Apple discontinues the iMac Pro

Prasad, 06 March 2021

Apple is discontinuing the iMac Pro desktop computer. The company is currently selling the base configuration on its website with a sign that says "While supplies last." You can no longer configure the computer and the default configuration is the only option available.

This change was first noticed by 9to5Mac. Apple then confirmed that it will be discontinuing the product after supplies run out to The Verge.

The iMac Pro was a more powerful version of the standard iMac. It featured the workstation-grade Intel Xeon processors with ECC memory and AMD Radeon Pro graphics. The iMac Pro also featured improved cooling performance over the standard iMac and came in an exclusive Space Gray color with matching accessories.

Apple is expected to revamp the standard iMac with a brand new design and a switch to the ARM-based Apple Silicon some time this year. This new machine will likely handily outstrip every currently available iMac configuration.

Launched in 2017, the iMac Pro was always a bit of a stop-gap solution before the company started work on the Mac Pro. Now with both the iMac and Mac Pro expected to switch to Apple Silicon, there isn't much need for a separate iMac Pro in the lineup.

Seriously then, do you expect a Xeon chip in a Macbook then? And besides it’s already clear that the M1 is like a mobile processor. The Xeon’s TDP is also a lot higher than the M1.

That doesn’t even look like a gaming rig, but the GPU should be capable of playing modern games at high settings probably at 1080p. Windows still has a wider library of games.
