Sure, based on the number of X48 motherboard reviews that have been out over the past few months you'd be hard pressed to find someone that thinks this chipset hasn't already been launched, but according to Intel at least, it has not.  This Digitimes report talks about MSI and Gigabyte announcing their own products while waiting for Asus to clear the channel of all their hordes of X38 chipset motherboards.

The Intel Skulltrail will probably beat the pants off of any AMD Spider platform you can build, but on the other hand Gigabyte's GA-MA790FX-DQ6 will only set you back about $300, half the price of the Skulltrail motherboard.  It will also be much easier to find, as it is not limited to 2000, total.  [H]ard|OCP checks out this Spider platform board and it'

Gigabyte has introduced their newest feature for motherboards, Dynamic Energy Saver, which switches power phases on or off, on the fly.  With a high end 12 phase motherboard, you can expect to see idle mode running as if it were a three phase board.  Tweaktown explains DES in more detail here, and if you want an example of what the power consumption of a DES board is like, check out their review of the
