[Rick Lang] "The 12 cores claim made me think it must be dual 6-core CPUs but Apple didn't explicitly say that. Other people are claiming it is only a single 6-core hyper threaded processor, so really just 12 threads. I can't believe the reality distortion field under Tim Cook is going to claim 12 threads is the same as 12 cores so still hoping there is a single 6-core option and a dual 6-core offering. But we know even the entry-level Tube will have two GPUs!"

You can clearly see there's a single CPU socket in the photos Apple has posted, and it seems unlikely they'd post photos of a single socket version of the machine if there were a dual socket version.

So, it's almost certainly going to be a single next-generation Xeon E5. If I recall correctly, these showed up on a leaked roadmap some months back. Based on how Intel prices its higher core count CPUs, a 12 core model is going to be... not inexpensive.
