Quad Processor Intel Mac?

MacBidouille posts some screenshots which claim to demonstrate an unreleased Quad Processor Intel-based PowerMac with Hyperthreading support.

Without giving much details, those captures shows MacOSX x86 running on a 4 physical CPU-based MacIntel with Hyperthreading enable. One can clearly see 4 physical processors recognized while 8 logical processors are recorded by the CPU monitor. So MacOSX can really manage without problem any MacIntel based on either physical or logical processors.


Apple announced the transition to Intel-based processors in June of this year. Apple has offered Intel PowerMacs to developers for testing. These Developer machines house a single 3.6GHz Pentium 4.
