Nvidia’s high-end chipset remains the nForce i SLI. They typically carry a three-year warranty. Please refer to the Launch Date for market availability. Contact your OEM or reseller for warranty support. DDR3 memory prices remain high, though, with 2GB kits costing more than double that of their DDR2 counterparts at the same speed grade. Intel’s engineers have built several optimizations into the X38’s memory controller, including what Intel calls a “flexible clock crossing architecture” and improved prefetching circuitry.

Intel’s mid-range chipsets have traditionally been excellent, so the P35’s success wasn’t a surprise.

This isn’t a new trend; the all-around goodness typical of Intel’s mid-range chipsets has long made it difficult for the company’s flagship offerings to shine. We refer to these processors as boxed processors.

Fortunately, the X38 also supports DDR2, providing motherboard makers with a measure of flexibility and end users with the opportunity to save quite a lot of money when putting together a new system. 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.

Those eight-pin aux power connections can deliver up to W of power, in addition to the 75W of juice routed through the slot itself and the 75W available in a inrel aux PCIe power plug. However, we’ve yet to see an ICH9-based motherboard make use of the chip’s networking capabilities. Note that ECC memory support requires both processor and chipset support. Enthusiasts lapped it up, and in the months since, we’ve seen a wave of P35 motherboards that offer great performance and tantalizing overclocking potential.

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.

Functionality, performance, and other benefits of this feature may vary depending on system configuration. As is customary for ijtel high-end chipsets, Intel has also rolled out memory controller optimizations that promise faster performance and support for higher DDR3 memory speeds.
