The new iMac Pro will also do all of its new graphic intensive processes thanks to AMD's new Radeon Pro Vega GPU, which is the most advanced form of graphics to ever feature on an iMac. One of the new devices that Apple unveiled was the iMac Pro, which the company describes as "the most powerful Mac ever". The iMac Pro is one of the biggest announcements made so far, and it is now the most powerful iMac ever according to the specs alone.

The company is also teasing an iMac Pro.

The iMac Pro won't be the only Apple device getting discrete graphics. The new all-in-one computers are coming with two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports.

The starting price for the new iMacs ranges from $1,099 to $1,799 and they're available for order today at Apple's website. The brand has also introduced a new 13-inch MacBook Pro and has upgraded the entire MacBook lineup with the latest specifications. So powerful, in fact, that Apple is calling it "the most powerful Mac ever".

The Mac upgrades are Apple's first to the MacBook Pro since the computer was revamped last fall with a slimmer design and the Touch Bar touchscreen strip on the keyboard.

One of the highlights of the company's reasonably jam-packed WWDC presentations, the iMac Pro is created to replace the company's cylindrical Mac Pro as the go-to workstation-class machine for those within the Apple ecosystem.

On the MacBook front, the ultra portable 12-inch MacBook is upgraded to Kaby Lake processors up to 1.3GHZ Core i7 (Turbo Boost 3.6 GHz), 50% faster SSD and support for twice the memory. Featuring a new, next-generation compute core and up to 16GB of on-package high-bandwidth memory (HBM2), iMac Pro with the Vega GPU delivers up to an wonderful 11 Teraflops of single-precision compute power for real-time 3D rendering and immersive, high frame rate VR. There is a drop for the 21.5-inch 4K iMac though, which is going down to $1,499 for the cheapest configuration. The 21.5 inch iMac, 21.5 inches iMac Retina 4k at $1,099 While, iMac Retina 5k 27-inch begins at $1,799. It will have SSDs with storage of 1TB to 4TB, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, and built-in 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

The new MacBook Pro models will come equipped with faster chips and faster graphics. Pricing on the MacBook Pro will start at $1,299.

The iMac Pro is set to ship in December STARTING at a wallet-busting $5,000.
