Intel X38 vs P35 Chipset

Posted on Thursday, October 04 2007 @ 07:35:29 CEST by

Today we are comparing Intel’s newest member of the 3-series chipset family, codenamed “Bearlake” X38, to the P35 chipset which has been out and about for some time now. Before beginning to review individual X38 motherboards, we have taken the time to compare these two Intel chipsets.

The new Intel X38 and the P35 are very much alike and this comes as no real surprise. If history is anything to go by, there is no reason for the X38 chipset to be all that much better, as the 955X was really no better than the much cheaper 945P chipset. The 975X was again not really any better than the P965 chipset, so why would the X38 be a “much improved” chipset when compared to the P35. Long gone are the days when a chipset could make a significant difference to a system performance. These days chipsets simply offer features, new and improved features, and yes sometimes these new features can improve performance.
