Intel Corp. revealed at the Intel Developer Forum that it would commercially launch its Intel X38 core-logic for high-performance desktop computers on the 10th of October, a little later than it was generally anticipated. The new core-logic set will bring-in high-speed DDR3 memory, PCI Express 2.0 as well as overclocking utility from Intel itself.

“Intel has developed a new chipset of platform technology called X38. […] It will launch October 10th. We are shipping production parts to our customers today in anticipation of that launch,” said Pat Gelsinger, chief technology officer at Intel Corp.

Intel X38 chipset will bring the technological “creams” of 2007. It will support dual-channel PC3-10600 (DDR3 1333MHz) with Intel Fast Memory access, PCI Express 2.0 bus with multi-GPU technology capability and some other performance improvements, such as flexible overclocking capabilities and extreme memory profiles (XMP) technology.

“Intel X38 has unlocked bus ratios, so they can crank [the speed] up. It has easy memory overclocking capability. We have doubled the bandwidth of the PCI Express Bus to graphics on the chipset. And we’re incorporating […] a new software tuning utility that allows you to tune directly to the BIOS to get the optimal system performance, so that you can win game benchmarks,” Mr. Gelsinger said.

It is interesting to note that the world’s largest maker of chips also reportedly plans to release Intel X48 core-logic by the end of the year. The new chipset will bring support for 1600MHz processor system bus (PSB) as well as PC3-12800 (DDR3 1600MHz) in addition to features already available on Intel X38.
