    post a old article on pc's here go back as far as you want.
    here is one that i found.
    Intel responds to AMD’s Quad FX with 8-Core based PC

    The showcase took place at CES 2007, today. Intel revealed a new PC concept that was created to counteract AMD’s 4×4 gamer platform. The new system is called “V8″ and a demonstration took place with a pair of Kentsfield Xeon’s (quad-core). That’s a total of 8 physical cores.

    The system is running at 2.4GHz and uses 1066MHz system bus and FB-DIMM memory. The graphics card is supported by a single NVIDIA 8800GTX. According to Intel officials the “V8″ platform managed to score 6089 points in 3DMark 2006.

    Unlike AMD’s Quad FX platform, Intel’s “V8″ system will require FB-DIMMs while Quad FX will work with regular unbuffered memory. The AMD Quad FX platform can also support multiple GeForce video cards in SLI configuration, while the “V8″ is currently limited to a single graphics card.


    However, the competition spirit is still strong. AMD is not far away from releasing something that won’t be far away from a “8×8″ system based on quad-core Opteron processors. So with Intel and AMD making their moves, it’s Apple’s turn to hit the spotlights. They already launched their dual-xeon Mac Pro platform in the middle of last year, but it’s time to keep up with the technology.
