Once again, the hype machine or maybe more like the rumor machine got into full gear with claims touting the X48’s greatly improved performance.

To complicate the situation, the release schedules for the Nitel have bounced around from November to February and even at this point, we are still unsure. Log in Imtel have an account? However, depending on your motherboard, that top memory speed may only be available if you’re also running a MHz front-side bus.

We refer to these processors as boxed processors. The performance of the X38 was clearly not a step above the P35 upon release. Listing of RCP does not constitute a formal pricing offer from Intel. Thermal Design Power TDP represents the average power, in watts, the processor dissipates when operating at Base Frequency with all cores active under an Intel-defined, high-complexity workload.


From all early indications, it d48 going to be just that and then boom; it seemed like a major disappointment upon release. Even without those new features, the whole launch process seemed unorganized with only a couple of motherboards available at launch.
