Universal Shake Shipping in May
Kirk Paulsen, senior director of pro applications marketing, demonstrated Apples high-end digital compositing software running on an Intel Duo Core iMac. This, admitted Paulsen, is not something that could have been done with the PowerPC iMac.
According to Paulsen with these high end applications processors are no longer the bottleneck; instead, hard drives are the bottleneck. Shake 4.1 will natively support Intel Macs and will be shipping in May.
