Pro-level iMac computers Tipped for End of 2017 Launch

Hardware rumored to include Intel Xeon processor

Professional users who don't like the current Mac Pro computers might have been pumped to hear that Apple would be producing an iMac AIO computer that would cater to the needs of the professionals out there ahead of the new Mac Pro launch. I think that a lot of us expected that new pro iMac to land this summer, but a new rumor making the rounds suggests otherwise.

MacRumors reports that the new mainstream consumer iMac computers will enter into production next month and will launch between August and October. The pro-grade iMac version won't launch until the end of 2017 according to the rumor. The consumer versions will land in time for the holiday shopping season.

Some specs have been previously leaked for the new iMac machines suggesting that the pro version of the iMac tipped for late 2017 will feature an Intel Xeon 3-1265 v6 processor and options for 16GB to 64GB of ECC RAM. Storage in the pro version is expected to be up to 2TB of NVM Express PCI-e SSD. Rumors also tip a discrete graphics card of unknown type.

That discrete graphics card is very nice for pro-users, the iMac AIOs normally get underpowered laptop grade GPUs. Other rumors have pointed to Apple working on a new iMac keyboard that could have the Touch Bar and Touch ID tech from the latest MacBook Pro. However, that keyboard feature for the iMac as said to depend on how well consumers liked the features on the MacBook. New iMac machines could have an 8k display and both USB-C ports and Thunderbolt 3 are expected.
