Intel X38 motherboards finally begin to surface

Filed under:

It’s been a tick since we first saw a rig running on Intel’s X38 technology, and while we’ve been expecting a launch for some time now, it seems that a couple of mobo manufacturers are finally helping to (unceremoniously) kick things off. Up first is the Asus P5E3 Deluxe, which of course supports DDR3 1800MHz dual-channel memory, dual PCI Express 2.0 x16 lanes, 802.11n WiFi and an Energy Processing Unit (EPU) that allows the CPU power supply “to be digitally monitored and fine-tuned with improved VRM efficiency in heavy or light loadings.” Additionally, MSI has loosed its X38 Diamond, which throws in its exclusive Circu-Pipe cooling system and Dual-Channel PWM technology. ‘Course, we’d already heard about Gigabyte’s GA-5BXWV-RH mainboard (shown after the jump), but here’s to hoping a few more companies hop on board soon to give potential customers more than a handful of options.

Error'd: Crashing Las Vegas -

Surely, you’ve seen the commercials and are familiar with Las Vegas’ First-Commandment / Clever-Marketing-Tagline: What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas. I suppose we can bend that rule today and share a couple pictures that Christopher Kimbell snapped while he was walking down the strip…

… and later that day …

As for the rest of the pictures that Chris found on his camera after his vacation? I think we'll just leave those in Vegas…
