Apple readies 27-inch LED Cinema Display and 6-core Mac Pro

Pros using Mac products will have a couple new choices starting in June reports AppleInsider. According to sources cited by the publication, Apple is working on its second LED backlit Cinema display and new updates for the Mac Pro desktop.

The new Cinema display is a 27-inch LED backlit unit that is basically a larger version of the 24-inch display the firm already offers. Sources familiar with the new screen says it has been in the Apple labs for a while and is often called the K59. Resolution is said to be 2560 x 1440, very close to the typical 30-inch resolution of 2560 x 1600.

Apple is also reportedly set to launch a 6-core update for the Mac Pro by way of adding the new Intel Xeon 5600 series CPUs to the mix. The updated Mac Pro is also pegged for a June launch and will offer 6-core chips in 2.66, 2.8, 2.93, and 3.33GHz flavors.
