    RUMOR: Apple to release Mac Pro ‘hexacore’ Xeon Core i7-980x on Tuesday, March 16
    Wednesday, March 10, 2010 - 03:48 PM EST

    "I’m getting tips in from sources who claim that Apple is set to revamp its high-end Mac Pro line, adding a ‘hexacore’ Core i7-980x model to the line up," Adrian Kingsley-Hughes reports for ZDNet.

    "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.


    EDIT:

    I see I was beaten to it this time. ;)
