With the release of the 45 nanometer Yorkfield and Wolfsdale CPUs from Intel, the need for high-end motherboards to support them has become apparent. The first official support for the new CPUs comes in the form of the X48 chipset, which is an update from the X38 chipset meant for the high-end computer enthusiast wanting the latest features and performance to match it.
ASUS builds motherboards, video cards and other computer components from a variety of manufacturers including Intel and NVIDIA. The latest motherboard in a long line-up of Intel based motherboards is the X48 based ASUS P5E3 Premium Wi-Fi-AP@n board on the test bench today. It should be interesting as it is the second X48 board on the test bench so letís see what itís all about.
