Jobs silent on hexacore Mac Pro at WWDC

The anticipated hexacore Mac Pro did not make an appearance at WWDC today. There is an outside chance of an incremental upgrade to the hexacore chip tomorrow June 8, but that would be a bit surprising with the iPhone and iOS taking center stage and no doubt all Apple’s available resources are aimed squarely at making that effort yet another blockbuster.

More likely is a quiet slipstream upgrade of the Mac Pro 2-3 weeks from now, or perhaps even July or August. Apple is now primarily a media company (iPhone, iPod, iPad), and the Mac Pro ranks very low in terms of importance to Apple’s bottom line.

More than ever, it seems likely that any upgrade to the Mac Pro will be a yawner with probably little more than a hexacore CPU instead of quad-core CPU, which will have little bearing on most every photographic effort..

In the meantime, if a new or refurbished Mac Pro saves you time and/or increases reliability now, consider an MPG Pro Workstation, taking into account the quad-core vs 8-core shootout. My top recommendation remains the 2.66Ghz quad-core “Burly” MPG Pro Workstation, with the 3.33GHz model a smart move for increased interactive responsiveness.
