OUCH!  If the test score number is near the same when the final 2013 Mac Pro is released, that is simply going to be embarrassing for Apple.
What would you rather have?   An updated 2012 Mac Pro with dual CPUs, card slots, drive bays, updated to current tech, or the newly announced 2013 Mac Pro?
In less than a day... instructions how to crack the CC suite are now online...  So I certainly doubt piracy had any part of Adobe's decision to go the rental route...as they also would have made it a lot more difficult to pirate...as it turns out it's quite simple.
All that matters is Cinebench scores...  Let's see some numbers.
Yes, the new Xeons are 12 cores...   http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Intel-Xeon-Ivy-Bridge-EP-Server,21972.html   Apple should have built this as a dual processor box.
If ASUS can make a dual LGA 2011 board, why can't Apple?   http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131817   And this is why you'd want a dual socket motherboard...   http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Intel-Xeon-Ivy-Bridge-EP-Server,21972.html   I think we'd all prefer 24 cores over 12....
I hope we see a new Mac Pro design at next years WWDC.  Dual CPUs, 8 ram slots, proper hard drive bays, card slots, and an option for an optical drive.  
  No, I'm in Hollywood working in theatrical and broadcast design.  Last thing I want is a 1970s ashtray on my desk with a bunch of cables hanging out of it.  Then not being able to upgrade the graphics card?  Apple loves prosumers, hates professionals.
Apple once again proving they hate professionals.
What happens when the upgrade and your plugins don't work anymore? You're screwed?
