[Jeremy Garchow] "Look at Apple's current i7 offerings, then look at intel's i7 offerings. There are faster i7s available, there are 6 core i7s available. Are they in Apple hardware? No, they are not. They would be if Apple really wanted to play the speed game."

The 6-core i7s are Socket 2011 — as has been extensively discussed, there's no solution for Thunderbolt with Socket 2011 so far. iMacs are configurable with up to an i7 3770, which is in fact the fastest i7 Intel sells excluding the 'K' model of the same chip. (The 'K' series processors are targeted at overclockers and aren't generally offered by mainstream OEMs. And in any event the 3770K has a base clock only 3% higher, an irrelevant difference.)
