INTEL X38 EXPRESS CHIPSET DRIVER DOWNLOAD
Making matters worse, the release of its latest mainstream chipset, the P35, left the X looking even more pointless and outdated. In practice however, newer chipset designs are usually made only for the newer processor packages, and older ones may not be updated to accommodate for recent package designs. Read on to see how the X38 fares and what you can expect from the first wave of motherboards based on this new chipset. To find out whether these perks are enough to elevate the X38 Express over its blue-collar P35 sibling, we’ve run the first X38 boards from Asus and Gigabyte through a relentless series of memory controller, application, and peripheral performance tests. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! Intel’s mid-range chipsets have traditionally been excellent, so the P35’s success wasn’t a surprise. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing

This 3×8 officially blesses the new eight-pin auxiliary power connectors on cards like the XT. That in turn means the effective bandwidth of a PCIE 2. According to reports, it could be out in as little as one month.
Intel X38: Overclocking Update
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. Peak SATA data rate.
Steam names the best-selling games of No Interruptions Day Shortbread. Nvidia’s high-end chipset remains the nForce i SLI. Read on to see how the X38 fares and what you can expect from the first wave of motherboards based on this new chipset.
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. For Unbeatable performance Supports the latest Core 2 45nm chips Most boards will boast significant bus and memory clockspeed ovderclocking headroom.
Of course, chipst mainstream P35 expdess offers most of that.
Classified as a mid-range product, the P35 added official support for front-side bus speeds up to MHz, came bundled with a new ICH9R south bridge chip, and became the first desktop chipset to support DDR3 memory. If that sounds familiar it’s because Nvidia’s EPP initiative is pretty much identical. The chipsets are listed in chronological order. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Firstly, Intel claims it delivers improvements to memory performance courtesy of a revised memory snoop feature.
However, Nvidia prefers to keep tight control on its competing SLI platform. Our only reservation involves chipsft age-old Intel bugbear, memory bandwidth. Retrieved December 24, Thanks to rather quickly ramping DDR3 memory speeds, a number of DDR modules are on the market and ready to take advantage expeess the X38, as well.
Intel’s mid-range chipsets have traditionally been excellent, so the P35’s success wasn’t a surprise. As is customary for its high-end chipsets, Intel has also rolled out memory controller optimizations that promise faster performance and support for higher DDR3 memory speeds. Yes up to four.
Both the X38 and X48 are guaranteed to be toast in But really, it’s all about the X38’s northbridge chip. This article provides a list of motherboard chipsets made by Inteldivided into three main categories: After all, Intel has a nasty habit of churning out new chipsets so fast the solder has hardly set on inetl boards.
The Series chipsets codenamed Union Point were introduced along with Kaby Lake processors, which also use the LGA socket;  these were released in the first quarter of Finally, to bring the X38 story full circle, we should briefly mention rumours of the imminent arrival of the X48 chipset. Pentium 4-M, Celeron, Celeron D.
List of Intel chipsets – Wikipedia
It’s been kicking around for two years. Fortunately, the X38 also supports DDR2, providing motherboard makers with a measure of exppress and end users with the opportunity to save quite a lot of money when putting together a new system.
That success also raised expectations for Intel’s new high-end core logic chipset: Archived from xx38 original PDF on June 29, Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Those optimizations aim to make the X38’s memory controller quicker than that of the P35, which is a tall order considering how aggressively motherboard makers push memory performance on their mid-range boards.
