Intel is beginning to ship the new processors today.
Today, the iMac Pro's entry level Xeon processors begin with an 8-Core processor. It's unknown at this time whether Apple will decide to introduce this new entry-level 6 Core Xeon E-2100 processor in a future iMac Pro later this year at a more reasonable price point. Today the entry level iMac Pro sells for US$4,999.
