For those readers that may have missed the scoop, yesterday Apple quietly released the desktop we all knew was coming: an 8-core Mac Pro. Sporting two 3.0Ghz Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Clovertown" processors, the 8-core build's hefty power comes with a price to match - $3,997.00 for the base model.

Some of the tech specs include:

  • Two 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5300 series processors
  • Intel Core microarchitecture Intel Xeon
  • 8MB of L2 cache per processor (16MB total; each pair of cores shares 4MB)
  • 128-bit SSE3 vector engine
  • 64-bit data paths and registers
  • 1.33GHz, 64-bit dual independent frontside buses
Apple also continues to offer the quad-core Mac Pro models with no price changes. Buyers can opt for two Dual-Core Intel Xeon "Woodcrest" processors in 2, 2.66, or 3GHz flavors.
