Intel V8 media creation platform tested

The guys from The Tech Report took a look at one of Intel's V8 Media Creation Platform. This is an eight-core desktop monster:
If you're prone to such speculation, you'll be pleased to hear Intel has concocted an answer to that very question in the form of its "V8" media creation platform. V8 is Intel's tentative first response to AMD's dual-socket enthusiast platform, Quad FX. Like Quad FX, V8 draws on workstation/server-class technology to take desktop PCs to new heights.
