AMD releases 'Radeon Pro 500' Series graphics for iMac

That's the same price the new 13-inch MacBook Pro will be starting at, too. The 21.5-inch model now can be configured up to 32GB of RAM, while the 27-inch goes up to 64GB, twice what had previously been offered. The updated iMacs will be available later today. The iMac Pro can also be maxed out with 128GB of ECC memory and a 4TB SSD drive, all cooled by a new dual centrifugal fan system that hopefully won't require you to wear headphones all day long while you work.

Described by Apple as "the most powerful Mac ever made", the new iMac Pro features up to 18-core Xeon processors and up to 16GB of on-package high-bandwidth memory with a Radeon Pro Vega GPU. The 15-inch MacBook Pro now comes standard with more powerful discrete graphics and more video memory, and the 13-inch MacBook Pro adds a new configuration.

Perhaps unexpectedly, the next most exciting unit on display was the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, running iOS 11.

The updates are definitely welcome, especially on the MacBook Pro front, so if you've been waiting to snag a new Mac for months, now might be the time. There were also additional Thunderbolt 3 ports and a processor improvement: The newest iMacs will run Kaby Lake.

Now, Apple thinks consumers who'll purchase the said desktop all-in-one computer will require huge power.

Another thing that's stayed the same is price: The MacBook will still start at $1,299 - which will get you a model with a entry-level Core m3 chip and 256 GB of storage - and reach up to $1,949 as you go up the specs ladder.

Apple says will help ARKit become the largest augmented reality platform in the world, practically "overnight".

iMacs are getting an internal upgrade boosting processing power and display quality. "With all these high performance technologies, this iMac Pro is going to be an awesome workstation".

After unveiling the refreshed iMac desktops and MacBook Pro, AMD's Senior Vice President and Chief Architect disclosed the benchmark to the public.

"Radeon Pro 500" series graphics harnesses up to 5.5 TFLOPS (a unit) of performance, making use of the "Polaris" GPU architecture.
