As Far as I know:

Fixed some X38 problems that showed their ugly head during the test period

Full Support for the FSB 1600 MHz

...

I'm totaly confused why intel launched the x48 so soon... there must be something really wrong with x38 ?!

I hear that lot of manufacturers have complained abou this early launch of the new chipset... but it seems that Gigabyte has the first one again.
If I remember correctly they were the first ones with the X38 also.


Does any 1 know more about the X48 changes from the X38 ... ?
