So I noticed when Apple announced the 8-core PowerMacs there didn't seem to be any conversation sparked here. I know the release was a bit expected. However, it still seems like a nice and fast machine. It does feel a little bit like an interim product, not shipping with OS 10.5 nor the BluRay DVD (I think the OS will provide the drivers for the DVD, so the two are linked IMHO).
Are most of the speed intensive softwares taking advantage of multiple processers with multi-threaded programming these days?
