...and Intel delivers!
Intel has a new Xeon chip and board out marketed towards the Gamer market, but boy oh boy is it fast enough for anything else!
2 x Quad Core (Penryn-based 45nm) Xeon w/12Mb L2 Cache (24Mb total)
4Gb DDR2-800 (2x2Gb)
"Quad-SLI" - Although it looks like 2 Geforce 8800GTX's, perhaps 2 8850G2X's or 8800G2X's?
Either way the amount you can push it above Intels specs is pretty nice. 4Ghz from 3.4Ghz is a respectable overclock from Intel, obviously it can be clocked higher with better equitment and a little modifications.
Here are my ideas to make this insane system even faster!
2 x Quad Core (45nm) Xeon w/12Mb L2 Cache @ 4.4Ghz
8Gb DDR3-1667Mhz CL5.0 QUAD CHANNEL (4x2Gb in Quad Channel)
2 x 8800G2X / 8850G2X (Quad SLI? There is no mention of the actual cards)
Water/Compressor cool the CPU's, voltage regulators and north and sothbridge to achieve stable overclock of CPU
Now clearly that is going to handle any game, but how does it handle 22Mp RAW Images from a 1DsMkIII
But - The question is...can it play Doom? (
doom 1 for those who think im semi-serioius and mean doom 3 lol - the question is thing is an internet joke if you didn't get it!)
