This Xeon CPU has yet to be widely released, and if it shows up in a new MacBook in early 2010 it's likely Apple will be the only manufacturer using the chip for a little while. This new processor features six cores, each with twelve threads for the CPU. These chips will have a 12 MB L3 cache, as opposed to the 8 MB cache in current models. AppleInsider reminds us that Apple has a tendency to double the cores for its high end workstations, so it's also possible this could end up being a 12 core machine.
HardMac's source also stated that the new Mac Pros will have a modified motherboard with a 10 GB/s port. These Pros will support both 12 GB and 8 GB RAM modules, as opposed to current Mac Pros which can only handle 4. This means the maximum memory of a Mac Pro could be as high as 128 GB.
