This increase in bandwidth comes courtesy of faster signaling rather than wider data paths; PCIe 2.

LG HU85L lntel needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. Retrieved 12 February Customize The Tech Report Record breaking performance numbers in all application types are what you can expect from any half decent X38 board. Although the X38 could almost certainly act as a very good host to a pair of GeForce cards in SLI, Nvidia continues to lock out third-party chipsets in its graphics drivers.

What’s more, the X38 retains support for DDR2, giving both chlpset makers and buyers the option to stick with more affordable DDR2 memory technology until DDR3 prices begin their final descent from the stratosphere. These profiles make it easier for less experienced users to tune or even overclock their memory through a series of profiles rather than forcing them to manipulate individual timings and bus speeds.


Making matters worse, the release of its latest mainstream chipset, the P35, left the X looking even more pointless and outdated.

Yes up to four. As a result, Intel is the only chipset manufacturer offering support for DDR3 memory.

The Nehalem microarchitecture moves the memory controller into the processor. This page was last edited on 14 Decemberat On paper, that gives the X38 an advantage over the P35 which tops out at MHz. Pentium 4-MCeleronCeleron M.

It’s essentially a set of ehnanced memory profiles designed to boost bandwidth with compatible memory DIMMs. Triton II [19] [20]. Retrieved December 24, Retrieved from ” https: The headline feature for PCIE 2.

Intel’s X38 Express chipset

For chipzet long as it lasts 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. At the very least that makes them excellent candidates for overclocking enthusiasts. In the meantime, we have received an avalanche of requests centered on which board performs best out of the available products currently for sale.


I have been have stability issues with patriot memory at standard clocks and was hoping your update would provide some insight.

A new feature for the latest Intel chipsets is hardware virtualization support Intel VT-d. 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. Not listed below is the chipset see Xeon chipsets which is compatible with Nehalem mainstream and high-end processors but does not claim core iX-compatibility.

That’s a layout which can only mean one thing to PC enthusiasts: Core 2 Duo, Celeron, Celeron M? Coffee Lake chipsets series. Overclocking Update by Gary Key exress October 24, 4: Retrieved 31 October
