If you are looking forward to the upcoming X38 “Bearlake” chipsets that Intel has on the way, some sources are claiming they will be here as early as this month
. On top of that, the higher-performing X48s are also expected before the end of the year.
The X38s will all be based on a 1333MHz FSB, and last month there were mentions of the new chipset being ready sometime next week
. If Intel makes that date on time, it might give AMD a bit more to battle since they still have months to go before Phenom-based platforms arrive.
