here's no real need to worry though, as graphics cards will work just fine.
Intel isn't planning on fixing the issue either, since it's apparently only related to some x4 and x8 cards, such as RAID controllers and dual or quad network cards and these aren't really intended for the X38 chipset.
There are some other minor issues with the chipset and according to some of the motherboard manufacturers we've talked to, there are some problems when it comes to making their own board designs as Intel hasn't provided a design kit this time around.
