The last configuration of iMac Pro is starting to ship to consumers worldwide, with readers informing AppleInsider that they have custody of the machine now.
AppleInsider was tipped on Monday morning, and has confirmed with its sources not authorized to speak on behalf of the company that "early orders" of the 14-core iMac Pro have shipped to not just U.S. based customers, but to international ones as well.
Apple's iMac Pro is loaded with "server grade" components. It has a base configuration with an eight-core processor running at 3.2 gigahertz, 32 gigabytes of ECC DDR4 2666 RAM, a Vega 56 GPU with 8GB of VRAM, and 1 terabyte of flash storage. Configurations shipping in 2017 included the 8- and 10-core models, up to 4TB of storage on either configuration, either the Vega 56 with 8GB of RAM or the Vega 64 GPU with 16GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of RAM, with the 14- and 18-core models now shipping as well.
Connectivity is provided by a SD card slot with UHS-II support, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, a 10-Gigabit Ethernet port, three USB 3.0 type A ports, and a headphone jack.
The display is 5K, with Apple's Wide Color display that spans the DCI-P3 gamut. Resolution is 5120 by 2880 with 500 nits of brightness.
A 14-core iMac Pro model starts at around $6600, and escalates rapidly, depending on configuration. A maxed-out 18-core iMac Pro costs $13,199.
The unit ships in Space Gray, with matching Lightning cable to charge the included Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, and Magic Mouse 2. A Space Gray Magic Trackpad 2 is available for sale in conjunction with the unit.
Standard configurations can be picked up for full retail cost at Apple Stores now, with an online order for a 14-core model arriving between Feb. 19 and Mar. 5, according to Apple.
