I’ll be testing the iMac Pro in detail with a variety of applications starting Jan 3 at the OWC facility in Woodstock, IL. Anyone considering the iMac Pro vs 2017 iMac 5K might want to hold off just a bit—it’s not clear that the iMac Pro is better for real world tasks, and if it is better, whether it is incremental or substantial (I expect incremental).
I explain the limitations of high-core-count CPUs in Why More CPU Cores Often Run no Faster, and Sometimes Slower than Fewer CPU Cores .
At present, my full time machine has become the 2017 iMac 5K. See Switched to 2017 iMac 5K as Primary Machine: Details on Gear I’m Using.
Unboxing and teardown of iMac Pro
I have a keen interest in the teardown of the iMac Pro, since it will show what can be upgraded or not (I’ve already seen what’s there video to come.
I’m posting OWC iMac Pro videos at MacPerformanceGuide.com with commentary. For starters, the initial unboxing video is now available for viewing.
