X38 does 1600FSB?

 

Great news for Gigabyte enthusiasts. The new crop of X38 chipset motherboards, due out on the 10th of October according to official reports, has the ability to support 1600 MHz FSB and 45 nanometer (Yorkfield) processors.

Not everyone has ramped up their hardware to have this ability, but some of those who have, are making it known. See here.

What this means is that when Intel launch their new Yorkfield processors, the X38 should have no problem in harnessing all that 45 nanometer quad core extreme power. The bad news is that according to sources, the GA-X38-DQ6 is ONLY about 2% better at overclocking than the Gigabyte P35 series of DDR2 motherboards.

Will BIOS improvements be able to make the upgrade worth it? Let’s hope so.
