    its a typo.

    that reminds me of a Simpsons episode

    "Come to Homer's BBBQ. The extra 'B' is for 'BYOBB'"

    "What's that extra 'B' for?"

    "That's a typo." :D

    its inevitable that 8 core Xeons will be released in the future.

    I refuse to buy a Mac Pro until it's got no fewer than 256 256-bit cores.
