Intel was kind enough to let a few members of the press get some time in with their Skulltrail platform, featuring a pair of quad-core Yorkfield processors at 3.4GHz on a Seabird chipset-based motherboard. We also have a glimpse of the new QX9650 processor for the desktop…

“We also saw a trio of extreme machines. One was powered by a 3.0GHz Core 2 Extreme QX9650 (Yorkfield), another was a stock Skulltrail machine equipped with dual 3.0GHz quad-core processors, and the last system was a modded Skulltrail that was overclocked to 4GHz. The modded machine featured a pair of vapor phase-change coolers for the processors, liquid-cooled memory and GeForce 8800 GTX cards, all residing in a custom CoolerMaster case adorned with numerous skulls.”
