Apple's iMac Pro may have hands-free Siri voice control

  Apple's iMac Pro may have hands-free Siri voice control It includes a version of the A10 chip from the iPhone 7.It's possible that the A10 chip is always running, which would represent a break from the custom T1 chip driving the Touch Bar in some recent MacBook Pro models. That would line up with leaks which had custom ARM chips handling macOS' Power Nap feature, which fetches data while the system is sleeping. The iMac Pro wouldn't have to spool up its power-hungry Xeon processor just to grab your email. And of course, that could be very important for "hey Siri" commands, which could theoretically run even if the Mac is dormant.

Apple today announced the iMac Pro will be available to order on Thursday, December 14 . Pricing starts at ,999 in the United States. Tuesday December 12, 2017 5:04 am PST by Joe Rossignol.

There's also up to 22 Teraflops of graphics performance (wowee) thanks to AMD's awesome Radeon Pro Vega GPUs with up to 16GB of video memory.

Apple hasn't given its Macs as much attention in recent years as its other devices like the iPhone and Apple Watch, and its desktops in particular have been overdue for an update. In late 2016, the company did update its MacBook Pro laptop, a revamp four years in the making.

An Apple spokesman said the company will offer more details about the new iMac Pro on Thursday.

Intel's all-in-one Xeon chip will speed up car connectivity .
Intel's Xeon chips normally reside in distant server rooms or brawny workstations. The company hasn't divulged pricing, although it's safe to presume you won't be buying one for home use. And in case you're wondering: yes, there will be software updates to make sure they aren't vulnerable to Meltdown and Spectre security flaws.
