Apple may be about to equip its Mac Pro desktop with Intel four-core Xeon processors, if an inadvertent posting on the company's UK online store is to be believed. The Mac maker's taken the offending entry down now, but not before a number of websites spotted it overnight. A search for 'Mac' yielded a number of entries, one of which mentioned the Mac Pro now with "quad-core or eight-core processing power".
The Mac Pro currently ships with a pair of dual-core Xeons, allowing Apple to claim the machine contains four processing cores. Substitute the dualies for quad-core chips and you have an eight-core Mac Pro.
