Intel X38 to arrive any day now - X48 by year-end?

Posted on Friday, September 14 2007 @ 14:50:18 CEST by

Sources at Taiwanese motherboard makers claim the Intel's X38 should be hitting the market anytime now, with volume production slated for the end of the month. DigiTimes reports the chipset will face competition from the AMD RD790 chipset in November and that the faster X48 chipset should be shipping by the end of the year:
While barely beginning shipments of the X38, however, Intel also plans to launch an upgrade version of the chipset, the X48, by the end of the year with motherboard makers to begin delivering X48 motherboards to shelves in the first quarter of 2008, according to sources close to Intel's roadmap.

The X48 eventually will come with the same chip design as the X38 but will support 1600MHz FSB and DDR3-1600 memory, the sources stated.

Board makers will not be required to change any design work of X38-based motherboards since the X38 and X48 chipsets will use the same PCB (printed circuit board), said the sources, noting that the X38 could also support 1600MHz FSB and DDR3-1600 memory after overclocking.
