In the meantime, we have received an avalanche of requests centered on which board performs best out of the available products currently for sale. However, it’s not guaranteed they will play nicely with any MHz bus desktop processors Intel might launch in future. More information on the X38 delay. The quick overview we are presenting today will help set the stage for those articles by answering our maximum FSB rates attained with the Intel Q and E DDR2 performance was poor and was sometimes worse than P35, which made it a more expensive motherboard for less if you didn’t care about gaming. I believe you need to go up to the i7 before your performance really gets that much better. Until now Intel always released a single high end desktop intended chipset in order not to confuse users but things may soon change as its rival company, Advanced Micro Devices plans a number of new products itself which are aimed at the same market segments.

X48 left, X38 right – read the last three letters of the top line.
Retrieved 31 October Gigabyte has exclusively shown bit-tech roadmaps of its upcoming products – chipste most notable of which is its new Dynamic Energy Saver software which will be rolled out in Jan.
Until now Intel always released a single high end desktop intended chipset in order not to confuse users but things may soon change as its rival company, Advanced Micro Devices plans a number of new products itself which are aimed at the same market segments. P43 chipset is supposed to be the same as the P45 but has reduced features.
Support for all NetBurst based processors was officially dropped starting with the Bearlake chipset family. Of course, a lack of official information from Intel about the chipset only propagated the continuing rumors around the X48 and the apparent demise of the X38 in short order.
This is great news for those that just recently dropped a heap of cash on a high-end ASUS X38 or P35 motherboard as they will support the next generation of Intel processors without having to spend a cent. The MSI X38 Diamond is arriving next month will have tons of features in its flagship product, including a revised liquid Circu-Pipe heatpipe arrangement. Intel’s Nehalem modular CPU architecture is rapidly approaching and with it a whole chipseh platform apporach from Intel.
However, may not be long for this world If that sounds familiar it’s because Nvidia’s EPP initiative is pretty much identical. The Z68 chipset which supports CPU overclocking and use of the integrated graphics does not have this hardware bug.
Retrieved 12 February Lithography refers to the semiconductor technology used to manufacture an integrated circuit, and is reported in nanometer nmindicative of the size of features built on the semiconductor. Socket LGA Clear queue Compare 0. The launch of the Intel X38 chipset occurred just a few weeks ago and even by the most optimistic viewpoint, it was nowhere as successful as the P35 rollout last spring.
Testing Intel’s X48 chipset: ASUS P5E3 Premium WiFi
Error Apr 8, However, we are still not ready to declare the chipset a winner. More information on the X38 delay.

Intel Reveals The X48 Chipset
ShogoXT Apr 8, Actually, the Asus is c38 bit of a stunner all round. Members Current visitors New profile posts Search profile posts.
Thread starter viczulis Start date Apr 7, Pentium 4-MCeleronCeleron M. Record breaking performance numbers in all application types are what you can expect from any half decent X38 board. Joined Jun 1, Messages 1, 0. The performance of the X38 was clearly not a step above the P35 upon release.
While Intel said nothing about plans to release desktop processors using the MHz PSB, it is yet possible that such processors will come under the ”Extreme” designation as only they will be able to fully use the technologies that are said to be implemented into the X48 core logic chips. They have a FSB wall and they’re not recommended for overclocking. In xhipset of overclocking, P45 has done the best, but a few specific models of the other chipsets P35, X38, X48 are known to OC well.
However, Nvidia prefers to keep tight control on its competing SLI platform.
