    When can we expect new processor from Intel that could be possibly used for Mac Pro? This year? Next year?

    The codename is Penryn, which is supposed to come late Q3.

    from Intels Penryn site ...
    "Penryn processors deliver higher core and bus clock frequencies within existing power and thermal envelopes to further increase performance. Desktop and server products will introduce core speeds greater than 3GHz."

    Sorry, I read this:
    http://guides.macrumors.com/Penryn
    Penryn is a mobile chip developed by Intel.

    I guess, like the core duo, they're just going to upscale it to the server procs.

    Check this chart. I think it's going to be Tigerton. Here is another link.

    Tigerton is for multi processor systems (more than 2 processors)

    Sorry, my bad, it was just a prediction. In that case Apple might use Stoakley Seaburg platform. What's the Stoakley Seaburg processor? I don't think I seen it on Wikipedia.

    I don't think there is a codename out there for them yet. There is also alot of confusion, if you read a number of articles, as some say penryn is just the name of the architecture of the new 45nm processors, others say thats the code name of the mobile ones. Yorkfield and Wolfdale are definatly the codenames of the desktop processors (think kentsfield and conroe). The Harpertown name was supposed to be the server version of Yorkfield, but I haven't heard that codename in a while and they werent meant to be out until 2009/2010.
