    Multithread PowerPC processors will be coming to the Mac. Will/How will multithreaded processing be used in the Unity Engine?

    Will the Unity engine be able to take advantage of a multithread Mac?

    Also, could this affect Unity in a positive way? So that it can be used for XBox360 development? Since the Xbox360 uses a 'tri-core' PowerPC processor.

    We already use 3 threads in unity.
    (Main Loop, Physics, Audio)
    But there is a lot more we can offload when those machines become more common.
