    And Apple releases.....

    Are these the new Harpertown Xeon processors? I'm not up with the Xeon naming scheme.

    I believe Harpertown comes in November.

    Don't worry, I'm clueless on this Xeon crap too.

    The 73xx series are the multi processor chips, Tigerton. There is a distinction between dual processor capable chips and multi processor, in this case four sockets.

    They were released fairly recently and are much more expensive than their DP counterparts. These are based on the Clovertown dies, which are based on the 65nm Core 2 Duo die.

    We are expecting the 54xx series, or Harpertown to make its way into the next Mac Pro. Which will be based on the 45nm Penryn die.

    Confusing, but take a look at the Wikipedia Xeon article, it is quite good: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xeon

    If you want to come up with a theory as to why the Mac Pro will be using Desktop processors, be my guest. Otherwise please stop posting garbage that is completely unrelated. Trust me, it is no coincidence that arn hasn't posted your "rumor."

    You have been debunked multiple times.
