As we already reported, the X48 Express chipset should build upon the X38 by adding support for 1600MHz front-side bus speeds and DDR3-1600 memory. By contrast, the X38 “only” supports a 1333MHz FSB and DDR3-1333 RAM. The X48’s 1600MHz FSB support should come in especially handy when Intel releases its Core 2 Extreme QX9700 processor, which should have a matching FSB and a 3.2GHz clock speed. DigiTimes says the QX9700 will become available around the same time as the X48.
