2017 iMac Update Aims for the Pro Users Ahead of New Mac Pro

New iMac tipped for up to 64GB of RAM

Apple made it clear a few days back that it would be updating the Mac Pro desktop computer and bringing out a new display to go with that updated machine. Apple plans a modular Mac Pro that will appeal to pro users on its performance merits rather than design gimmicks. The catch is that Mac Pro won't launch this year.

That means until that launch happens if Pro users wasn't something other than the disappointing and expensive current Mac Pro, they have the iMac to look at. Rumors suggest that in late October a new iMac will launch and that this iMac is what Apple hopes will hold over the pro users until the new Mac Pro launches.

Rumors suggest that the new iMac might get the Touch Bar that Apple introduced first on the MacBook Pro. Some rumored specs for the iMac upgrade include up to Intel E3-1285 v6 processors and 16GB of ECC memory. That RAM can be upgraded to 32GB or 64GB. Apple is also tipped to be using faster NVMe SSDs with possibly up to 2TB and AMD graphics to support VR Pro apps according to an rumor we reported earlier about.

The iMac is also tipped to get a Thunderbolt 3 port along with a USB-C port. A new keyboard rounds out the rumors. That certainly sounds like a machine that will hold pros over. The iMac was previously rumored to be getting an 8K resolution screen. I don't even want to know how much a fully optioned 8K iMac might cost.
