Puget Systems Works Closely with Intel to Ensure Newly Launched 'Deluge-ii' System Fully Exploits "Skulltrail" Performance for the most Immersive Gaming Experience

SEATTLE, WA (February 19, 2008) - Puget Systems (www.pugetsystems.com), a boutique integrator of custom PC systems for enthusiasts, gamers, consumers and SMB markets, today announced that its newly launched high performance gaming system, Deluge-ii, is being offered with Intel's new dual processor based gaming and media creation platform, code-named "Skulltrail."

Intel is launching the Intel Dual Socket Extreme Desktop Platform, formally codenamed Skulltrail, this week at the 2008 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. It is designed to provide extreme high-end enthusiasts with a fantastic media creation and gaming experience. The platform features two quad core Intel Core2 Extreme QX9775 processors and the Intel Desktop Board D5400XS featuring 4 PCI Express x16 Gen 1.1 slots with support for up to 4 graphics cards.

Puget Systems' Deluge, which launched last month, is a finely tuned performance platform, custom designed and hand built to meet the requirements of the discriminating gamer. An extreme, ultra-high performance gaming system, Deluge features overclocked Intel 45nm Penryn processors, and is now optimized to take advantage of the significant performance gains provided by the Skulltrail platform in a custom liquid-cooled enclosure, designed specifically with Intel for this platform.

"Our collaboration with Intel on the launch of Skulltrail is a prime example of how Puget Systems partners with industry leaders -- the innovators who are driving the newest and hottest developments in enthusiast computing," said Jon Bach, president of Puget Systems. "We've been working closely with Intel since the early days of Skulltrail to ensure we had a complete understanding of how to deliver a computing experience that fully leverages all that Skulltrail has to offer. The result of that collaboration is Deluge - a bleeding edge gaming rig that takes full advantage of the Skulltrail high performance platform."

"Intel has worked closely with Puget Systems in bringing Skulltrail to market," said CJ Bruno, Director of Americas Marketing, Intel Corporation. "Puget Systems provides a robust computing environment in which Skulltrail can flex its processing muscle so users of this system will enjoy the truly immersive and exciting experience."

Every Deluge system from Puget Systems is custom tailored to individual customer requirements.
