Including Benchmark testing!

Pro: 8 cores, Corssfire and SLI capable (an industry first), 16GB capable

Con: Cost (a true Skulltrail will run about $6k(us), Slow FB RAM

With Skulltrail Intel really is aiming for those with more money than sense, and those who actually could use 8 cores in a workstation environment. Skulltrail is by Intel's definition the D5400XS motherboard and two QX9775 LGA771 processors. After that configuration is up to the user.
