As part of a range of iMac upgrades on Tuesday, Apple has entirely dropped its original 8-core Xeon option for the iMac Pro in favor of a 10-core configuration at the same price.
Alongside its release of an updated 2020 iMac, Apple has made a minor but significant chance to the iMac Pro. By changing the entry-level model to a 10-core Xeon processor configuration, it has made that more powerful option less expensive.
The original 8-core Xeon base configuration is no longer available even as a build-to-order option. Instead, while the iMac Pro still starts at $4,999, it now comes with a 10-core Xeon processor which previously cost around $800 more.
Apple has not changed any of the other specifications of the iMac Pro, and the online Apple Store hasn't given it the "New" label that it has previous put on similarly minor specification changes for the Mac mini.
In full, the iMac Pro's new base processor configuration is a 10-core 3.0GHz Intel Xeon W, with Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz, and 23.75MB cache. The previous entry version was an 8-Core 3.2GHz Intel Xeon W, with Turbo Boost up to 4.2GHz, and 19MB cache.
