Apple Unveils 8-Core Xeon-based Mac Pro

Apple on Wednesday introduced an 8-core, Intel Xeon-based Mac Pro that won't appeal to people on a tight budget.

Starting a $3,997, the new machine includes two 3.0GHz Quad Core Xeon 5300 series processors with a total of 16 Mbyte of Level 2 cache, and 1.33GHz front side bus. Apple is still offering the Mac Pro with two Dual-Core Intel Xeon 5100 series processors with clock speed options of 2.0GHz, 2.66GHz, or 3.0GHz. The older machine starts at $2,499.
