Apple’s iMac Pro now available with 256GB RAM option

“Apple has quietly updated the iMac Pro build-to-order options to include new Radeon Pro Vega 64X graphics and a 256 GB RAM option,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac.

“These upgrades don’t come cheap,” Mayo reports. “The 256 GB RAM memory option will set you back a cool $5200, on top of the cost of the $5000 iMac Pro base model.”

“The new high-end Radeon Pro Vega 64X graphics card for the iMac Pro is slightly more palatable,” Mayo reports. “It is only a $700 upgrade, and comes with 16 GB dedicated video memory.”

MacDailyNews Take: If you think that’s expensive, what’ll the new Mac Pro finally arrives.

  1. “If you think that’s expensive, what’ll the new Mac Pro finally arrives.”

    I think you mean “If you think that’s expensive, wait’ll the unnecessarily and nobody-asked-for modular much more expensive non-Cheese Grater new Mac Pro finally arrives.”

    I think with “innovation” for Apple that means a way to design-jigger built-in higher costs that aren’t necessary. Sigh

    1. Yes, the maxed out iMac Pro is now almost $16,000.00 (more if you add in local sales taxes). And, that’s for a machine this is very difficult to upgrade after the fact. Effectively it is what it is. Effectively a closed system that you will turn into a high end monitor in 3 – 5 years.

  2. Yes. “New” machines (really just updated in minimal ways) with mostly 18+ month old technologies. The Intel CPUs were shipping in quantity approximately 16 – 20 months ago. The only new-ish thing today is the Vega 64x chip. Not really much of an update for a 15 month old machine.
