Intel announced a 32nm Core i7-980X processor codenamed "Gulftown" this week, sparking rumors of the new chip potentially making its way into a new Mac Pro.
The new processor features a speed of 3.33GHz, six cores capable of 12 threads, 12MB of L3 cache, and 130W power.
This particular processor inside of a Mac Pro has been rumored for months, but now it is believed that the Mac Pro could be updated as soon as next week and feature two of these processors for a total of 12 cores.
The Gulftown processor is set to be released sometime later this month and will be sold under the Core i9 name, with the server version under the Xeon 5600 series title.
