AnandTech: Apple's Mac Pro: A Discussion of Specifications

AnandTech: Apple's Mac Pro: A Discussion of Specifications
By the end of this year, Intel will be shipping Clovertown, a quad core version of the dual core Xeons you see in today's Mac Pros. If Apple chooses to, with minimal effort, it could release 8-core Mac Pro systems in a matter of months (assuming Intel keeps its accelerated CPU schedule).
Full speed ahead!

Oh man, this is crazy! Well Intel have said the think they can manage 64 cores by 2010 (or is that 2012, I can’t really remember), but hey! 64 cores!! The Megahertz war is well and truly over! It’s now the 'Core Wars - The Phantom Megahertz'

I'm certain that clock speed will make a come back at some point, but probably not for many many years.

Now, just what are we going to do with all that power?
