Is this Apple engineers testing the 6-core model, or is it spoofed?

It's questionable because that's the Sandy Bridge clock speed for the 1660, not the expected 3.6 GHz of the Ivy Bridge version. But the RAM speed is right....

[/COLOR]To that I add the question: how easy is it to fake all those fields in a geekbench result?

As there might only be a Mac Toy going forward, I started looking at Supermicro the other day.

Also, the next VMware Fusion only allows 16 cores per VM.

It's bad that Opteron does not yet have PCIe 3.0 . The price of Xeons is outrageous.

This is going to be big for film post people using the new mac pro:

Supposedly it supports full quality realtime decoding of 6k at 24 fps. Now if you can throw 2 Firepros at it...

12-core single chip will be the top option.

Looks like Apple dropped the ball on this one.
This is a natural progression for the new Mac Mini Pro. It certainly does have more in common with the Mini than the MP.

Given that this new machine breaks ranks, Apple may be testing the waters before releasing something even more powerful/expensive to see if they should continue the line. Apple praises itself and this single chip machines as being up to 2.5x faster than the fasted MP presently available. That is not a bad start.

If the price isn't too crazy (sigh), I may buy one to replace a Mac Mini. I have not had an MP for a long while but I do understand the concern for some professional to be able to get a faster more powerful system. I am far more concerned that when it comes out, it will have USB3 and the new USB3 will come out (much faster) as well as having to deal with Thunderbolt 2.x.

And then you can add another tube on top and 2 more vertically on the sides with whatever expansion you can imagine. That way it will look like the space station. But black.
