Submission + - Intel's eight-core Skulltrail platform reviewed ( 1

EconolineCrush writes: "With two CPU sockets primed for eight processor cores, dual front-side busses, and four graphics card slots that support CrossFire and SLI multi-GPU schemes, Intel's new Skulltrail platform is an absolute beast. Skulltrail is primed for enthusiasts, as well, with Intel equipping the platform's motherboard with tweaking options rarely found on dual-socket alternatives. All this sounds great, but as The Tech Report's in-depth review of the platform illustrates, only a precious few applications fully exploit Skulltrail's prodigious horsepower. It's no doubt an impressive platform, but perhaps one that's a little ahead of its time."
