Without giving much details, those captures shows MacOSX x86 running on a 4 physical CPU-based MacIntel with Hyperthreading enable. One can clearly see 4 physical processors recognized while 8 logical processors are recorded by the CPU monitor. So MacOSX can really manage without problem any MacIntel based on either physical or logical processors.

Peace said:People sure are dismissing an early MacIntel For a community that's supposed to "Think Different"
Not saying this is the "One More Thing".Just a thought..
I do believe that's a real system tho.
Quartz Extreme said:The PowerMacs can't be switched over early. Many of the professional apps, especially those that rely heavily on Altivec, haven't been completely "ported" yet. Remember, there are still many new "PowerPC products yet to come"- SJ. (Dual Core G5) I don't doubt early MacIntels, but the PowerMac certainly wouldn't be first to switch.
i will eat my hat if they release 4 cpu powers this weekVoidness said:Come on people. It's basically dual dual-core processors, that's 4 CPUs. We might be getting this as early as Wednesday if the Powermacs get the PowerPC 970MP. Although It won't have Hyperthreading, which is pretty much useless in most cases.
