    How about just a single core/single processor that is just really fast?

    Have you been under a rock for the past few years? They tried that and it didn't work... Or are you being ironic ;-)

    Isn't it too early to talk about Nehalam based mac pros when penryn version is not even announced yet?

    With 16 cores you could edit several video-projects simultaneously!

    If only the human brain had 16 cores.

    And you would need 32 hands.
    That´s 320 fingers.

    :D

    Well the Harpertown thread was started over a year before we are likely to see them announced, so... ;)


    Some information for the thread anyway: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nehalem_(CPU_architecture)

    Count me in! If the new Pro gets released in Jan, it will mean you'll be buying 07 tech in 08. To hell with that!

    Please don't make fun of my house. You may live in a high-rise bannana tree... but I happend to like my very sturdy rock. It stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter (due to great insulation and solar power). The roof is very sturdy and the upkeep is minimal.

    For your information smarty pants, the Pentium II chip in my computer is more than powerful enough to handle all of my computing needs.

    The Harpertown Thread Only Started 6.5 Months Ago - April 4, 2007

    Why do you spread misinformation like that? The Harpertown Thread only started April 4 this year - only 6.5 months ago. 16 cores is probably 2 years out. This is a totally phony thread. :rolleyes:

    My bad, I thought you started it when techreport published that stoakley article last november. Also Intel have hinted at 8 core processors in 2008.

    I'm glad you like your rock, and your Pentium II. You stick to your knitting and let the rest of us enjoy the dual core mass-bandwidth processor structure, m'kay?! ;-)

    Actually, 32 hands have 160 fingers, unless you are a mutant.;)

    Is it just me or does it seem like the software is not keeping up with the hardware these days?

    By the time I have enough money to buy a Mac Pro, we'll be up to 64 cores. :(
