Getting a full-featured iMac Pro may cost $ 17,000

Apple revealed at the developers conference about the new iMac Pro computers will be available at a price starting from $ 5000 when choosing the default settings for the device, confirming the possibility of raising specifications easily.

By default, the device comes with an eight-core processor, 32 GB random access memory, 1 TB storage space and a Radeon Pro Vega graphics card with 8 GB memory.

Apple did not rule out the potential price differences when using higher-than-default technical specifications. ZDNET does the job by comparing Apple’s profit margins and market segments, saying that getting the iMac Pro at the highest technical specifications could cost up to $ 17,000.

According to the site, the use of a processor with 18 nuclei instead of the default, which provides eight nuclei would add about $ 4000 to the price of the computer. Adding random access memory from 32 GB to 128 GB would also add $ 2,700.

The use of the Pro Vega 16GB card to handle graphics is not possible at present due to the company’s lack of capacity. This is why the GTX Titan X cards were used by Nvidia, adding to the price of the computer about $ 2000.

Finally, the site confirmed that changing the hard drive from 1 terabyte to 4 terabytes would cost $ 3,600, bringing the total price of the computer to $ 17,000 instead of $ 5,000.

Apple and some specialists have considered the iMac Pro to be the most powerful in the company’s history and Macs.
