iMac rumor mill suggests new models could be coming next week

26 Apr

This one is obviously still very much in rumor territory, but a couple of separate reports have cropped up today that suggest Apple could be set to debut some updated iMacs electronic gadgets as soon as next week.

That includes a report from 9 to 5 Mac that iMac orders are being delayed until May 2nd, despite the fact that they’re still listed as shipping within 24 hours on Apple’s website, and a separate confirmation from a trusted source of the site, who says that Apple will stop shipping iMacs to retailers this week in advance of next week’s supposed release.

That’s further backed up by a report from Mac Rumors, which cites another source who says that Apple will be changing the promotional materials in its retail stores for a launch on Tuesday, May 3rd. Details are comparatively light on the rumored new iMacs electronic gadgets themselves, but the safe money seems to be on Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt ports.

Matrox strikes at NAB, first to market with Thunderbolt products

12 Apr

Word out of NAB is that Matrox, known best for enabling day-traders to run an excessive number of monitors off a single graphics card, will be the first company to market with peripherals designed to use Thunderbolt. All the latest models of its MXO2 family of video I/O boxes will be shipping with Thunderbolt on board, while budding film makers using the current gen MXO2 tech gadgets will be able to push 10Gb worth of pixels per second by picking up an adapter. Matrox didn’t announce a firm release date or price, though we expect it will fall in line with the current products, which range from $449 up to almost $2,400 for the MXO2 Rack with Matrox Max. They’re not exactly must have accessories for the average user, but if you simply can’t wait any longer to put those Thunderbolt ports to use, it’s the only game in town.
