ED#63 : Intel BoneTrail Release Imminent!
The Intel DX38BT "BoneTrail" motherboard had been delayed to a Q4 launch from its original scheduled launch in Q3 due to technical issues. It even missed the planned October 10 launch. But now, our sources say that its release is imminent. The BoneTrail will finally see the light of day.
For those who are wondering what the fuss is all about, the BoneTrail is armed with the new Intel X38 Express chipset will finally allow users to run two PCI Express 2.0 graphics cards at full X16 speeds, without resorting to an NVIDIA or ATI motherboard.
However, enthusiasts who have been waiting for this motherboard may want to wait a little longer because Intel will be launching their X48 Express chipset and the "BoneTrail 2" motherboard within 10 weeks of the BoneTrail's launch!
The Intel X48 Express chipset and the Intel BoneTrail 2 motherboard will be the first Intel chipset and motherboard to officially support the 1600 MHz FSB. So, it might not be a good idea to buy the BoneTrail when the BoneTrail 2 is coming so soon after.
