Apple has introduced a new desktop Mac focusing specifically on creative professionals dubbed the Mac Studio. The expansion of Apple's Mac lineup is basically just another Mac Mini with a group of I/O (including Thunderbolt ports and an SD card slot), "outrageous performance" and processing power.
There are two versions of the Mac Studio: the M1 Max version, which starts at $1,999, and the M1 Ultra version at $3,999. Both versions support Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, and up to four Pro Display XDRs in addition to a 4K TV.
The main difference between the two computers is that the M1 Ultra version is 3.8 times faster CPU than the 27-inch iMac and is up to 90 percent faster than the 16-core Mac Pro. The ultra version also supports up to 128GB of memory and has a 20-core CPU with 16 high-performance cores.

The computers are already up for pre-order and ship on March 18. Although Apple didn't announce products like an external monitor with a $5,000 starting price, the Cupertino-based company apparently stopped selling the 27-inch iMac with the latest update.
