Intel X48 only for extreme users

Posted on Thursday, October 04 2007 @ 20:06:47 CEST by


Rumour has it that Intel's X48 chipset will be available to motherboard makers in the second week of November.
We're expecting a January launch alongside faster 1,600MHz FSB processors, as the X48 chipset has official support for this bus speed. Saying that, it looks as if the X38 chipset, or at least boards from Asus and Gigabyte already supports the faster bus speed.

Other features include DDR3 1,600MHz memory support and lack of ECC memory support, which shows that this chipset has been tuned for performance, since the X38 can be used with ECC memory for entry level workstation products.
While the Intel X38 will still have support for DDR2 memory the X48 will only accept DDR3. The X48 will be a chipset for the more wealthy enthusiasts as motherboards with this chip will likely cost over 300EUR.
