Intel about to reveal eight core bliss

  Stuartli 16:21 19 Feb 2008

Intel is set to launch a dual four core socket desktop platform that can be combined with multi-graphic solutions from ATi (Crossfire) or nVidia (SLI).

Intel's Desktop Board D5400XS, when paired with two Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9775 processors, will form the foundation of the Intel Dual Socket Extreme Desktop Platform.

Should keep the keen gamers happy...:-)

Are you talking about this click here ?

Looking at the review from the above website it doesn't seem to be particularly good though. It's based on a server motherboard which does not lend to particularly good 'desktop' performance.

It was originally codenamed Skulltrail - reports from other companies state they were staggered at the speeds available during testing.
