Snow Leopard earlier than expected / desktop quad core imacs soon

Posted: November 20, 2008 in Apple

Apple announced that Snow Leopard will finally ship earlier, in the first quarter of 2009 (was expected not sooner than the second half of 2009). Then this Intel optimized OS (and that uses OpenCL and GrandCentral) should be more efficient than Windows, for at least one year.

Meanwhile new imacs fitted with quad core Nehalem (Corei7) processors are expected for the January MacWorld. For the first time they will use desktop processors – in fact special low-power versions -, instead of mobile architecture. Then we shouldn’t expect new mid desktop models using the MacPro enclosure (these will keep the Xeon processors, and then remain expensive).
