Is the processor in 8 core 2.93ghz mac pro the intel xeon 5570 or something else???????
Yes it is!!!!!!!!11!!!111!!!
One question mark is enough. We're not blind.
r u sure its not the intel xeon w3540?
3xxx are single socket processors. 5xxx are the ones for dual sockets.
The 2.93GHz dual socket processor is called x5570.
The w3540 is the single socket processor.
Internet is funny. Missing letters and such.
Have a look here:
The 64-bit 45-nm Xeon E5520 (Gainestown/Nehalem) processors each have four independent processor "cores" each with a dedicated 256k level 2 cache, 8 MB of "fully shared" level 3 cache per processor, an integrated memory controller, and "a 128-bit SSE4 SIMD engine". It also supports "Hyper-Threading" -- which "allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core" (so MacOS X recognizes sixteen "virtual cores" on this model) -- and "Turbo Boost" -- which "automatically boosts the processor speed based on workload" (so if an application is only using one of the four cores it will automatically increase the speed of the core in use and turn off the unused cores).
Via custom configuration, this model also can be equipped with dual 2.66 GHz Quad Core Xeon (X5550) processors or dual 2.93 GHz Quad Core Xeon (X5570) processors for an additional US$1400 or US$2600, respectively.
Thanks for your knowledge
