 8 weeks, or sometime in February. Dubbed the most powerful iMac ever, the iMac Pro produces workstation class performance, and packs quite the punch with its high end specs.

Boasting a notable 22 Teraflops of performance, Apple claims the new iMac Pro is ideal for machine learning.

Mrs May was concerned that unless ministers controlled the manner of Britain's departure from the European Union the process would not be "orderly and smooth".

3-D designers can visualise huge 3-D models and render scenes up to 3.4 times faster. "While the iMac Pro offers much faster compile times (2.5 times the other iMac in some cases), the multiple cores create some impressive multitasking opportunities, too".

The system isn't designed for your regular family, and while power is the name of the game, even gamers would have a hard time justifying this, as Apple goes right back to the heart of what made it popular with creatives back in the day, essentially building a Mac Pro inside of an iMac. "The display is a 27" Retina 5K unit (5120×2880) that pushes a brightness of 500 nits.

For comparison, the old Mac Pro ran $3,999 for a 3GHz Xeon CPU, 16GB of DDR3-1866, a 256GB SSD, and a pair of GCN 1.0 D700 GPUs. This is the first time that the tech company has sold its own version of the cable. This new 0.8 meter Thunderbolt 3 cable can be had here for $39 - a reasonable price for an Apple-branded product.

After years of fending off questions from its increasingly unhappy workstation customers, Apple has finally released an updated professional Mac.
