Do you know how hard it is to have this thing sitting on my desk for a week and not show it? 🤓

Would this be enough for my 720p video edits or should I go for something faster?

Like this one, but I want to see if they will use i9 in the next update.
Charles Alden (11 days ago)
The iMac Pro is an absolute waste of money. The Intel Xeon W chips are nothing but i9 chips with a Xeon sticker thrown on top. Sure, they support ECC memory but there is nothing your average iMac Pro user would need to ever use it. As in, leaving your iMac Pro on for days on end rendering complex models, in which the Vega 64 do to it's low memory size wouldn't even support, just isn't something they would do. If they did, well, it would be a stupid move as they'll eventually ruin their hardware as the iMac Pro simply wasn't built for such things. The best thing you can do now, is to just buy an i9 18 core system, add in 64GB of RAM, a real workstation class GPU like a AMD WX 7100/9100, fantastic cards for OSX and Final Cut Pro, than using the up to 3 to 4 grand you saved by doing this, buy another PC/laptop for gaming. The worst bang for your money though is the entry level iMac Pro. You actually get much faster performance by using a 8700K over clocked to 5GHz, like 25 percent faster, especially in Final Cut as it's not really a multi CPU optimized program, over 6 cores. Not just that but you can built a Hackintosh based on the 8700K or Ryzen 1800X with 64GB RAM, Radeon Pro, Frontier, WX 7100 2x 1TB Samsung SSD's, water-cooling, with a 14bit Pro 32" Monitor, for a grand less. I know because I'm using one right now, based on a NZXT case, ASRock, mini-ITX Mobo, i9 18 Core, Radeon Pro Duo with a new WX9100 on the way, 1TB 960, 6TB SATA. Though this system costs a lot more, it was still a lot less than the iMac Pro 10 core and wipes the floor with it, even the 18 core iMac Pro. The Radeon Pro DUO by the way is still a really good card for a Mac, especially at only $700. I have the 32GB version. Which is a hundred more. Really, in Final Cut its actually faster than the Vega when editing 6K or 8K video do to the more RAM. I'm also currently building another one with a Ryzen 7 1800X and a AMD WX7100, 32GB RAM for my friend, so far it annihilates the 8 core iMac Pro in almost every benchmark, except Final Cut as it uses Intel on!y tech for extra performance , though he uses Adobe Premiere so it doesn't matter and for that it is faster. Price, $2800.

I feel like 128 gigs of RAM is really unnecessary. Yes, fcpx and photoshop and after effects do take up some RAM, but I don’t think it’ll use up 128 gigs. 32 gigs is already used by very few people, 64 gigs is absurd, and 128 gigs is just plain unnecessary.

My only question is: how does  Bootcamp run with Autodesk software ?
Himanshu Swt (1 month ago)
I seriously dont get it. Why do game developers or more software developers dont release their games and softwares for mac os??? I mean these imacs are beasts. Even the base model will be able to handle all the games out right now without any lag if the game developers develop their games for macs. I mean do Apple not give permission to any game developers to release their games for mac os. I mean seriously, apple could sell millions more pieces of imacs n macbooks if games n more softwares are released for macs

I appreciate that apple actually spends time make pro software like final cut and logic while Microsoft is making bloatware like paint 3D and whatever new gimicky video editor they made.

Hello Marques. I have been watching many videos about the new imac pro. Lots of render times compared with other systems. Looks promising, BUT I am wondering if any of the test were done using EXTERNAL RAIDs, such as the Pegasus on your desk. It is true that the internal SSD of the imac pro is fast, but 4K and 8K files tend to need significantly more space than even the 4TB SSD. On top of that, who really wants to use there operating system Drive as a scratch disc? If you have any information on the performance of this computer using real world situations and external RAID systems, I would highly appreciate that. I have switched to a Z840 with dual Xeon 12 Core, 128G RAM and Quadro P5000. I have installed internal SSD RAID for scratch, which gives me 2800 MB/s write and 2900 MB/s read on BM Disk Speed Check. Do you think I would benefit by switching back to mac with imac pro?

If we want 2 TB SSD instead of 1 TB SSD for iMac Pro 5K, Apple charges us *$800 more for 1 more TB SSD.*

leokimvideo (2 months ago)
I'm fearful being black it's going to be a nightmare to keep clean. My silver one really doesn't show the dust that sucked to it because of it's thermal undercurrents. I don't like the weird box thats stuck under the screen. Yes Premiere is a nightmare with RAM, but the cost of Apple's RAM is crazy. Dare say there is no law against making a profit.

SWATversion3 (2 months ago)
The problem with you Youtubers when you review, is that you think that Final Cut Pro or Adobe premiere are some of the most demanding and hardware challenging softwares ever existed. It's funny, because that is all you know about.

Inwe David (2 months ago)
Just a remarq for the equivalent PC price, I am a Un switcher who get back to PC and I got a xeon 6 core with DDR4 capable of 128gb of RAM (I don't have money to buy it), a 1080 equivalent to the vega 56 in performance and price, 2 older quatro 4000 card in it for more calculation power, a NVME SSD as fast as the latest Apple SSD (3.2gb/d) and this for around 1500€ I also have inside 3x 4To HDD for storage, a hotplug drive bay to have HDD used as floppy disk (30€). I use the classic 27" 144 point screen , a 5k screen cost 1000€ and is fully usable in 5K mode by windows (not a 4 to 1 extrapolation) My CPU and RAM and all is upgradable for a very low price, I can add up to 3 graphic card into and the calculation I do on the GPU are deeply faster than the CPU. My machine is now one year old. I do not say it is a bad machine at all but question of price it is at least the double of the price of an equivalent PC without its flexibility.

wast of money, apple taking everyone money and keep been more money hunger... apple has alot of money, they should every 7 years... make one year 15% price less to keep the money in our pocket so we can continue purchasing apple products!! if you agree with my opinion... step on like thumb

what is a box under imac?
Mike P (2 months ago)
I really like the outside design. But airflow management with these has to be awful compared to a custom desktop PC case. I am also curious how big of a fan the CPU has on it. I thought these had like an 18-core Xeon in them or something. That's got to generate tons of heat. Again, custom PC case with more space will allow larger fan or liquid cooling set up. The $5000 price tag also pushes me away from it.
Buyun Zhao (2 months ago)
casual all black Hasselblad
Js Walks (2 months ago)
IMO, I’d wait for a more modular design as this is what pro users often expect because of their diversity of work (outboard equipment required etc.). I’m sure this iMac is a ‘capable’ machine but it’s very design could make it a somewhat high risk investment for a working editor/creator. I’d say the iMac Pro could be useful for some pros’s just not all.

what on earth do u need 128 gigs of ram for?

Nobody buying that for 10000 only apple ass licks with too much money
Kommo- O (2 months ago)
You could pretty much stop after the price tag. Apple has reached ludicrous speed - passing plaid at the speed of light. 5000. It’s lame. What it really says - I am a flag for idiots. That’s so much more expensive than the best pc you could build.
Juan Echevarria (3 months ago)
it's ridiculous that the best one costs $13k. 128gb is insane though. I'm happy with 16gb lol.
