Featuring a S5000XVN dual-socket motherboard, coupled to a pair of Xeon X5365 processors working at 3.0GHz, 4GB of Samsung DDR2-667 FBDIMMs, and a GeForce 8800 GTX the preliminary tests indicated the rig was twice as powerful as a regular Core 2 Duo QX6800. Without any kind of overclocking they ran some SiSoft Sandra tests and 3DMark 06 to get some figures to compare with. Not leaving much to the imagination, the rig pumped out a CPU score of 6556.

We’ll be doing more extensive testing in our full evaluation, but couldn’t resist putting up some of these images and benchmark scores to whet all of your appetites. A rig like this is probably outside the realm of what most enthusiasts think about when designing their own systems, but Content Creation and Multimedia Production professionals would be chomping at the bit for this puppy.
