Get your 8-core 3.46 GHz Mac Pro Today!

Want a 2010 8-core Mac Pro running at 3.46 GHz? You can have one now. (2009 models are still limited to 3.33 GHz 4-core).

The upgrade isn’t cheap (Intel Xeon CPUs are very expensive), but if you must have the fastest thing, it’s now an option.

An 8-core at 3.46 GHz is a near optimal solution: fastest clock speed and 8 cores serves just about any need. A 12-core 3.46 GHz is a great option also, but will cost even more (available soon), and will be useful mainly for specialized software.

More options are coming within a few weeks, including 6 cores at 3.46 GHz, and 12 cores at 3.46 GHz.

Balance it

Of course, such upgrade are best done up as an MPG Pro Workstation, because without the right drives and memory, a fast CPU will stall.

See my CPU upgrade page for thoughts, and the OWC CPU upgrade page for pricing and availability.
