8-core Mac Pros imminent

Thanks to Apple Insider for pointing out another leak at the US Apple Store indicating new Macs will have quad-core CPUs. The same leak is present at Apple Store Canada. The text reads:
Every new Mac features powerful dual-core or quad-core Intel processors, the world's most advanced operating system, and more. Build your Mac to your exact specifications, or start with our recommended configurations that are optimized for Creative Suite 3.
Current Mac Pros have dual dual-core CPUs. It has been widely speculated that future Mac Pros will have up to two quad-core CPUs (for a total of eight cores), and this leak seems to confirm the speculation (again).

And to think, it was only two years ago when we thought Quad G5 cores was a big deal.
