That's the news from our friends at Macworld.

They ran benchmark tests on the 2GHz and 3GHz models of the Mac Pro, the new Intel-based desktop with two dual-core Xeon processors. Macworld found the 3GHz Mac Pro faster than the 2.7GHz dual-processor Power Mac G5 in most tests, the notable exception being that of Adobe Photoshop CS2, which is not yet optimised for Intel processors.
