Why I Bought iMac Pro Over Mac Pro!

I’ve been (stuck 😉 on Mac for over 10 years with FCP, and recently I upgrade to the iMac Pro instead of the $52,000 Mac Pro, here’s why…

  1. ben i use iMac 5k with nano texture glass for because a pro xdr display is horrible that just a monitor screen only and dont have a stand also mac pro and keyboard all are not including

  2. Why do Americans talk so fast, please slow down son and take a breath now and then, I have trouble keeping up with you, It's a thumbs down from me.

  3. Hi Ben – Thanks for producing this video. How much difference in performance is there between the 2019 iMac Pro (3.2 GHz 8-core Intel® Xeon W processor, 32GB RAM) vs. the 2020 iMac Pro (3.0GHz 10-core Intel Xeon W processor Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz, 32GB RAM)? Both have the Radeon Pro Vega 56 graphics processor with 8GB of HBM2 memory.

  4. There are some people for whom $ 50,000 is nothing more than one month salary, it's not a big deal. The only problem is I have tons of money but I cannot find the super machine I like.

  5. 99% don't "need" a Mac Pro, but that doesn't eliminate its value. What are the options for those that want a 32"? Mac Mini? In this case, you can spend $7,000 and get a Mac Pro with a W5700X. Given its near infinite upgrading, it has long-term longevity with the ability to launch casual gaming. I find that worth the $3K+ premium over a Mac Mini. I'm really curious what the revision for 2020 will be for iMac.

  6. Should have bought the normal iMac but with the I( 8 core CPU and gone with the Vega Graphics Card. Performs just as well for 4K. Only difference is in RAW files where the iMac Pro utilises the T2 chip. Have a look at Max Yuvrej's video

  7. What about if you use dual screens? You're out of luck with the iMac Pro and the new XDR Display sadly

  8. There's no law that states you have to purchase Apple's XDR display with the Mac Pro. People act as if they're forced to do that. The LG 5k with stand sells for around $1.5k on Apple's website.

  9. Question – What is the quality of RAM Apple sells in the stock machine vs. what you get on Amazon? My friend says the Apple RAM is better quality and shouldn't purchase from Amazon.

  10. You are right man! I bought a 13 inch 2019 macbook pro base model for photo editing since im at uni. This is super portable and works great. Maybe in 5 or 6 years ill upgrade to a better laptop but this one will last a long time for sure ( i hope it will)

  11. I own an iMac Pro for professional video editing, very satisfied with it and it already paid for itself. Works for hours under load like a champ regardless the codec that I throw in FCPX timeline.
    Wise choice.

  12. I cant see why anyone who just makes youtube videos could not get away with using imac pro.

  13. I've been sitting on the fence of getting an iMac / Mac Pro now for about a year. I haven't jumped on the iMac Pro yet, because I wanted to first see how the Mac Pro would fit into things, but more importantly because it has not been refreshed in over two years. Now that I know the Mac Pro isn't for me, I'm still weary of running out and buying an iMac Pro without it being refreshed. Did you have similar concerns, or was it more of an issue of needing a proper replacement now, imminent refresh be damned? (I can't wait too much longer, as I'm suffering thermal issues with the GPU, which are getting worse over time, so I feel like I'm in a bit of a tough spot. I will try to hold on for the refresh, but I don't think I can wait much longer than march or June of next year.

  14. Bullshit. You said you are a youtuber. That's the reason. I got myself a mac pro. You can't upgrade much with imac pro

  15. Excellent computer but overkill for what you are doing. You could get a i9 Vega 48 2019 iMac new from B&H for $3250 and spend a little more on the ram upgrade your self and have $2500 left over.

  16. Ben, Ive been editing on Premiere Pro. I am thinking about switching to fcpx. do you have any thoughts? hard to do it without trying it out.
