27-incher with Intel 18-core Xeon and Radeon Pro Vega

During its WWDC 2017 keynote, Apple unveiled what it claims is its most powerful computer ever, the new iMac Pro.

Based on the 27-inch 5K iMac design, with wide-color (P3) 5120x2880 resolution 500-nits panel, the iMac Pro will pack some serious punch with 8-, 10- or even an 18-core Xeon CPU (most likely Skylake) and Radeon Pro Vega 56 or Pro Vega 64 graphics with 8GB or 16GB of HBM2 memory and up to 11 TFLOPs of single-precision and 22 TFLOPs of half-precision compute performance.

The rest of the specifications include up to 128GB of 2666MHz DDR4 ECC memory and up to 4TB of PCIe SSD storage. It also comes with four Thunderbolt 3 ports and 10Gb Ethernet, advanced thermal management with dual-blowers, massive heatsink and extra venting, new speakers for more sound and new space gray accessories that will go well with the looks of the dark iMac Pro.

Unfortunately, Apple is still holding out most of the details as the Xeon and Radeon Vega iMac Pro won't start shipping until December, with a starting price of US $4,999.
