Intel has confirmed that it will sample its Skulltrail dual socket machines this year, probably in December time and it looks like this FB DIMM powered machine will be the fastest thing around.
We had a chance to see one at default
voltage and a phase change cooler that rocks at 4GHz. Today they
have an SLI capable system and with FSB 1600 this might be the
fastest gaming platform on the planet. It runs two 8800 GTX cards in SLI.
We got a picture of this machine
rendering with eight threads in Cinebench test and as this is the
best case scenario Intel definitely wanted to show off how faster
this machine really is. We don't blame them, Sculltrail is a show off
thing so why not show it off.
