If rumors are to be believed, Apple is all set to launch the next-gen Mac Pro and Mac Mini systems combining Intel Sandy Bridge Processors and Thunderbolt ports by August.

The Mac Pro received its previous update last year in July when the company increased the devices’ processing speed by up to 50 percent after integrating more than 10 Intel Xeon processor cores. The Mac Mini was updated last in June 2010 when Apple installed an HDMI port in the system.

The improved adjustments could be launched at the end of July or during the first week of August.

Cnet’s Brian Tong, who made accurate predictions about the all-in-one desktops in May, revealed that the upgraded Mac system will run on Apple’s upcoming Lion OS at first boot.

MacBook will see a major evolution if the device is integrated with Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt ports, the Apple Insider reported.
