Intel's X38 refresh appears on its latest roadmaps
A memo forwarded to
reveals that Intel's X48 chipset has been added to the company's roadmap. The X48 is an updated version of Intel's X38 chipset, which was released by Intel a little over two weeks ago.
The Intel X48 chipset features support for Intel Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, and Core 2 Extreme processors. In additon, the chipset also supports Intel's
processors, which are yet to be released.
For those of you who have been paying attention, you'll notice that all of the features named so far are also present on Intel's X38 chipset. In fact, the only real new feature that the Intel X48 comes with is support for 1600MHz front side bus. As of right now, Intel doesn't plan for any other new features.
Intel previously launched its
X38 chipset on October 10, 2007
. The chipset had been delayed
a number of times
due to manufacturer support. As of right now, availability of Intel X38-based boards is still scarce.
Those looking to purchase Intel's 1600 MHz front-side bus 45nm
processors in November will have to use
a server-based platform,
, to take full advantage of the increased bus speed.
Intel has so far not set a solid NDA-lift date for its X48 chipset other than the vague indication that the chipset will be announced in Q1 2008.
After the X48 launch, the company will also release two last LGA775 chipsets: P45 and G45, in Q2 2008. These chipsets will feature Intel's updated southbridge (ICH10) and support for 1600 MHz front-side bus. However, these new chips are
not compatible with LGA1366
, which are slated for release in Q4 2008.

What to expect
10/27/2007 4:20:45 AM
As of right now, availability of Intel X38-based boards is still scarce.
Just an example of what to expect from mobo manufacturers in the future-More flexibility & more options.
A new motherboard from DFI called the LP UT P35.
This is a "3" series enabled motherboard based
on the P35 chipset codenamed "Bearlake".
The UT P35 comes in two basic flavors based on what memory you wish to support.
The LP UT P35 T2R supports DDR2 while the LP UT P35 T3R supports the new DDR3 standard.
The boards are virtually identical so be sure to get the right version to support your memory option.
The 3 series chipset family consists of basic 4 core logic systems.
The P35 and G33 are separated by an integrated graphics core while
the X38 and G35 are slightly enhanced versions of the P35
The is just an example-All Tire 1 mobo manufacturers have similar product offerings giving
More flexibility & more options.
