      Its pretty big for 4k. Also depending on how you export it. 2GBs to 22GBs is not a surprise.

  • HablemosdeMTG
    HablemosdeMTG 20 days ago

    Honestly....$13000. That's more than my anual wage (argentina). On the other side, that iMac can be an awesome product but for a few. Is like buying a rolex watch. I bet that you can go away with a PC for half of the price for the same horsepower. Either way....i'm currently with a 2500k @4.3ghz, a GTX 970 and 12gb of ram. In after effects I may need more computing power to be satisfied....but my PC never bottlenecked my work, at least doing 1080p. What bottlenecks my work is TIME (but not for render, I can render all night long while i'm sleeping if needed and do the previews in 1/4th of the resolution), time to think about my videos and writing scripts. This iMAC PRO is a product for Millonaries.

    Most people can't afford it. Can buy a decent second hand car, pay you rent and food for a year and still have change to buy an i7 Windows 10 pc and samung S9. Don't think i'll be buying one, couldn't afford one.
    Enjoy your reviews by the way 😀

    Don't like the space grey, don't like the built in speakers, like the ports, like the silent fan, performance is ok, but rendering is still not real time...

    It is hilarious to read the comments of people here who claim to be able to build a PC gaming machine for much less. Those of us who do buy a MAC, pro or not, don't buy them to play games. We buy them because they they work consistently, and flawlessly when we need them too. Our professional lives depend on that consistency.

      +Pavel Urusov Value is about dividing performance by price. An iMac Pro costs $5000, but just by switching out the server CPU for a superseding AMD TR, and by adding an additional GPU for $700, you are basically doubling the performance for an increase in price of 14%.

    • Pavel Urusov
      Pavel Urusov 8 days ago

      EggyRepublic Will you be able to build a PC with an 18-core Xeon, 128GB of ECC RAM and 4TB of extremely fast PCIe storage for less? Maybe. But if you consider the whole package, iMac Pro would still be a better value (unlike Apple's current laptop lineup which is kind of screwed up).

    • EggyRepublic
      EggyRepublic 9 days ago

      "Gaming" doesn't always necessarily mean actually for gaming, it has became a generic term for "high performance".

      Just replace it with 'workstation" if it helps. Both workstation and gaming use GPU very heavily and the CPU fairly heavily.

    I don't get how port placement is a legitimate complaint. Where does everyone think theyre going to stick ports on a thin all in one desktop? Just use a USB hub. It would look nicer anyhow without cables hanging down. And it's not like that would be unaffordable for someone buying this computer.

    13,000 is an absurd amount of money to pay for a computer. And this isn't subjective. You are objectively dumb if you pay that much for a desktop computer even at the highest spec offered. LOL

    & Video Editing
    to know if there are any hot spots on the case that could be externally cooled?
    to help keep chip temps from exceeding 89°c?
    to help the system perform better & last longer?

    Big fan of MKBHD, but I feel like these videos should be on medium-highly priced products, not completely insane products that 99.99% of users will not or cannot afford. it's maybe a conflict on the channel that between the red camera, fancy cinematography etc that it's actually starting to conflict with why we've flocked to him for advice in the first place.

    Man, Marques! It still boggles my mind on WHY you are still rendering 8k projects and filming in 4k for these videos. You are truly living in the future where barely nobody watches video in 4k or 8k yet. LOL. It's almost like you have been waiting at the finish line for the past couple of years now; taping your foot and looking at your phone for the time. Waiting patiently for everyone to show up with you. We are getting there!! People that devour High Res Content on Low Res Tech. Keep on rocking these videos, man!!!
