The new Mac Pro in the first desktop computer to use the new Intel “Nehalem” Xeon single-die, 64-bit 4-core processors with integrated memory control and fully shared cache on the chip.
It will be available as singe chip (4-core) and two chip (8-core) configurations. The new Mac Pro introduces a cool new Turbo Boost: a dynamic performance technology that automatically boosts the processor clock speed based on workload. If you’re using an application that doesn’t need every core, Turbo Boost shuts off the idle cores while simultaneously increasing the speed of the active cores. The new Intel Xeon “Nehalem” processors also support Hyper-Threading, which allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core. So an 8-core Mac Pro presents 16 virtual cores that are recognized by Mac OS X. Call us for more info.
