Last week, Apple announced its new iMac Pro, where the company unveiled only the most basic model with a price tag of $ 4,999 and in this price you will get access to a computer built around a 27-inch panel with P3 color gamut and a 5120 x 2880 pixel resolution screen powered by an Intel Xeon 8-core coupled with an unknown Radeon Pro Vega with 3584 Stream Processors along with 8 GB of HBM2 memory, 32 GB of ECC DDR4 @ 2666 MHz RAM and a 1 TB of SSD as storage.

Expect at least 64 GB of DDR4 RAM, and more physical storage.
