New Mac Pro Specs?

Update: Macrumors forum member Mr.X posted the following more realistic but less exciting specs for Mac Pros:

ATI RADEON HD 4870 graphics card [So much for NVIDIA love affair]
MAC PRO 2.26_8CX/6X1G/640/GT120/SD-USA
MAC PRO 2.66QCX/3X1GB/640/GT120/SD-USA

All part numbers listed below:

Engadget’s anonymous tipster threw out these slightly unbelievable specs on the soon to be new Mac Pro: 

The Mac Pro will come in eight-core configurations from 3.0GHz to 3.6GHz and 16-core configurations in 3.6GHz and 4.0GHz flavors, and it sounds like it’s going to be even funkier on the video tip — our tipster says it has two regular DVI ports and a mini DisplayPort. Sure, okay. It’s also apparently a bit lighter than the current model, at 35 pounds instead of 42.

Only 35 pounds and 16 cores?  Who can’t get excited about that?  While these are unbelievable, Apple, in the past, has had access to new Intel hardware before anyone else.
