Intel let a variety of tech enthusiast sites run wild with benchmarks today showing off its forthcoming eight core desktop platform, code-named Skulltrail. You can get eight-core computing already in the form of Apple's Mac Pro or a pair of Intel Xeon 5400 processors, but Skulltrail marks the first eight-core platform we've seen aimed at both high-end workstation computing as well as PC gaming. The Skulltrail motherboard not only supports two CPUs, but it also supports both Nvidia's SLI and ATI's Crossfire multi-graphics card standards. The problem is that for all of Skulltrail's power, PC gaming isn't quite ready for it. And a better eight core solution could be right around the corner.
