im not complaining but just wondering
If you're going by my images above, they are a bit misleading in that the Rampage one shown still has the mosfet heat-pipe assembly attached , while the image of the Maximus Formula one has had that section removed before the image was taken.

Also, I just found this on Anandtech forums -

ONLY P45 IS 65NM

The X48 is actually a rebinned X38, still 90nm.

I cannot find it again.

Source please? I don't care if someone said it on a forum, I want Anandtech to say it themselves.

As a result, Intel has turned around a new chipset part: the X48 northbridge. It has an almost identical featureset to the X38 northbridge, including support for XMP. However, interestingly it looks like XMP is only supported with two DIMMs only, meaning if you want 4GB @ 1,600MHz using four DIMMs, you're going to be out of luck.

X48 is still paired with the ICH9 southbridge that first saw life with P35, it has six PCI-Express Gen-1.0 x1 slots, six SATA 3Gbps with Intel Matrix RAID support, HD Azalia Audio and 12 USB 2.0 ports. The Intel Extreme Tuning Utility we've been waiting for since pre-X38 looks like it has been pushed back to launch with X48 as well. It'll be interesting to compare overclocking utilities once this arrives seeing as Intel is actually last to market with this kind of utility, being well behind Nvidia's nTune and AMD's new OverDrive utility.

It has very similar core features and is even built on the same (90nm) process as X38, so what else is there? Talking to Asus about the board, we were told that the only major benefit is when you use the memory OC modes and really ramp up the memory speed to 1,800 or 2,000MHz.
