Description for Apple iMac Pro MQ2Y2 27-Inch 5120 x 2880 5K Retina Display (2017) Desktop (Intel Xeon W Processor 3.2 Ghz 8 Core, 32GB DDR4, 1TB SSD, Radeon Pro Vega 56 8G HBM2) | MQ2Y2
Power to the pro.
Pros love iMac. So we created one just for you. It’s packed with the most powerful graphics and processors ever in a Mac, along with the most advanced storage, memory, and I/O — all behind a breathtaking Retina 5K display in a sleek, all-in-one design. For everyone from photographers to video editors to 3D animators to musicians to software developers to scientists, iMac Pro is ready to turn your biggest ideas into your greatest work.
Up to 18 cores in an iMac. No, that’s not a typo.
An iMac with 4 cores is remarkable enough. But an iMac with 8, 10, 14, or 18 cores is an entirely different creature. Add Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.5GHz, and iMac Pro has the power and flexibility to balance multicore processing with single-thread performance. With new AVX-512 vector instructions and a new cache architecture, the processor handles even more data — even more quickly. Which means you can render images, edit up to 8K video, manipulate photos, create real-time audio effects, or compile your next five-star app — all at lightning speed.
Vega graphics. The beast behind the beauty.
Featuring Radeon Pro Vega graphics, iMac Pro delivers the best workstation-class graphics of any Mac. The first Mac with Vega architecture features up to 16GB of High Bandwidth Memory, which helps deliver a major jump in performance — up to two times faster than any other iMac GPU and up to three times faster than the GPU in Mac Pro. This translates to higher frame rates for VR, real-time 3D rendering, more lifelike special effects, and gameplay at max settings. It also supports both single- and half-precision computing, so operations that don’t require a full 32 bits of precision can be performed twice as fast. How fast? Up to 22 teraflops fast.
More memory for massive projects.
With four channels of memory, iMac Pro can accommodate up to 128GB. So you can visualize, simulate, and render huge 3D models. Create multiple test environments for cross-platform development. And keep numerous apps open at the same time. It’s all powerful. For all the things you want to do.
High-performance storage. Load faster. Launch faster.
Up to 4TB of all-flash storage lets you work on large 4K and HD projects regardless of codec. And with up to 3GB/s throughput, loading huge files and launching apps is faster than ever.
Serious I/O. For serious work.
As you’d expect from a pro machine, there are plenty of high-speed ports to create a high-performance workstation. Four Thunderbolt 3 ports let you connect two 5K monitors — for 44 million pixels total — and transfer data at a blazing 40Gb/s. And there’s something you probably didn’t expect in an iMac: 10Gb Ethernet. So sharing files between desktops, or working with high-performance network storage, is up to 10 times faster.
Retina 5K display. Dream in a billion colors.
It almost goes without saying: If it’s an iMac, it will have a gorgeous display. And iMac Pro doesn’t disappoint. In fact, its 27-inch screen is our best ever, with 500 nits of brightness across its 14.7 million pixels. It’s as if the sleek, all-in-one design disappears behind the stunning screen — so you can focus on your content. Along with P3 color and support for a billion colors, iMac Pro delivers spectacular, true-to-life images.
All-in-one design. More creative freedom.
iMac Pro puts the power of a workstation behind a stunning Retina 5K display, in a sleek enclosure just 5 mm wide at its edge. With your whole system powered by a single cable, your workspace stays free of clutter. It’s a beautifully efficient design that lets you focus all your attention on what you’re creating — not what you’re creating with.
Advanced thermal management. Cool.
Packing all that performance into such a slim all-in-one design required a new approach to cooling the system. We redesigned the thermal architecture of iMac Pro with innovative dual blowers, a high-capacity heatsink, and extra venting. The result? Almost 75 percent more airflow and an 80 percent increase in system thermal capacity. Which lets iMac Pro handle 500 watts — 67 percent more power than the 27-inch iMac.
All-new speakers. Make some noise.
The enhanced stereo speakers in iMac Pro deliver broad frequency response, rich bass, and more volume. So you’ll be able to hear that crashing cymbal, multilayered effect, or sample-based sound, all with remarkable fidelity. And with four beamforming mics, your voice is heard loud and clear over any background noise.
Accessories with a dark side.
Available exclusively at the time of your iMac Pro purchase, these new space gray accessories are wireless, rechargeable, and beautiful to behold. The new Magic Keyboard includes a numeric keypad, and to go with it you can choose either the Magic Mouse 2 or the Magic Trackpad 2.
