Apple Announces New iMacs, Updated MacBooks

08 June 2017, 02:08 | Ricardo Garza

Apple upgraded most of its Mac computers on Monday, including a powerful new offering for professional users, showing renewed commitment to a product line that critics say it neglected amid lacklustre growth. Now there are Kaby Lake processors from Intel, better AMD Radeon Pro graphics, faster solid state storage but oddly enough, you still can't go higher than 16GB of system memory.

The 21.5-inch models can now fit up to 32 GB of RAM, with up to 64 GB available on the 27-inch models. The I/O upgrade involves two USB-C connectors that support Thunderbolt 3. "We're also increasing CPU and SSD speed on MacBook, adding faster processors and making faster graphics standard on our 15-inch MacBook Pro and introducing a new £1,249 13-inch MacBook Pro". Apple has also updated its 13-inch MacBook Air with a 1.8 GHz processor.

Faster AMD Radeon Pro graphics cards are also available for the iMacs, and the hybrid solid-state/spinning disk Fusion drives are now standard.

The Radeon Pro 580, coupled with software and API improvements coming as part of the next version of macOS, "High Sierra" (no, seriously), was specifically called out as being ready to power a new era of VR experiences and content creation on the Mac, thanks to Apple partnerships with Valve (Steam VR), Unity, and Epic (Unreal Engine 4).

In addition, Apple Inc. The display resolutions on the all-in-ones are staying the same, but the underlying technology is getting a boost to provide 500 nits of brightness, which should lead to a 43 percent increase in brightness over the older models.

These laptops weigh 2lbs and are 13.1mm thin.




Featuring next-generation Intel Xeon processors up to 18 cores, iMac Pro is created to handle the most demanding pro workflows.

It will feature up to 18-Core Processors, 22 Teraflops of GPU Performance, Fast Storage and Advanced I/O.

Although the majority of Mac updates are based on performance, Apple revealed it is working to release one new device by the end of this year. That includes four Thunderbolt 3 ports, allowing users to connect up to two separate 5K monitors while connecting two RAIDs. Ternus claimed that the new system is up to 3 times faster than the previous generation in terms of graphics, while the 27-inch will be 50 percent faster.

Vega's inclusion is the most surprising aspect of the iMac Pro. They also have larger caches, which means better performance with more complex data - whether large, multi-layered Photoshop files, 4K video or 3D scenes with huge textures.

But the computer's most aesthetically pleasing perk happens to be an all-new space gray finish alongside space gray accessories, which we've never seen from Apple before.
