We just got off the phone with our contacts at Hewlett-Packard who are configuring what’s likely to be the next hotrod here in the VM testing labs. In fact, we learned that Intel today, officially gave HP the go-ahead to start shipping units with their latest dual-core chip design, Woodcrest. This review unit will be sporting dual Intel Xeon (Woodcrest) CPUs, a couple of fast SATA drives, 2 GBs of RAM all packed into a quieter and cooler HP 8400 workstation. We haven’t got the final price tag, and this is obviously above the base model, but we figured many of you would want to see how some of your favorite video editing software packages will run on a next-gen editing system. It ships to us this week, so stay tuned!
