    For all you Woodcrest fanboys hoping and praying to have that cpu in your mac pro. Forget about it , Kentsfield is almost ready and is already sampling , Coolaler over at XtremeSystems already has one and it's kick ass. CPU will be available Jan '07. Just in time for MWSF so i will say this is further evidence that there will be no Woody for MacPro ...servers only people. This thing is basically 2 E6600's(2.4ghz) stamped on the same die, but abosolutely decimates the G5 Quad(or anything else i've seen) just look at the Cinebench Scores. AMD/IBM Fanboys are going to jump out thier windows after seeing these scores.

    The Quad Core PowerMac G5 2.5Ghz scores 1102 in Cinebench(barefeats)

    It would have been easier to just post the numbers here rather than have everyone trawl through all the crap on that website you linked to.
