Apple Mac Pro Running Dual Quad-Core Spotted
 
Anand Shimpi arguably has the best hack all week. Shimpi managed to get his Mac Pro to recognize two quad-core Clovertown processors in a single Mac Pro -- the resulting system ran flawlessly on eight processor cores.

No BIOS updates, no pin-hacks or anything exotic was needed to get the yet unannounced processors to work in the Mac Pro. Shimpi adds "We can't say with 100% certainty that you will be able to upgrade to Clovertown when it comes out, but so far the results are looking good."
