Yorkfield 3GHz arrives in Vienna

Sneak Preview: ... at least in our labs
While it gets colder in Vienna Intel sends us the hottest stuff available, at least for many hardware enthusiasts.
The next incarnation of the Intel Extreme quad-core Edition in 45nm with an insane amount of 12MB 2nd level cache was sent to our lab for review.
