    Intel released Quad Core Xeon and Core 2 Extreme today. :)


    I hope to see some variation in Macs.

    That web page is too annoying to wait for

    Sounds cool, kinda obvious next step, progress is always good.

    and so the "should i wait for 8 core Mac Pros" threads begin to emerge...

    For the Mac Pros, dump the 2.0GHz option, and move everything down an option; 3GHz dual core becomes the standard, with 2.66GHz dual core and x.xxGHz quad core.

    I hope they put a quad core option on at least the 24" iMac.

    Sorry, my iBook G3 froze and I rebooted. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I forget most of the world is not on a university connection. Well, freaking Intel should know that. Waiting for Flash splash is ******, what up Intel?

    you could just do it yourself by ripping out the older processors and putting in the new ones

    The Kentsfield? As cool* as it would be, I don't see quad core action in an iMac for long time.
