Intel P35 Express powered motherboard spotted with DDR3 memory slots
Motherboards featuring the upcoming Intel P35 Express variant from the upcoming
desktop chipsets will be some of the first to support
. Initial Intel roadmaps claimed that the first DDR3 support would come late 2007 if industry support caught on.
However, that doesn't mean Intel isn't getting its ducks in a row. The company has already started sampling its DDR3 motherboards and several have
leaked out into the channel
According to Intel guidance, the P35 chipset can feature DDR2 or DDR3 memory, but not both at the same time. The leaked motherboard supports up to four sticks of DDR3 memory rated at 800 MHz or 1066 MHz.
It will also support up to a
1333 MHz front-side-bus
on Socket T, also known as LGA775 processors. LGA775 processors supported by the upcoming P35 Express-based board include Intel Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad and Celeron 4xx-series.
There is no mention if previous Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D processors for LGA775 remain supported on the
. Nevertheless, expect Intel to launch 1333 MHz front-side-bus
Core 2 Duo E6x50-series
later this year. Intel’s Core 2 Duo E6850 1333 MHz front-side-bus processor was
spotted in the wild
earlier this month.
Expect Intel to launch its
-family during its typical sunny seasons, in time for the back-to-school shoppers. Intel’s
-family will spawn five desktop variants. The variants include the
endowed G33 & G35 Express, vPro platform Q33 & Q35 Express, mainstream P35 Express and performance oriented X38 Express. As always, expect Intel to launch a

marketing-wise, newer almost always equals "better". enthusiasts can see through the smoke-screen, but if you present identical pc's with ddr-2 and ddr-3 on the bullet list, the common consumer is going to go with the "-3" model. and ddr-3 further distinguishes intel from (and keeps the pressure on) amd.

You are entirely correct that non performance enthusiasts will want the ddr3 due to the obvious reasons that ddr3 sounds a whole lot sexier that ddr2. I also agree that this will again be another intel "me first" move that will put pressure on AMD to be "me second". As a consumer though, I'm saddened that technologies like this make the light of day before they have truly tangible benefits over their succeeding technologies they inevitably will replace. Yet, with a ddr2/ddr3 (assuming they are the same pin count) compatible motherboards, this could also be looked upon in a positive light due to upgrade paths. Lets all just hope that a ddr2/ddr3 compatible motherboard will perform well with ddr3 ram.
