It's not the next drug, but it is Intel's next-generation ultra-high-end motherboard

Although this might be a little inconsequential to post in a blog, I just wanted to point out that Intel's next-generation Skulltrail replacement is technically on the roadmap for Q4 2008. 

It's name: Smackover.   This server motherboard, rebranded as a halo desktop product, will only compete at the ultra-high-end enthusiast segment -- a market AMD recently exited.

Also like Skulltrail, Smackover is essentially a server motherboard with overclocking abilities for the upcoming Nehalem processor, also slated for release in Q4 2008.  The board will use the Tylersburg server chipset with ICH10R. 

Intel designates its product codenames off various points of interest on U.S. maps.  Smackover, as it would happen, is actually a small town in Arkansas.  It had to be somewhere I suppose.

Intel guidance is light on details, though representatives (off the record) would confirm that the board features 3-channel DDR3 and an LGA1366 socket. 

Just remember friends, smack kills!

If you're speaking of MN, then one needs to include towns like Fertile, Climax, or Moorhead. There once was a tragic newspaper headline that read: "Fertile woman dies in Climax on her way to Moorhead."

Yep, geographically, at least, it's possible.

LOL, that's funny. I've heard of Moorhead (though I never read it *that* way), but Fertile and Climax are new ones to me. I'm not from Minnesota, just visit there yearly; my in-laws have a house on a lake in nw MN. I always get a laugh when we drive past the turnoffs to Nimrod and Oink Joint Road (off the 74 just north of Wadena).

the magic of Google:

That's probably a photo of the sign for the other end of the road, as he describes it as being off the 10 past Wadena; I've never been past Wadena on the 10, I always see the sign off the 74 north.

I don't know any more about the road than that guy does, but a hog farm was also my guess. Now if it were somewhere in the South, perhaps the road would lead to an awesome BBQ rib place called the Oink Joint.

What was the topic of the article I'm supposed to be commenting on again? Clearly I've forgotten.
