Maybe this is the answer to all the recent speculation about new MacPros (or Not), anyone heard about this? :

Apple Plans Release In Late Fall Of OSX Licensed Systems

It’s the announcement video professionals have been waiting for – New Mac Pro workstations will be released later this year along with the next generation of OSX dubbed Stallion. In a surprise move Apple also announced that these new workstations will not be made by Apple, but their new OEM OSX License partners HP and Dell.

The first model to be released will be a new HP Z2 All-In-One workstation. New features include two Thunderbolt ports, Apple Fusion drive, NVIDIA Kepler based Quadro K-series GPU and integrated 27” HP Retina Dreamcolor display.

HP will also be releasing a new z900 quad Xeon workstation with four Thunderbolt ports, up to 256GB of RAM and three Nvidia Quadro Kepler cards.

Dell has also announced that they will be releasing a new line of Precision Workstations and Laptops later this year all running OSX Stallion.

The next generation OSX Stallion will be designed with a more open architecture, but also include an integrated licensing scheme that will tie into iTunes and the Apple app store.

Apple Director of OSX Licensing Sidd Finch said “OSX Stallion is optimized for multiple Xeon processors, up to 256GB of RAM and multiple NVIDIA Kepler based Quadro cards. In our tests running FCPX on the Z2 running OSX Stallion you can edit multiple streams of 2K footage in real-time. The Quad Xeon z900 Workstation can handle multiple layers of native 4K footage with ease.”

HP spokesman William Newell said “The combination of OSX Stallion and HP workstations will deliver more horsepower than creative content producers ever dreamed possible. Video editors will be able to run their choice of Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer or Apple FCPX Non-Linear Editing software. All tapping into the incredible hardware, technology and performance designed into these new workstations and OSX Stallion."
