Gulftown will go into the single-socket Mac Pro, and two six-core 5600 parts will go into the two-socket towers, brining the core count up to 12 in Apple's highest-end machine.
12 core Apples. . Mind you I'd hate to be the one at Apple responsible to make these 12 core machines still have the 5.0 star energy rating. Ie. the man who has to make these mammoths use less juice.

Newegg has been selling Intel and AMD hexacore cpu's for over a month or so now. Super expensive though. The xeon is like $2,499

The only thing Microsoft could make that would not suck, would be a vacum.

And by that time you'll see intel making 8 and 10 core xeons. And then you'll say

No clue... hopefully soonish. It's been a while, though the Xeons they're using now aren't bad chips.

There's no way I can justify myself getting a Mac Pro at this point in my life. Heck, all I'll need in a couple of years will probably be an iMac. Though, I'll probably have both at some point. I am always a sucker for a shiny new toy.
