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

Try some multi-tasking. You'll quickly find out how inadequate your system is for such a daunting task. I have a dual screen setup. I have 10 season of Friends in a playlist that runs on one monitor, torrents downloading in the background, and I game on my other monitor. I do this quite often on my C2D. Tell me how your S754 64 handles the task. You'll get a very unfortunate surprise. Shoot, the damn thing doesn't even support dual channel memory.
Anyways, I'm all for DDR3. As long as it performs on par with current DDR2, then what do you really have to lose? Early adopters will get stuck with a higher price tag, but every early adopter knows that.
With Intel pushing for DDR3, more companies will start pushing the product and the technology will advance and performance will increase. During this time prices will start dropping for motherboards and the memory.
If Intel wasn't pushing new tech, we'd still be sitting on DDR1, LGA procs, AGP, PCI, dual cores, quad cores, and so on.
Shoot, after Intel stopped supportint PATA on their chipsets, more SATA optical drives started popping up.
