First Intel X48 board spotted

GIGABYTE prep'd in advance

| Posted: Oct 22, 2007 9:42 pm

The lads at TechConnect have sourced some nice shots of what is believed to be GIGABYTE's upcoming X48 based motherboard with DDR2 memory support.


X48 is set for launch within the next couple months and will merely be a 'fine-tuned' X38 chipset with a few nice little extras.


The board we're looking at here is GIGABYTE's "GA-X48-DQ6" and looks almost identical to their existing X38-DQ6.


Features wise it has two PCI-E 2.0 x16 slots, 2x Gigabit ethernet, 6x SATA 3.0 Gbps ports and official support for 1600MHz FSB processors which should hit shelves by the end of this year.


Intel's next best high-end chipset since the X38, the X48 will arrive as soon as next month and one of the first manufacturers to get ready for its release is non other than Gigabyte. The Tier-1 board maker already has the design ready as the new chip doesn't require much work so a few tweaks on the 'old' X38 design did the trick. The first pictures of the DDR2-boasting GA-X48-DQ6 have now reached the interweb and show that the board looks similar to the X38-DQ6.
