Intel working on enthusiast features for X38

Written by test

To take on Nvidia


According to Digitimes, Intel is working on two new features for its X38 chipset that should appeal to enthusiasts, Extreme Memory and the Extreme Tuning Utility.

Extreme Memory is similar to Nvidia's SLI memory technology, but it will only work with DDR3 modules and there won't be any support for DDR2 memory at all. The good news is that Extreme Memory will also be available for the P35 chipset and for Intel's next mobile pferformance chipset.

The question is how keen the memory manufacturers will be to add yet another memory tuning scheme, but as it's from Intel, it's likely that we'll see a lot of Extreme Memory certified modules, especially if the memory companies can charge a premium for these products.

Aparently Intel is already working together with Kingston and OCZ and both companies should have samples ready in September.

The Extreme Tuning Utility is again similar to Nvidia's nTune utility and it will enable BIOS tweaks from within the OS. The software can be customised to fit in with the various chipset partners general look and style. For now this will only be available for the X38 chipset, but hopefully Intel will enable it for other products as well.
