Ars Technica tested the new Apple Mac Pro 8-Core (Nehalem Xeon CPUs). Ars published a very detailed review of what they call a personal dream machine.
Quote from the review: "There is no denying that the dual socket Mac Pro Nehalem Xeon is a beast of a machine for certain applications, and it will only get faster as software developers write better multithreaded code. It definitely isn't the best option for Photoshop or certain video tasks, but for 3D rendering and simulation with the right code base, it is monstrous. The case is still the model of good desktop design and, as the guy who's using the renderer most likely to be seen hyper-threading, the eight-core Nehalem Mac Pro is a personal dream machine.But it's a dream that comes with a punishing pinch of reality: the price."
