Apple on Wednesday updated its Mac Pros bringing 8-core processing to the Mac by adding two new 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors.
"At 3.0GHz, the quad-core Mac Pro runs up to 2x faster than the Power Mac G5 Quad."
The new 8-core Mac Pros will ship with two 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5300 processors. Older models with the 2GHz, 2.66GHz, and 3GHz Dual-Core chips are also still available.
"The two Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Clovertown" processors put eight cores of processing power to work in your Mac Pro, delivering the most cores ever in a Mac," Apple states. "At 3.0GHz, the quad-core Mac Pro runs up to 2x faster than the Power Mac G5 Quad."
Other "Clovertown" features include 8MB of L2 cache per processor and 1.33GHz dual independent frontside buses.
The new 8-core Mac Pro adds $1498 US to the base price of $2,499, and it is available for shipping in 3 to 5 business days for basic configurations from the US Apple Store.
