However, you better have some money saved up because starting at $5,000, this thing won't be cheap-and that's before you consider that the iMac Pro can be configured with up to an 18-core Intel Xeon processor, 128GB of error-checking RAM, and 4TB of SSD storage, all crammed into a big 27-inch Retina 5K display.
In order to cool down all these powerful hardware, Apple has implemented a new thermal system that is able to provide up to 80% more cooling capacity than a standard iMac.
According to Apple, it's people working with "real-time 3D rendering, immersive VR, intensive developer workflows, high megapixel photography, complex simulations, massive audio projects and real-time 4K and 8K video editing" who need that kind of processing power. Based on a few comparisons to roughly equivalent Windows systems, the folks over at Apple Insider found that many iMac Pro competitors often costed slightly more than Apple's new high-end all-in-one, but they weren't that far off. You can find out more information about the new iMac over at Apple at thee link below. As per their promise, the new generation iMac Pro is going official from December 14.
Apple also released Motion 5.4 with 360 VR motion graphics creation support, and Compressor 4.4 with 360 VR delivery, HDR, and HEVC support.
Version 10.4 also supports the HTC VIVE VR headset for realtime viewing and editing.
The update also includes powerful tools for professional color grading.
And, "with support for the most popular HDR formats, Final Cut Pro gains access to an expanded range of brightness levels to deliver incredibly realistic images". Today, with more than 2 million seats, Final Cut Pro X is the most popular version of the software ever and is used by professional video editors to create incredible works of art, from award-winning Hollywood feature films and commercials, to worldwide broadcasts and the world's most popular YouTube videos.
Faster, higher quality optical flow analysis built on Metal, Apple's advanced graphics technology.
