Hexus went to Taiwan and spotted some new products like the Abit IX48-MAX motherboard. This Intel X48 based motherboard should be available in January 2008:
The answer lies with abit's IX48-MAX motherboard, based on the soon-to-be-announced Intel X48 high-end chipset. The X48 packs in official support for upcoming (Yorkfield-based) 1600MHz FSB processors and should provide a slew of performance-oriented options in retail boards' BIOSes. Other than that, it's mostly X38 fare, including 2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 graphics-card slots, ICH9R southbridge and support for XMP memory.

abit's IX48-MAX will be a DDR3-1600-supporting motherboard, highlighting the performance and, dare we say, expensive nature of the enthusiast platform.
