Mystery box hits 20k+ in Cinebench

A viral marketing video has been released (YouTube - K10 = K(5x2) = K5 x 2) by one of the chip makers as reported here Mystery box hits 20K+ in Cinebench

It is quite subtle as to who its by.

If you cant work in out i've written it below (highlight the next line)

Its Team Blue, aka Intel. As it's advertising IDF Fall '07 (18th-20th / 9 SF) The platform they will be showing is 'skulltrail' which is the new V8 platform for gaming

So it's a Core Duo Quad something or other? Maybe my browser isn't showing the next line to highlight?

Ahh, so. Whoulda thunk that a "simple" color scheme could change things so much? Better not use "neutral" all the time!

oh yeah forgot there was different colour schemes to hide the text under.

Its nothing that exciting really, its an update to the dual cpu platform but this time its gamer orientated (two pci-e x16 slots etc)
For reference purproses my core 2 quad, (@3GHz) scores 9700 ish, so its more than double the performance of my chip. They're probaby running at 3.2GHz or so.
