Apple has given us 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) in the new iMac Pro!
The new iMac Pro is a beautifully designed workstation that packs some serious power. It handles monstrous codecs like 8K ProRes 4444 and 5K RED RAW as if they are mere proxies. And, if you’re willing to shell out the cash for the fully loaded version (which will set you back about $13,000) it can handle just about anything you want to throw at it.
But overall, our favorite thing about the new iMac Pro is the fact that you can connect to shared storage over 10Gb Ethernet with much less hassle. You won’t have to shop for another adapter, and that means one less Thunderbolt chassis on your desk, and one less wire hanging out of a Thunderbolt port.
