New Intel Eaglelake Chipset Information Revealed
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Many enthusiasts are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the upcoming Intel X38 Express, so I know it will be almost painful to read about the successor to the X38. Nevertheless, DailyTech has just posted a brief Article discussing the multiple Eaglelake variants.
Lets see what they had to say:
Eaglelake spawns the usual P, G and Q variants for consumer and business platforms. The Eaglelake-family features support for Intel Penryn-family, Yorkfield and Wolfdale, and other processors with front-side buses up to 1333 MHz. Intel continues to equip the Eaglelake-family with DDR3 and DDR2 memory controllers. DDR3-1333 and DDR2-800 are still the memory speeds of choice with Eaglelake. Eaglelake also introduces PCIe 2.0 for discrete graphics to the mainstream with all variants.
Much like with the X38 Express, Intel is supposedly devoting a lot of effort to making this chipset very overclocking friendly, so the results should be stupendous. I find it somewhat bizarre that the X38 Express will launch sometime in August, and then be so quickly replaced in Q2 2008. Progress is always a good thing, but such a quick transition will surely raise some eyebrows, and potentially make consumers hesitant to buy X38 motherboards. Anyways, I suppose only time will tell!
