The X38 Diamond also comes with the X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI-Express x1 card, like the P35 Diamond, and it also has two extra PCI-Express x16 slots from an extra chipset – these both support up to x4 bandwidth. However, this is at the expense of including an extra PCI slot (of which there is only one) and to be honest why include two PCI-Express x4 slots instead of a single PCI-Express x8 which is more suitable for high end RAID setups and GPU-Physics (if it ever arrives).

Will you be purchasing an X38 with your next system? – or perhaps you’re an Nvidia fanboy. Let us know in the PureOverclock Forums.
