Tweaktown heard from their sources that ASUS doesn't have any X48 motherboards yet. They claim the Maximus Formula and Extreme motherboards will feature the regular X38 chipset and not the faster X48.
Asus is expecting to have its X38 boards out in retail within the next couple of week’s time, although it might even be sooner. If this is indeed true, then Asus could be the first company to have X38 based boards in retail, but time will tell.
We’ll try to dig deeper into the X48 story and maybe things will become clearer during IDF, as Intel might officially explain the X48 situation then. If the information we wrote about earlier is correct, then the X48 might just simply be a faster version of the X38 which will be released later this year
