    As this article at the Register indicates there should be new Xeon E5 cpu's very soon. I wonder how soon Apple will come out with new Mac Pros??:rolleyes:

    Sounds good.

    Is it likely that Apple has everything ready to go and are just waiting to install the CPU's?

    It's possible, as they should have had access to Engineering Samples to accomplish that. But it will depend on a number of factors, such as how many people are/were assigned to the development team (hardware + software) to make sure everything is finalized, or will be by the time the CPU's and chipsets ship from Intel to vendors.

    BTW, the hardware is likely still being done by Foxconn, and the software and firmware development by Apple.
