Correct me if I'm wrong, but first Apple needs to update the OS to be 64 bit, which apparently they'll introduce with Snow Leopard. Then, Apple also needs to rewrite Logic for 64-bit machines. To top it all off, every third-party developer that writes plugins also has to rewrite their code so that it works with 64 bit systems.

I think it's gonna be a long, cold winter!

All the small plug-in companies are that last things to get updated. I have several plug-ins that are going on 2 years since they were last updated. Many still do not have true multi-processor support which cause problems from time to time. (CPU load spikes, clicks and pops, mystery crashes).

if the specs were drect copy/paste, I would not trust them since anybody with decent IT-knowledge knows what HyperTransport is (Intel's integrated memorycontroller is called Quickpath)

What is the need for multicore support in a single plugin?
The DAW will distribute the remaing plugins over the other cores?
If one plugin takes more power than a 3.2 Ghz core can give, it is something wrong with the code...

Edit: Ok, you mean the plugins are INCOMPATIBLE with multi-processors, but then you are using really old stuff...

so when the new mac pro arrives, i'll be looking forward to buy an used affordable quadcore, because G5 seems to be too old now to buy.
