Professional Velocity? You could say that.

This morning Apple released an improved set of Mac Pro configurations, namely a faster processor. With up to 8 core Intel Xeon (Cloverton) processors, the Mac Pro has consolidated its place as the computer of choice for graphics rendering and video editing. The Mac Pro is now up to 2.1x faster than the previous model, the Power Mac G5 Quad core. Apple is using two quad core processors instead of the old (yet not so old) dual core processors, with each running at 3.0 Ghz. With its equivalent of eight cores at 3.0 Ghz, the Mac Pro is staying ahead of the game (Dell doesn't offer the 3.0Ghz Cloverton chip in any computer yet).

Check it out here.
