Intel Skulltrail aka V8 pictured!
PCGH.de received a testkit for the upcoming high-end platform Skulltrail. Wanna take a look inside?
In the package: The giant E-ATX motherboard D5400XS with Intel's server and workstation chipset 5400, four FB-DIMM sockets, four PCI Express 1.1 Slots and two CPU sockets for the socket 771 each normally occupied by 54xx Xeons.
In our case we welcomed two Core 2 Extreme QX9775. They are identical with the upcoming QX9770 (expection: the socket!) and come with 3,2 GHz core clock and 400 MHz QDR FSB ("FSB1600"). They each feature 2x6 Megabyte L2-Cache (shared).
The pics in our gallery speak of their own. You can smell the need for PSU power! Just click on one picture and the gallery with over 20 pics opens up.
