Skulltrail (http://firingsquad.com/hardware/intel_skulltrail_performance_preview/) "With 8 processing cores running at 3.2GHz, a 1.6GHz FSB, and 12MB L2 cache, the Skulltrail platform packs enough punch to handle any task."

Comming later in Q1 2008 !

Intel has some really nice stuff these days, and for a solid year now. I believe they will stay at the top for awhile.

Well there is about a $1300 build (JUST in 2 cpus and mobo) combined and that is for a lower-dn Yorkfield, but if you want the Extreme CPU's then your looking at about $2800.00 in 2 x cpu's and mobo combined.

WOW... pricey.

Outrageous pricing will be the order of the day of course.
