“We have already looked at the X38 in detail with our GIGABYTE X38-DQ6 board, however this board was only running DDR2 memory. Today we have been given our first DDR3 supporting X38 from ASUS, the P5E3. How does it fair compared to GIGABYTE’s X38 and P35T? Let’s have a look see.”

“Just as how the GA-965P-DQ6 was the flagship of the Ultra Durable series, a new ‘DQ6’ board would take the helm of the Ultra Durable 2 line. However, due to the nature of the P35 chipset, Gigabyte has two models in production, the DDR2-only GA-P35-DQ6 and the DDR3 variant, GA-P35T-DQ6.”

“It is small, has HDMI output for High-Def viewing, decent sound and embedded graphics for those who only game in a little way. As far as being a gamer oriented product the Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H is mildly in that category, but no CrossFire support puts it in the low spectrum and onboard DX9 only graphics are considered in the same fashion.”

“To boil it down, this processor will blow you mind if you ever personally witness it ripping through data and information like an F5 tornado through a Oklahoma trailer park. It is equally as awe-inspiring and you might just lose your house paying for it.”

“It’s a difficult question, but certainly a valid one. Those looking for the best VALUE, I’ll usually recommend either Intel’s E6850, featuring two cores operating at 3.0GHz on a 1333FSB, or Intel’s Q6600, which offers four cores operating at 2.4GHz on a 1066FSB. Both the E6850 and Q6600 are available at most retailers in the $270-300 range, making them a great balance of performance and price.”

“Is it worth the ~US$1000 current pricetag or is there something that is faster from Intel that can be purchased for the same money? Well, for one thing, you won’t need a new motherboard if you stick to the 1066Mhz FSB, but with the quad-core line dropping in price, will this processor be deemed the black sheep of Intel’s higher end processor lineup?”

“ASRock introduces another new board 4Core 1333-eSATA2 using the newly released Intel P31 chipset in succession only days after the release of 4Core 1333-Viiv P965 main board. Can this board outperform and beat the P965 in performance and price?”

“By now, you’ve probably seen all the major upcoming boards in the market from this year’s CeBIT and Computex coverages, but we happen to actually have a Foxconn X38 motherboard on hand to give you a closer preview of what to expect. For a high-end motherboard, the Foxconn X38A looks deceivingly subtle, with no fancy cooling or elaborate technology claims to be seen.”

“The people that will be taking advantage of this new processor will be the new system builders trying to get their best bang for the buck at the moment. Seeing this processor can be purchased for under US$200, it is a lot cheaper than the US$320 E6700 it is replacing.”

“For years, Universal abit has been manufacturing top of the line motherboards, and the trend still continues with the IP35 Pro. This motherboard is loaded features that any enthusiast or mainstream user would enjoy. The Intel P35 chipset is at the heart, and boasts great performance.”
