Well if this is true this could be a great call !!
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 ;-)
