Ex-Skulltrail

Intel made an official announcement that they have changed Skulltrail’s name into the Intel Dual Socket Extreme Desktop Platform. Not a very wide decision I think, but they probably know better. The gaming platform is based on the D5400XS and on the 3.2GHz QX9775 Core 2 Extreme chips, priced at $649 and $1,499 respectively.

The test results show that the 3DMark06 score was of 6481 and the Cinebench 10 score was of 20,160 when combined with the CrossFire ATI Radeon HD 3870 cards. Reports say that they will start shipping the ex-Skulltrail as of next month.

“Congratulations” for the new name!
