For those who crave more performance than what four processing cores and a single graphics card can deliver today, Intel Corp. offers the Intel Dual Socket Extreme Desktop Platform. Formerly codenamed Skulltrail, this is one of the first desktop platforms to support two Intel quad-core processors for a total of eight processing engines and a choice of multicard graphics solution, says Intel. The Intel Desktop Board D5400XS, when paired with two Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9775 processors, forms the foundation of the Intel Dual Socket Extreme Desktop Platform. Each Intel Core 2 Extreme processor QX9775 offers 12Mbyte of L2 cache, a 1,600MHz system bus and four cores running at a brisk 3.2GHz.

The Intel Core 2 Extreme processor QX9775 is available now at an MSRP of $1,499 each.

Intel is one of the exhibitors in the upcoming IIC-China 2008.
