Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. However, it’s worth noting that motherboard makers are largely ignoring Intel’s official specifications and loading BIOSes with the memory bus multipliers inntel to hit higher speeds.

Intel P45 – Wikipedia
Intel hasn’t messed with the formula much for the P45, but there are a few new tricks up its sleeve. But that’s the beauty icu10r the P35; it’s equally capable of powering mainstream desktops, high-end gaming rigs, and the sort of balanced best-bang-for-your-buck systems that enthusiasts tend to build.
In addition to refreshing the P45’s PCI Express component, Intel redesigned the chip’s memory controller to better exploit the MHz front-side bus speeds made common by the Penryn Core 2 refresh.

Heck, we’re even over Intel’s decision to exclude an IDE port from its recent chipsets, in part because Vista plays well with the JMicron storage controllers most motherboard makers have been forced to use to provide “parallel” ATA support. Peak SATA data rate. Intel appears content to limit official support p4 the MHz front-side bus required by its obscenely expensive Core 2 Quad QX flagship to the high-end X48 chipset, which also doubles up on the P45’s PCI Express lanes.
Customize The Tech Report Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Or at only a slightly lower cost, icy10r on whether you prefer your motherboard loaded with more frills and extras than the spawn of Pimp My Ride. With even the high-end X48 relying ich01r Intel’s DMI chipset interconnect, it’s no surprise that the P45 uses the same link to tie together its north and south bridge components.
Intel’s P45 Express chipset
If you’ve been around for long enough, the P35’s success should come as no surprise. The motherboard inteel is about to be saturated with a tidal wave of new designs based on the P45 Express, each with its own set of unique features and capabilities.
Steam names the best-selling games of Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! We’ve already taken an early first look at what Asus is bringing to the table. While the P45’s north icu10r component at least has some new hotness to brag about, the chipset’s ICH10R south bridge chip looks like little more than a die-shrunk ICH9R.
Gigabyte GA-EPDQ6 PCSTATS Review – Intel P45 Express and ICH10 Chipsets
And ever the efficient manufacturer, Intel has managed to shrink ich10d whole thing down on a 65nm fabrication process. DDR3 memory speeds top out at a more generous MHz. So well, in fact, that I think it may have been applied to the P45 Express, which in many ways looks like a die-shrunk P Judging by the all around awesomeness of the recent “Penryn” 45nm die shrink of the original Core 2 microarchitecture, the kch10r strategy appears to be working well.
You’ll only be able to pair up to 8GB of DDR3 memory with the P45, which given current market prices, may be a blessing in disguise.
ASUS P5Q (Intel P45/ICH10R 1600 FSB)
Intel’s mid-range chipsets have been consistently solid year after year, establishing a virtual dynasty in an industry that doesn’t always look kindly upon untel. Keep in mind, though, that Nvidia needs the extra bandwidth because it’s made a habit of hanging graphics cards off the south bridge. A die-shrunk refresh Intel employs a “tick-tock” cadence for processor development, rolling out new architectures on each tock and then shrinking them with more advanced process technologies with each tick.
Mobo makers are also advertising P45 boards capable of hitting MHz quad-pumped front-side bus speeds despite the fact that Intel only endorses FSB speeds up to MHz. The onboard peripherals and x1 slots normally serviced by south bridge PCIe lanes aren’t exactly begging for bandwidth these days, but it wouldn’t hurt to have generational parity between PCI Express implementations in the P45’s north and south idh10r components.
Now that Intel has made the P45 official, we’re diving a little deeper, this time with a couple of new motherboards from Gigabyte. Chipsets Previous page Next page.
