Intel X48 chipset

Intel recently launched its high-end 3 series chipset X38 in the market, however with details of a chip revision, the X48 chipset, exposed, some motherboard makers are concerned that the X48 may hurt demand for motherboards based on the X38 chipset, according to sources at motherboard makers.

With the X48's launch expected to come only three months later than that of the X38, it could lead to a short life cycle for the X38, causing a delay in market demand.
