Hey guys,

Well if this is true this could be a great call !!

From MacRumors

HardMac provides some long awaited rumors about the overdue Mac Pro and iMac updates. According to the site, Apple won't be releasing a new Mac Pro until "end of summer" with the iMac revision to follow a few weeks later.

They also report that Apple will be introducing two new technologies into their desktop machines: USB 3.0 and faster FireWire:
On this occasion, Apple should inaugurate two great innovations, the arrival of USB 3.0 and a faster Firewire interface, 1600 or 3200. Thus, Firewire will not forgotten.


The also report that Lightpeak isn't expected for another year, and, of course, we won't see Blu-Ray in these desktop Macs either.

Blackmagic must be jumping up and down as this will now allow all the scopes software/harware run on MAC .. makes me think if there was some forward planning here ! also drive speeds will double and I hope render will half ;-)

Any news on a USB 3.0 PCI-E card for those of us who already have an older model?

Sonnet just released one for windows. I can't imagine a Mac version to be too far behind. It might need on OS update, though.

for those speeds it would probably be worth the update? A whole new Mac Pro though... kinda pricey.

Not a new computer, a new OS update so that OSX recognizes USB3.

Here's the link to the windows only version:
