"All information points to this happening next Tuesday, March 16th," Kingsley-Hughes reports. The Core i7-980x is Intel’s first six-core part. Here’s the spec: 3.33GHz (TurboBoost to 3.6GHz) 6 cores / 12 threads 32nm architecture Socket LGA1366 130W TDP "A ‘hexacore’ system would represent a significant upgrade for the Mac Pro line," Kingsley-Hughes reports.
