MacAddict is reporting Intel says its quad cores are ahead of schedule so the 8 core Macs may be announced at Mac Expo in January, or even before the end of this year.

Ready to ship to customers by November, so maybe an 8 core MacPro well before Christmas if Apple's among the first to receive them? :)

Or do I wait five years to upgrade, when they'll have the 80 core chip (http://news.com.com/Intel+pledges+80+cores+in+five+years/2100-1006_3-6119618.html) available? So that'll be a 160 core Mac Pro. ;)

Does LW support 160 cores..?

Only if you install 22-and-a-half copies...
