Four Intel DDR 3 chipsets to arrive in Q3 2007

It looks like Intel is already planning their push into DDR3 memory technologies with a set of chipsets for late 2007.

X38 is the enthusiast top notch chipset scheduled for a Q3 2007 introduction. This is intended to replace the 975X chipset. It served us well but it lived too long. It cannot support DDR 2 memory at 1066, and we see that as a problem for enthusiasts. It supports PCIe 2.0, 2x16 PCIe graphic slots, DDR 3 memory at 1333 and a Quad core support.
