Apple's new iMac Pro rocks 18-core CPU, Radeon Vega GPU

Apple's new iMac Pro rocks 18-core CPU, Radeon Vega GPU

Apple has announced that the new iMac will be available to order starting Monday via apple.com, and will be available to buy in Apple Stores starting on Wednesday. The MacBook too has received Kaby Lake processors, 50 percent faster SSDs, and the same keyboard that shipped in the MacBook Pros previous year. It features an Intel Kaby Lake processor, dubbed the Core i7, running at 3.5 gigahertz with turbo boost up to 4.0 GHz.

The 21.5-inch iMac will start at $1099 and the 4K 21.5-inch model at $1299.

"The 12" MacBook - the one with a single USB Type-C port - has received minor price cuts as well and is now priced at Rs. 1,09,900 for the 256GB SSD variant (Rs. 1,12,900 earlier) and Rs. 1,34,900 for the 512GB SSD model (Rs. 1,39,900 earlier).

Why Is Yum! Brands (YUM) Up 7% Since the Last Earnings Report?
Lodestar Inv Counsel Ltd Liability Company Il holds 0.04% of its portfolio in Yum! Brands by 24.2% in the first quarter. The firm now has a $65.00 target price on the restaurant operator's stock, up from their prior target price of $57.00.

The iMac Pro will be the world's fastest Mac (and the most powerful). All 27-inch models along with some of the higher-end 21.5 inch iMacs will get a Fusion Drive.

Likewise, Apple has updated its MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops with Kaby Lake processors for faster processing and extended battery life. "Today iMac gets a huge graphics performance increase, faster CPU performance, Thunderbolt 3 and a brighter Retina display with support for 1 billion colours". The iMac Pro features 18-core Xeon processors and up to 22 Teraflops of graphics computation.

Apple fans interested in purchasing an iMac Pro will be presented with three separate models, each with differing computing specifications. It will have the same design as the current 27-inch model but with a new space grey finish.

Gunmen Attack Iran Parliament and Mausoleum, Killing At Least One: State Media
In a message released by the Kremlin after Wednesday's attacks, Putin said Russian Federation "resolutely condemns" the violence. Witnesses said the attackers were shooting from the fourth floor of the parliament building down at people in the streets below.

The iMac Pro has more or less the same look and feel as the 27-inch, 5K iMac we first saw in 2015 (though now it's more like the $5K iMac, am I right?).

With an incredibly thin new design, the best Mac display ever, all-new speakers, and the revolutionary Touch Bar for instant access to the tools you want when you want them, the new MacBook Pro marks a milestone in the evolution of the notebook. I/O options include four Thunderbolt ports, which means you could power two external 5K displays and two RAID storage arrays at the same time, assuming you need that much storage and screen real estate.

While the iPhone was largely absent from the announcements at WWDC, Apple did give a sneak peek into the future of the device with the unveiling of a new version of iOS, which also powers its iPads.
