i7 XEON version - Apple's first

Apple is selling new Mac Pro desktops with the new i7 XEON chip. This should be good! Looks like they're the first - also mentioned on Develop 3D.

The power of Xeon muliticores + Hyperthreading + i7's memory throughput.. should be wonderful for 3D work. Revit has typically not run very well on XEON cores. I wonder if this will change with the Nehalem architecture...
