Apple announces its 'most powerful' Mac yet: the iMac Pro

At its WWDC Developer conference this year, Apple announced a refresh of its AIO iMac series and MacBook line of notebooks to go with the newly announced High Sierra version of macOS. So far there is no word on worldwide pricing, and no indication of what the most powerful iteration of the device - with 18-core Xeon processors, a Radeon Pro Vega GPU with 16GB of VRAM and a 4TB SSD hard drive - will cost.

In essence, the iMac Pro is meant to replace the dustbin-shaped Mac Pro that Apple launched in 2013 and quickly forgot about afterwards.

We have been waiting for a Mac Pro refresh for ages now and it seems that Apple has finally realized that it needs to introduce one, even though it is pretty late and the Microsoft Surface Studio has been out for some time now. Be sure to follow along with TMO's coverage from the event.
