What kind of Xeon-CPUs are used in these Mac Pro? Xeon E5?

Proof that Apple will be terminating the Mac Pro pretty soon. On top of not having 3.0 for a supposed "workstation", Mac Pro continues to be grossly over priced. I can build a better much faster machine for half the price. Shame on you Apple, for ignoring your pro customer base yet again.

Like any would do, Apple should take care of the flagship product to make a statement. This minor update is unfathomable.
