"the high-end Mac Pro workstations have dropped off so considerably that the desktop machines are no longer particularly profitable for the company."
quoted from Appleinsider.(http://www.appleinsider.com/articles...ro_update.html)
Sad rumor but most likely...
As for the mac pro being discontinued we should see soon as the xeon proccesors they are likely to use come out this week.
I think there is more of a symptom that something will happen,
keep the hope!
Pretty much all the major players offering 2P standalone workstation solutions have announced Xeon E5 based workstations today. HP Z820 seems impressive and I am loving what Next Computing are doing. The 16 core portable Radius EX All-in-one seems like a perfect fit for a variety of digital cinema applications. I would expect Apple to follow up shortly with a Mac Pro update.
Apple won't announce anything until it's actually available and almost ready to ship. That's how they are with their computers.
