Asus P5E3 Deluxe sets new memory bandwidth record
While the memory bandwidth is impressive, the question is what X38 can do with a CrossFire setup. Unfortunately, the placement of the PCI-E ports doesn’t allow us to run Crossfire with P5E3 Deluxe, at least not with the [extreme] cooling we want. Don’t worry though, we have a ASUS R.O.G. Maximus Extreme coming, and it has the right layout to show what Radeon HD 2900XT Crossfire can do with two native 16X PCI-E 2.0 slots… This has to be considered quite impressive as the clock frequency of the CPU affects the bandwidth considerably and previous records have been achieved with much more extreme cooling. The voltages used were 1.610 V for the processor and 2.16 V for the memory.
