Sony to Unleash Core 2 Quad Mutha

Illustration for article titled Sony to Unleash Core 2 Quad Mutha

Sony's raising the bar in Japan starting February 10, shipping its latest VAIO R Master desktop complete with the latest Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor inside. This one nearly has it all with a price to match, including a Blu-ray drive, three gigs of RAM and you can even cram 3TBs of SATA storage in there. But look out, if you go top-of-the-line all the way it'll smack you down for well over $8K.

We're sold on these Core 2 Quad processors. We've been testing an HP machine with dual Core 2 Quads on board, and it screams like no other, especially with editing apps such as Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0. But the mild-mannered HP box doesn't look nearly as ominous and powerful as this upcoming Sony VAIO R Master mofo. Bring it to the states, Sony. And oh yeah, put two processors in there instead of just one, for eight-way nirvana.

So the computer is behind that big copier then?

-and is it just me or does that remote look a little bit like it stepped into the shot at the last minute?

Just kidding about the PC, but it is kinda retro in the desktop real estate department wouldn't you agree?
