With the new options, the top-line model of iMac Pro will be available at a hefty price tag of $15,927 (roughly Rs. 11,35,900) in the United States. The updated configurations seem to be live in all markets where Apple currently offers the build-to-order iMac Pro.
As per the Apple website, the consumers will now be able to add up to 256GB DDR4 RAM to their iMac Pro, up from previously available maximum of 128GB. The 256GB RAM upgrade will cost $5,200 (roughly Rs. 3,70,900). Also, the Radeon Pro Vega 64X GPU option has been listed with a price tag of $700 (roughly Rs. 50,000). Other configuration options remain unchanged. The new configuration options were first spotted by 9to5Mac.

The base model of the computer includes 3.2GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W processor, 32GB 2666MHz DDR4 RAM, Radeon Pro Vega 56 with 8GB of HBM2 memory, and 1TB SSD storage. The iMac Pro was originally unveiled back in June 2017 and went on sale in December 2017. The computer arrived in India in February last year.
