Intel Skulltrail has arrived

  • Here's a snip from The Tech Report's review:
    If you came into this review expecting that Skulltrail's "more is better" approach would yield consistent performance dividends across a broad range of applications, you may be disappointed to find that this system's eight fast CPU cores can't always outrun the top single-socket quad-core systems. The reality is that only certain types of applications will fully harness the power of a system this exotic—and we are, by and large, using the best examples of widely multithreaded software we could find in their respective categories. Programs that don't scale well beyond four threads are the norm, not the exception. That's both a developer support problem and a computer science one; extracting performance from multiple CPU cores can be difficult.
