iMac Pro benchmarks are hard to find as the Intel CPU used in these systems is often custom and made only for Apple products but it seems that iMac Pro benchmarks have leaked over the internet and it is likely that the upcoming iMac Pro will feature custom Intel Xeon CPUs with 10 cores and 20 threads clocked at 3 GHz.
The system also features 64GB DDR4-2666MHz memory which should be plenty for all the content creation applications that you use. Plus it should allow you to do multi-tasking without any hiccups. The W-2150B Intel Xeon processor found in the iMac Pro benchmarks will be replacing the Xeon E5-1600 series.

The CPU features 13.75 MB of L3 Cache and has a base clock of 3.3 GHz and can boost to 4.5 GHz. From the iMac Pro benchmarks, we can see that the system scores 5345 in single threaded tests and multi-threaded performance score of 35917. It should be noted that this is not the top of the line iMac Pro as it only has 10 cores and the flagship model will come with 18 cores.
The iMac Pro is meant for professionals and content creators and that is where all these cores and threads will come in handy. With the additionals cores and threads, creators will see the difference in rendering times and CPU intensive applications. Also, check out the HP Z-class workstations that feature dual Xeon CPUs.
