The iMac Pro isn't particularly upgradable either, which is why Apple is also working on a successor, which should be coming in the next couple of years.

Built around a 27-inch 5K (5120×2880) 500-nit display supporting P3 color space, the iMac Pro is being released to serve the pro market as we wait for Apple to unveil a completely new Mac Pro.

These emails ask for specific customizations, including storage, RAM, and GPU needs. Apple's announced starting price for the system is $4,999.

Either way, the new iMac Pro is here.

Pushing all the graphics on the 5K display is the AMD Radeon Pro Vega with 8GB of HBM2, enabling the device to fetch data at up to 400GB per second and pushing up to 11 teraflops of power.

Savage was injured when he was driven to the ground on a hit by Elvis Dumervil with about nine minutes left in the second. Despite being taken to the injury tent to be evaluated, Savage came back into the game on the Texans' next possession.

The iMac Pro will be available in 8-, 10-, and 18-core Xeon SKUs, offering a total of 16-, 20- and 36-threads for completing your most intense multi-threaded applications. And we did it without adding a millimeter to its iconic all-in-one design. The iMac Pro is meant for those who edit and render 4K videos regularly, or render a lot of sophisticated 3D content.

Apple gave the new machines to some of these types of users to try out for a week or so before the launch.

The high price of iMac Pro is the only barrier which can stop people from moving to Windows where they can get many useful features at pretty low prices. The product page says iMac Pro CPUs will come bearing as much as 42 MB of cache, a number that we figure applies to the 18-core version.

The company later contacted customers via email and confirmed that the official iMac Pro release date will be Thursday, Dec. 14, according to CNBC.
