However, depending on your motherboard, that top memory speed may only be available if you’re also running a MHz front-side bus. It even boasts an embedded Linux OS that offers a quickbooting alternative to Windows for light web browsing and even Skype telephony.
Intel’s Nehalem modular CPU architecture is rapidly approaching and with it a whole new platform apporach from Intrl. But perhaps the most significant new feature is the introduction of PCI Express 2.

Intel engages in a process called binning with its processors, sorting what are essentially identical chips based on the clock speeds at x38x48 they’re comfortable running. The arrival of a new Intel motherboard chipset isn’t always a cause for much rejoicing. Against Painfully pricey Soon to be replaced by the X48?
Actually, the Asus is a bit of a stunner all round. That in turn means the effective bandwidth of a PCIE 2. The same approach could be applied to north bridge chips, making the X48 a bin sort of X38 chips comfortable running a MHz front-side bus.
Steam names the best-selling games of If that sounds familiar it’s because Nvidia’s EPP initiative is pretty much identical. With this faster bus, the X48 looks poised to supplant its predecessor atop Intel’s chipset lineup, which means a new wave of motherboards is coming from all the usual suspects.
Record breaking performance numbers in all application types are what you can expect from any half decent X38 board.

That’s a layout which can expres mean one thing to PC enthusiasts: The most obvious upgrades over the X include official support for MHz bus Intel processors along with the latest 45nm Core 2 chips and DDR3 memory.

Unusually for Intel, its outgoing high end chipset, the X, was a seriously crusty old critter. But its new X38 performance chipset is a little different. It’s been kicking around for two years. That strikes us as particularly petty on Nvidia’s part, and while it blunts some of the X48’s appeal, CrossFire has matured into a viable and in some cases preferable alternative to SLI.
Our Verdict The new weapon of choice for performance enthusiasts. Both feature 32 second-generation PCI Express lanes, providing substantial bandwidth to not only single graphics cards, but also CrossFire configurations. The headline feature for PCIE 2. For Unbeatable performance Supports the latest Core 2 45nm intrl Most boards will boast significant bus and memory clockspeed ovderclocking headroom.

Motherboard makers have some leeway when it comes to defining bus dividers, which is why you’ll find plenty of P35 Express boards capable of clocking DDR3 memory at MHz, despite the fact that the chipset only intek supports memory bus speeds up to MHz.
In simple terms, memory snoop allows the caching of commonly requested data in the northbridge, thereby avoiding the need to fetch it from main memory. It’s essentially a set of ehnanced memory profiles designed to boost bandwidth with compatible memory DIMMs. What’s more, the X38 retains support for DDR2, giving both board makers and buyers the option to stick with more affordable DDR2 memory technology until DDR3 prices begin their final descent from the stratosphere.
