According to a report by DigiTimes, citing sources at motherboard makers, Intel will target at the enthusiast market with the release of a couple of new technologies which will be introduced along with the upcoming high-end X38 chipset in Q3 2007.

According to the sources, a new Extreme Memory technology will allow certified DDR3 memory modules to operate at higher performance levels when installed in a supporting motherboard. Kingston Technology and OCZ Technology Group are among the first memory makers to cooperate with Intel to deliver Extreme Memory certified modules.

The second new technology to be introduced, called Extreme Tuning Utility, will allow tweaking the BIOS settings directly from within the operating system, making it easier to do things such as overclocking the system.
