Apple announces all-new iMacs, MacBook updates”

Apple has just announced their new all-in-one desktop, the iMac Pro, and boy does it have some hefty specs.

It will ship with an 8-core Xeon processor, a 10-core processor or an 18GB processor, the company announced at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference. Other features include a 27-inch 5K display, four Thunderbolt 3 ports and 10GB Ethernet.

Updates to the 12-inch MacBook and flagship 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros also included Intel's Kaby Lake processors to make the laptops more efficient, and could result in improved battery life.

Lewis Hamilton feels Ferrari wanted Sebastian Vettel to win Monaco Grand Prix
I was devastated yesterday but to come away with some points is better than nothing. "I like to think those points will be valuable at the end of the season".

Apple also promised performance of up to 22 teraflops. Featuring a new, next-generation compute core and up to 16GB of on-package high-bandwidth memory (HBM2), iMac Pro with the Vega GPU delivers up to an awesome 11 Teraflops of single-precision compute power for real-time 3D rendering and immersive, high frame rate VR. It has the same 27-inch 5K display. Apple called it "the most powerful Mac" it's ever made, a dig at the now dated cylindrical Mac Pro.

The monitors themselves are getting a big boost, with a 500 nit upgrade in brightness, making them 43 percent brighter than its predecessors and more than a billion colors. All of the new models are available now. Steam VR for Mac is available now in beta form.

Graphics are a focus for the new machines: The 21.5-inch takes on an Intel Iris Plus 640, and the 21.5-inch Retina 4K will move to a Radeon Pro 555 and 560, up to three times faster than the last generation with 4 GB of VRAM.

Jack Nicklaus: Tiger Woods "needs our help"
Woods' wife has told police that she used a golf club to smash the back windows of the Cadillac Escalade to help her husband out. Woods was arrested and charged with DUI, but released on his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m., according to booking records .

High Sierra will run on exactly the same hardware as Sierra, so no Macs are getting cut from support this year.

The 21.5-inch iMac will start at $1099 and the 4K 21.5-inch model at $1299. Without Touch Bars across both of Apple's most popular Mac products, we find it unlikely that major software developers like Adobe will add further support for the Touch Bar to their apps beyond their current lukewarm efforts.

All iMac and MacBook Pro updates are shipping starting today.
