iMac Pro is an all-in-one personal computer and workstation designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple Inc. starting December 14, 2017.[1] Unlike the Mac Pro, Apple claims the iMac Pro is the most powerful Mac ever made.[2] The iMac Pro comes with a custom Apple T2 chip (which stores encrypted keys) and a custom version of macOS High Sierra which allows the user to lock down the booting process (using the Startup Security Utility).[3][4][5]

History[edit]

The iMac Pro was introduced at WWDC on June 5, 2017 and was released in December 2017, with a starting price of US$4999. Some of its selling points include an 8-, 10-, 14-, or 18-core Intel Xeon processor, 5K video, AMD Vega graphics, ECC memory, and NBASE-T Ethernet.

On March 19, 2019, iMac Pro also became available with options for 256 GB of memory and a Vega 64X GPU.
