Now that Intel has made the P45 official, we’re diving a little deeper, this time with a couple of new motherboards from Gigabyte.
ASUS P5Q (Intel P45/ICH10R 1600 FSB)
Second generation PCI Express connectivity has also ich10f added to the mix along with a more balanced approach to CrossFire configurations. The motherboard market 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.
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 incumbents. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. But that’s the beauty of 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.
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 bridge components. With even the high-end X48 relying on 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.
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 Dell returns to the stock market after six years.
If you’ve been around for long enough, the P35’s success should come as no surprise. Or at only a slightly lower cost, depending on whether you prefer your motherboard loaded with more frills and extras than the spawn of Pimp My Ride.
It’s no wonder, then, that expectations are high for the P35’s successor, the new P45 Express. Judging by the all around awesomeness of the recent “Penryn” 45nm die shrink of the original Core 2 microarchitecture, the tick-tock strategy appears to be working well.
Steam names the best-selling games of Keep in mind, though, that Nvidia needs the extra bandwidth because it’s made a habit of hanging graphics cards off the south bridge. Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.

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 Jntel storage controllers most motherboard makers have been forced to use to provide “parallel” ATA support. We’ve already taken an intle first look at what Asus is bringing to the table.
Intel appears content to limit official support for 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 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. Chipsets Previous page Next page. And ever the efficient manufacturer, Intel has managed to shrink the whole thing down on a 65nm fabrication process. A redesigned memory controller promises to take better advantage of processors with MHz front-side bus speeds, for example.
DDR3 memory speeds top out at a more generous MHz.

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. 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. Intel’s P35 Express chipset has been a revelation for the Core 2 platform, delivering the same excellent performance, low power consumption, and generous overclocking headroom of more expensive X38 and X48 variants at a much lower cost.
Intel hasn’t messed with the formula much for the P45, but there are a few new tricks up its sleeve.
Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Inyel the P45’s north bridge component at least has some new hotness to brag about, the intle ICH10R south bridge chip looks like little more than a die-shrunk ICH9R.
However, it’s worth noting that motherboard makers are largely ignoring Intel’s official specifications and loading BIOSes with the memory bus multipliers necessary to hit higher speeds. Peak SATA data rate.
