This is on the front page of nvnews btw, where I found it. I just googled for reviews and benchies.
Intel is really burying AMD WRT...anything, high end, low end, pricepoint.

I'm waiting for this to show up in jakups sig. :rolleyes:

Intel is on a rampage!

Those systems are sick! especially the skull trail one. That one is so powerful that it can make babies. :headexplode:

What caught my eye was the relatively low score achieved by the QX9650 in 3DMark06. A score of 11899 is far lower than I would have expected.

Can anyone verify if this is anywhere in the ballpark?

Remember everyone thought conroes numbers were initially inflated when the first benchies were released?

Personally I'd love to have this thing just for bragging rights alone...babies later.:D

The most important part is the CPU Score which is very good for default settings!Maybe, but thats a dumpy score. Think its the X38 board with early BIOS or something?

It is. The configuration says pre-production x38 and pre-production engineering bios.

The only thing that matter as far as CPU goes is the CPU score and that score is good.
The overall score is kinda low I agree but that shouldn't be a problem caused by the CPU. No worries :D
I'd still hit it. :cool:

She knows - I gave her caek and she's good. :D

Seriously, I'd love to see where the price will settle after a year or so on the market, or what else will be out there.

Is it really true that Intel's only making 2000 Skulltrails?

It would seem so http://www.techarp.com/showarticle.aspx?artno=462&pgno=0

There will be a very limited production run, with only 2000 units to be manufactured.

It's gonna be VERY expencive mithinks!

EDIT: Oh, it says $600, so yes it is.

Buffered RAM and 45nm Xeon's only too.

Only 2000??? What's the point in making it if they're not going to mass produce them?

To rip off the living #^&$&^$^%$% out of the 2000 people who actually get their hands on one.

And then later down the road decide to mass produce them for half of the original cost. rotf.

TBH I thought it would be moar moneys. Though I would have thought it would have all solid caps for an uber high-end board. 4x SLI is nice :)
