On Friday, Geekbench published new processor scores
for what appears to be a legitimate new Mac Pro model that utilizes eight cores on a single processor. A previous score from the unreleased 12-core Mac Pro appeared back in June
-- suggesting that Apple is planning on releasing more than one model when the redesigned workstation is finally premiered. Though the scores of the two models can't be directly compared due to technical differences, the eight-core Mac Pro solidly beats current eight-core Mac Pros.
