Awesome! And I thought they were going to cap off at 2.66 for the 8 core pros.
p.s. Take the apostrophe out of your title. The Mac Pros are not posessing anything.
Where are the blu-ray drives? This update doesn't make sense. I'd like to think that they were waiting for NAB but got sick of all the complaints/dip in sales, so they rushed out the octo as a bto option but this doesn't make sense. There were other features ppl were expecting too, like new graphics cards. I doubt they will drop a new form factor with new features in a fortnight now. They were obviously just waiting to get clovertown to 3 Ghz so that their product line was differentiated enough.
kwood, i'm pretty sure the displays were at $699. i only remember this b/c i bought one when they first came out (gulp...1699 cdn). DOH!
i'm actually pretty disappointed by the lack of price cut on current models. I know they don't HAVE to, but i was kind of hoping the prices would drop a bit.
MAYBE, without a significant announcement and press release, this means that newly designed mac pros will be released in June as the rumour is abound.
Each core is 3GHz. which means a total of 24Ghz per processor...although it doesn't work quite like that - explaining it more is probably another thread...and probably for someone that understands it better than I doi'm not quite sure what the diff. is between the 3.0 GHz quad and 8 core... they are 3.0GHz total or each chip, i don't understand
after all this waiting, nothing but a super-expensive ultra high end option? No change whatsoever to the base configuration, any of the options, or any of the pricing... just the 8 core high end. too bad.

The way I understand it
2 x 3.0 Dual Core option is 2 chips in the machine, both chips having 2 cores = total 4 cores.
2 x 3.0 Quad Core option is 2 chips again, only each chip has 4 cores = total 8 cores
each chip runs at 3.0Ghz
