Apple Unveils 8-Core Mac Pro

There had been rumors regarding the 8-Core Mac Pro for quite some time, but Apple wasn't until today that they made the news official. Apple has updated their product line-up with a new 8-Core Mac Pro that features a pair of Quad-Core Xeons, running at speeds up to 3.0GHz.

"Eight cores or four - Opt for the 8-core Mac Pro and you get the power of two Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Clovertown" processors running at 3.0GHz. Or choose a quad-core Mac Pro featuring two Dual-Core Intel Xeon "Woodcrest" processors and decide how fast they fly: 2.0GHz, 2.66GHz, or 3.0GHz. At 3.0GHz, the quad-core Mac Pro runs up to 2x faster than the Power Mac G5 Quad."

Even if the Mac isn't your thing, you have to admit Apple builds some slick looking machines.
