Taking some of the fun out of next week’s MacWorld Keynote, Apple announced new Mac Pros and xServes, each offering up to eight cores of Xeon goodness. The Mac Pros come STANDARD with eight cores (ranging from 2.8 up to 3.2Ghz) and support for dual 30-inch Cinema HD Displays, which is just ludicrous by about any standard. Of course, if you’re really a glutton for punishment, you can still install up to four graphics cards, each with support for two 30″ displays, meaning EIGHT giant screens. They’re taking the whole “Pro” thing seriously these days, which is really nice to see.
And now, we can just hope that new MacBooks, MacBook Pros, iMacs, iPhones and other new kinds of hardware are on the docket for next Tuesday.
