Radeon Pro 500 Series for iMac: Powerful Performance for Breathtaking 5K Computing

After giving Amazon a several year head start and rivals like Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) time to get in the game, Apple unveiled its Amazon Echo competitor. That being said, the "magic" premium has never been more apparent than it is here.

The new software also contains a "Do Not Disturb While Driving" mode, which Apple says will help prevent iPhones distracting those behind the wheel, and a new "Files" app that resembles a traditional computer file system for viewing and organising documents.

AMD has a new client and probably the biggest client till now.

The iMacs above will no doubt be really quick and perfectly usable computers, but Apple teased the new Pro version which makes them seem a bit meh, really. The iMac Pro comes later this year starting at $4,999. It also is available in a attractive new space gray color. But in an unexpected turn of events, the Cupertino company also announced a much more powerful iMac Pro for power users. Nevertheless, the French Apple news site Consomac, uncovered regulatory filings for several Mac devices in Russian Federation, which suggest that Apple's new MacBook Pro 2017 could be rolling out soon, QZ reported. Apple previously restricted most of its iMacs to integrated graphics.

The updated 13-inch MacBook Pro features Kaby Lake processors up to 3.5 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.0 GHz, and the 15-inch MacBook Pro goes up to 3.1 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.1 GHz.

Apple's new iMac Pro rocks 18-core CPU, Radeon Vega GPU
Meanwhile, the 27-inch 5K model will have a choice of Radeon Pro 570, 575, and 580 graphics cards, topping out at 8GB of VRAM. The truly insatiable will be able to add 128GB of ECC RAM and 4TB of PCIe SSD storage to their iMac Pros , as well.

Top officials of the two countries still met in the following months; but could not cap the downward spiral in relations. The minister said there was no flip-flop on part of the government in handling Pakistan. "We have proven it", she added.

Oil stems sharp declines as Opec decision disappoints market
United States crude prices were flat at $48.88 on Friday, after losing 4.8% overnight, set to end the week 2.8% lower . Traders yesterday were disappointed that an OPEC-led decision to extend current production curbs did not go deeper.

The 21.5-inch iMac is getting faster Iris Plus 640 integrated graphics via the Kaby Lake upgrade, with a new option for discrete Radeon Pro 500 series graphics. Apple said it had to rethink the thermal architecture in order to get the more powerful processors into the current body. The new 10.5-inch model offers room for a full-size keyboard, something the 9.7 inch model couldn't.

The new graphics enables extraordinary computing experiences, gaming and immersive virtual reality (VR) on select models.

The new iMac Pro starts at $5,000 and will ship in December.

It's quite the ketchup bottle effect: with nothing arriving for a long while, the amount of new hardware suddenly released in front of 5300 conference goers at Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference in San Jose was a surprise.

In short, the machines you can now buy from Apple are faster and more capable than the ones you could buy yesterday, with improvements in display technology, graphics power, and processing speed. If you're willing to pay that, and the price of an iPad Pro to begin, $29 probably isn't a huge stretch, especially if you're an accessory impulse buyer.
