Default IGABYTE X38-DQ6 Mobo - Final Version!

P35 was built on the P965s already popular design, however its memory controller was tweaked for DDR2 as well as adding the first DDR3 memory controller for the desktop. The ICH9R was also given to the P35 chipset.

While this was good, the enthusiasts still needed a higher grade chipset. Enter today’s contender, the X38. The new X38 chipset is designed to take over where the aging 975X chipset leaves off. Its abilities have been tweaked as well as some extra goodies. So let’s have a look at our first retail sample board, Gigabyte X38-DQ6.

Opteron 165 (2) @2.85 1.42 vcore AMD Stock HSF + Chill Vent II

3 and 5 FPS more for the stock DDR2 benches = 3%-5% boost

Power consumption increase, meaning hotter motherboard and possible the reason for the not mindblowing overclocks = bad

Does it justify the insane pricetags with cheap P35 boards available from Gigabyte? A clear no from my side.
