Mac Pros at NAB
Apple is planning far more than just the introduction of new creative software at its NAB event, according to T3. The publication cites a well-placed source who claims that the Mac creator will introduce not only an expected upgrade to Final Cut Studio but also the hardware and operating system that will take advantage of its technology. Both Mac OS X Leopard and an eight-core Mac Pro will make their official debut at the April 15th presentation, the informant says.
Although unverified, the information correlates with earlier revelations. Apple's UK branch recently leaked Mac Pro details on its website, and PiperJaffray analyst Gene Munster recently estimated Leopard's release during the same mid-April window. No mention was made of whether Final Cut Studio would see a benefit from the new OS X update.
