Without much fanfare, Apple today updated some of its sites around the world saying that its newest machine, the iMac Pro, will be available to all consumers in these countries (who have at least $ 5,000 in their pocket, this) from this Thursday, the 14th.
As expected, along with the announcement, the company sent some computer units to testers, bloggers and YouTubers selected could give their first impressions of him. The verdict? , my friends and my friends, the iMac Pro really It is a formidable creation in terms of processing.
If we want to compare numbers, we can get an idea in the first impressions video of the YouTuber Marques “MKBHD” Brownlee, which like all other testers received the mid-range version of the iMac Pro, with 10-core Intel Xeon processor and 3GHz frequency (with Turbo boost at 4.5GHz). Brownlee ran the Geekbench tool on the computer and scored a multi-core score of 37,434.
If that doesn't tell you much, suffice it to say that the number 45% larger than the top-end model of the Mac Pro (which, yes, is four years old but still a super machine) and 93% higher than the iMac 5K top of the line. Yes, this is the most powerful Mac ever and look we're not even talking about its most expensive version!
Numbers, however, aren't just what makes a computer go so fast, so maybe we'd better listen (or read) the real-life experiences of these testers, right? For impressions hit: in a text on your blog, the director and photographer Vincent Laforet stated that all of his usual tasks (8K video editing, drone 4K captures, 6K 3D virtual reality content or 50 megapixel RAW photos, for example) were completed about two or three times faster on iMac Pro in compared to your current working machines (an iMac 5K and a latest generation MacBook Pro). According to him, the normal jump of speed between two generations of the same computer is around 20% or 30%; Here, however, we see an absurd jump of 200% to 300%.
Who also did an interesting test was the developer Craig A. Hunter. He ran a computational fluid dynamics study on a number of computers, and the intermediate iMac Pro, as expected, completed the task most quickly in just 128 seconds. See the chart with all the machines and their respective times below:
More impressions, reviews and critiques of the iMac Pro will naturally come to the bubbles when the machine becomes widely available later in the morning. From what we have seen so far, however, we already know that it is truly colossal; It is a shame that you can only use it while you are alive because surely to buy such a beauty in Brazil, only selling most of our vital organs.
