From ZDNet:

I’m getting tips in from sources who claim that Apple is set to revamp its high-end Mac Pro line, adding a ‘hexacore’ Core i7-980x model to the line up.

All information points to this happening next Tuesday, March 16th.

The Core i7-980x is Intel’s first six-core part. Here’s the spec:

3.33GHz (TurboBoost to 3.6GHz)
6 cores / 12 threads
32nm architecture
Socket LGA1366
130W TDP
A ‘hexacore’ system would represent a significant upgrade for the Mac Pro line.

If you’re thinking of buying a Mac Pro, you might want to wait a few days.
