Digit news - Intel plans June dual-core processors launch

Intel are launching new dual core Xeons. These are 64 bit chips and currently support 2 cores, though 4 or more cores are planned in the future.

Though nothing has been announced, it's likely Apple are waiting on these new chips to replace the G5 PowerMacs which are already dual core and support up to 2.5GHz. Intel chips are likely to run up to 3.4GHz. With faster Intel chips and a 64 architechture, they have the chance to up the stakes in the power computing sector, though it will still rely on Apple and other software vendors to get their pro applications into Universal Binary format to realise the speed increases.
