iMac Pro now available for purchase

The hotly anticipated iMac Pro is finally available to purchase. Those willing to drop 5 grand USD can get their hands on one of these monster rigs. The default configuration is as follows: 

  • 3.2GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W processor
  • Turbo Boost up to 4.2GHz
  • 32GB 2666MHz ECC memory, configurable up to 128GB
  • 1TB SSD storage
  • Radeon Pro Vega 56 with 8GB HBM2 memory
  • 10Gb Ethernet
  • Four Thunderbolt 3 ports
  • 27-inch Retina 5K 5120-by-2880 P3 display

Of course you can customize the machine, all the way up to around $14,000. The specs get insane at this point and obviously are way overkill for gaming. There's also the question as to whether the workstation-focused GPU would boost game performance or not. The Pro is obviously aimed at professional in the field of design, film, photography etc, but will you be getting one?
