We will show the comparisons against other chipsets in the full board reviews and offer in-depth overclocking results with multiple CPU and memory configurations. But whatever happens with the X48, one thing is for sure. Thanks to rather quickly ramping DDR3 memory speeds, a number of DDR modules are on the market and ready to take advantage of the X38, as well. Record breaking performance numbers in all application types are what you can expect from any half decent X38 board. We are very close to answering those questions as testing is nearing completion now.

Of course, the mainstream P35 already offers most of that. Anyone worried about Xbased boards becoming rapidly redundant might prefer not to pull the trigger for a month or two. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile. Firstly, Intel claims it delivers improvements to memory performance courtesy of a revised memory snoop feature.


X38 – Wikipedia

Retrieved 5 November Moreover, the P35 has proven an extremely impressive performer at both stock and overclocked settings. It even boasts an embedded Linux OS that offers a quickbooting alternative to Windows for light web browsing and even Skype telephony. Auxiliary peripheral chips are actually a key ingredient of almost any motherboard that uses an ICH9 series south bridge.

The chipset is not a disappointment at this stage in the game, but the whole launch event fiasco and lack of choices available in the marketplace is disappointing to us. On paper, that gives the X38 an advantage over the P35 which tops out at MHz.
