Foxconn DigitaLife X38A Intel X38 Express Motherboard Review  - Foxconn DigitaLife X38A Intel X38 Express Motherboard Review
Fri, January 25 2008 | 5:12PM | PermaLink Feedback?

As with past memory transition periods, motherboard manufacturers are releasing products which will appeal to fence-sitters by supporting either DDR2 or DDR3 memory. The good thing about these boards is that in the short term you can stay with inexpensive DDR2 memory, and when you're ready to get a quad core processor and DDR3 prices have come down to earth, you can switch to DDR3 RAM. In this review PCSTATS is testing out Foxconn's DigitaLife X38A motherboard, an Intel X38 Express and Intel ICH9R platform that supports both DDR2 and DDR3 memory formats. The Foxconn X38A works with 45nm Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad processors, and every other socket 775 CPU that runs on a 800/1066/1333MHz Front Side Bus. The DigitaLife X38A has four DDR2 and two DDR3 memory slots, these accommodate either 8GB of DDR2-1066/800 memory or 4GB of DDR3-1333 RAM respectively. Memory types cannot be mixed together though.
