Intel late with new CPU?

Potential Mac Pro customers have been long awaiting updated models from Apple, with the last update to the line having come in July 2010.

Anticipation regarding an updated Mac Pro was heightened back in June as several claims of an imminent launch surfaced. Part numbers claimed to be for new Mac Pro models surfaced a few weeks later, but they instead ultimately turned out to be for new Mac mini models and the Apple Thunderbolt Display.    ...

No this is Intel delaying CPUs, so other workstation manufacturers are probably also affected by this delay...

It seems like an AMD Phenom II X4 980 outruns this Xeon E5620-lets see what Apple comes out with next year.

An in depth look into why Apple chose Intel over AMD.
All of Apple's computers, excluding the Mac Pro and the newer iMacs, use mobile versions of desktop processors. AMD did not (and still does not) have many mobile processors that will match Intel's mid-high range, and because Apple is so design-oriented, always striving to cram so much into so little, Intel was the better choice-you don't want your $2000 PC overheating, do you? Or you could put 2 cores in each corner...

It was only until late-2009 that they started to produce iMacs with desktop versions of the C2D.
Apple still uses mobile and all-in-one PC versions of graphics processors for all of its PCs except the Mac Pro.

As I know the sandy bridge will come from AMD
sandy bridge is Intel. AMD's response is AMD Fusion.
