Default Mac Pro...

Can someone explain to me the technology behind their processor?



It's just weird, so wouldn't that figuratively mean that there's four processors in there...

By the way...These babies look so built I love them, though I'll always be with Windows xD.

Yeah, basically. It's like running two X2s simultaneously.

Good to see you're open minded...

So can that be considered as a 'high end' processor combination?

I would rather wait for the Intel Quad Core Extreme to come out...

What's the point in waiting for a Quad-Core when you can get two dual-cores right now? These Xeons are Woodcrest/Conroe ... They are extremely fast. With four sticks of RAM you can run them in quad-channel (256-bit instead of dual-channel 128-bit) ...

What exactly are you talking about "I'll always be with Windows" ... What will you do when Windows disappears?

Ok for now...I'm freaking 16, I have no budget yet to move about.

Lol.

Then again I can always try linux...but I'm just one of those compatibility paranoid type.
