    i'm sure that's a lame question but with snow leopard coming out, i was wondering if my machine will be able to take advantage of it.

    my mac pro has Dual-Core Intel Xeon 2.66

    thanks!

    I believe they said it would work on ALL intel macs, no? :confused:

    The only machines not using 64bit processors are the Core Solo and Core Duo machines. Any Xeon or Core 2 Duo machine will be 64bit

    Definitely is 64-bit. Even says it on the box :)

    So, it will run on a Core Duo but it won't use all the grand-central goodness? Right? :confused:

    It won't use 64 bit, but it should be able to implement GCD, since it's part of the core OS.
