As of tonight, the new iMacs are finally officially available for ordering from the Apple store. The maximum configuration looks something like this: [list] [*]3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz [*]32GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 4X8GB [*]768GB Flash Storage [*]NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB GDDR5 [/list]All for about $4,500. Opting for 8GB of RAM (to upgrade later) and a 3TB Fusion Drive instead bring the cost down to about $3000. Also, the Cubix Xpander is an external peripheral that allows for the use of second GPU, and the 10GB/s Thunderbolt connection allows for additional drives to be hooked up externally -- including the 12TB Thunderbolt RAID. This all sounds impressive, but how future-proof (i.e. ready for the next five years) is this setup? I suspect that it can handle 4K ProRes, but what about 4K RAW (and Davinci Resolve)? I have also been communicating with a custom PC builder on eBay who is going to spec out a workstation specifically designed to work optimally with Adobe CS6 and Davinci Resolve 9. I'll post the results of that when I get them.
