iMac Pro. Turns out it's not a trap. It's pretty damn good.

Intro Track: More Better by Alltta
Apple has opted to go for lower fan noise at the cost of CPU throttling - While I understand that is an acceptable thing for the average Mac user, it unfortunately means that many IT Pros is making a pass on this.
Now I would never buy an iMac Pro, as I don't need these specs. However, I feel it is missing something, and that is being an ultrawide monitor with smaller bezels. Now at 5k that is currently impossible, but still. The monitor dimension including the bezels have been the same since 2009 (roughly, not counting a couple of mm here and there). Now I'm not a 'smalle = better' advocate, but going ultrawide would simply give the system more room. And well, it's 2018.
Some weird fruit computer screen thing that costs 13 000$?? What happen to normal conputers around 400$? Nice way to waste your money.. with that you can buy a nice car and still have 11 000$ for mods.
MKBHD must be a millionaire to afford all of that tech!
Also i heard phones etc. will give you cancer!!??🤔🤔
MKB- you'll add to your credibility significantly if you don't completely ignore PC workstations. I love Mac OS too - I get it, I own a MBP - but you can't have a discussion of editing workstations without comparing to PC. I suggest checking out an outfit like Puget Systems - they've built two machines for me over the years and they take the hassle out of the custom building crap.
Crushes a custom pc? You can literally buy all of those exact parts (as many people already have) and build the “same computer” with different operating systems... not to mention a single 1080 or ti outperforms the Vega 64. Or you could sli Titan XP’s with a threadripper and absolutely wreck the Mac pro
Do not buy any 1st Gen Apple Product. Let the sheeple buy it and report the problem to Apple and give it some time for apple's engineer team deal with issues and fix it I.e iPhone 6 - Bends easily | 2016 MacBook Pro - Keyboard Spacebar and other keys are easily broken off | 2009 -2011 iMac GPU issue | G4 Cube - Heating Issue | iPhone x - does not play well in cold weather | Mac Pro Trashcan - abandoned form factor |etc... Every time Anyone makes new product Car, Phone, or Computer, The Assembly line has to be built for that product. Even if the product is designed perfectly, There can be a problem in the assembly line ( Macbook pro-AR coating peeling off, bad batteries ) and sometimes it's just bad design ( 2011-2013 iMac GPU problem ) I would wait if you have your heart set on the mac pro. iMac historically had the heating issue with GPU start creating artifacts. and recalls. Since Apple MCM GPU uses special firmware, it was impossible to fix. The new iMac pro has beefier cooling system vs regular iMac, but is the cooling system enough to handle Xeon and fixed VERA GPU that is installed vertically? I won't bet my 10,000 on it.
iPhone 6 was Apple's first big phone. when iPhone 6s came out they changed Aluminum 6000 to7000. I fix laptops and cell phones as the side job while I go to colleges. most iPhone is not bent, but if it is slightly bent, it's 6.
iMac GPU - Nvidia and AMD chipset ran very hot back in the day. When Nvidia and AMD release GPU, they also release Reference design. It's a guide telling manufacturers to cool the GPU in certain ways so it does not overheat. Because of Apple has the cutting-edge design, and often constrained by space, the GPU and CPU in older iMac were cooled by one fan which was control by Mac OS. It's Apple-designed board and thermal control. the fault lies with Apple. On top of that MCM style, GPU was never sold to the public. you can't find replacement GPU.
"Intel and Apple engineers know more about how to cool the products they design and build than some random off the internet." Off the internet?? most GPU manufacturers like EVGA, MSI, ASUS use Nvidia and Amd's ref design and often go overboard with extra cooling fans, thermal pads on memory and heatsink. Not only that the GPU is mounted horizontally. iMac Pro's soldered in GPU, and uses their own design. I seen the inside of new iMac pro and I'm glad they spend a lot of space on Cooling fan but if you compare to any box looking PC cooling... it has less airflow | heat sink | Fans (by a lot ) . Will they able to pull it off? I hope so. GPU and CPU are getting more energy efficient and perhaps there will not be a recall.
"Apple engineers know more about how to cool the products " Just search Macbook thermal Throttling. lolz, Even my 2015 MBPr had some issue so I opened it up and reapply thermal paste. The pursuit of thinness has trade-off and the price you pay is performance and cooling. only people who should buy this expensive imac are video editing pros. nothing is more taxing than heavy computation they use to render and etc. the heat generated need to be moved out or there will be 1. thermal throttling or 2. hardware problem.
All I'm saying is this. Just wait a year. see how things pan out. Do you like 6? wait and get 6s. Do you like Macbook air? ( the first one was overpriced) wait couple generations. Do like like this shiny new iMac Pro? wait a year. If there is no problem with this one you might get it cheaper. if there is a problem, you can by the improved version.
The iPhone 6 is no more bendy than any other flagship phone around at the time. In fact it's more durable than most of the competition of the time. I had one from day one, it's still being used by my mother who handles her tech far less gently than I do and it's still perfectly fine. NO bending. The people who bent it sat on the fucking thing with it in their back pockets.
The iMac GPU issue is an Nvidia fail by the way. Pretty much everything using those chips had problems with them. The same chips were used in their laptops too and they also had problems.
Oh and call me silly, but I think Intel and Apple engineers know more about how to cool the products they design and build than some random off the internet. If Intel are happy for their chips to run so hot, then they're probably right. Modern chips can run hotter for longer than older chips can and still be fine.
be interesting to see if they do actually make a new apple tower one day
or if this iMac Pro gets enough fans ... maybe that is it
or another sealed unit (like a mini with iMacPro spec) for the people who want to use their own monitors
You may cover more areas of usage of workstation while reviewing same. Video editing is not the only reason why some people / organisations buy it.
You may cover industrial uses also since its review video about the machine. Some of the area I could see are Software building(compiling, build ...), simulation running for solving engineering problem like ANSIS, MATLAB, Saber etc.
hhhhhh. I'have a desk PC that even d'ont know the name of it . it's i5 CPU / 4GB RAM / 256GB SSD / and some grafix card / windows 8. hhhhhh this imac is the powerfull machine hhh for war .
good videos mark . hhhhhhh
I hope it's not $10,000 (Oh fuck it is I watched the video, it is over even) all of the shitty Macs are 1000s of dollars. Macs suck. Just use Windows unless you want to waste your money on a decent computer when you could get a decent car for the price of two of these. If you are going to use this to do simulations as the website says just make your own PC. I don't know about particle simulations, but I think with the right programs all you need is horsepower. You can get a lot more horsepower if you spend that same amount of money on a regular PC.
I was gonna say, at least it looks good in the space grey D: When i studied video editing we exclusively used Apple and Final Cut so i get that its great hardware/software. But damn that price tag. Ever since i bought my last Macbook Pro in 2012 (i still use it for my band on stage btw) Apple kinda fell out of grace with me. My next live performance laptop/19" computer will probably be a PC. When i think of what you can buy for the money i kinda cringe at the idea of a 13k Imac. Even though i agree its the best looking Apple product in years...
