Yesterday I posted an article describing some clues in the CHUD tools for a quadruple-core Mac. Well, there are even more clues there. :)
With the CHUD tools installed, typing grep -binary Quad CPU.menu in the /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras directory reveals:
Single CPUDual CPUQuad CPU
I'm surprised Apple left so many clues behind. The optimist in me might think it means the dual-core 970MP based machines are coming sooner than some might have thought. WWDC 2005 in June seems like the logical venue, but that's still three months away. Perhaps we'll see the new dual-core Macs with OS X 10.3.9, and that's likely coming long before WWDC.
