abit launches IX38 QuadGT Speedster

abit today announced their brand new enthusiast Intel X38 chipset based IX38 QuadGT Speedster motherboard. With the IX38 QuadGT Speedster you are prepared for the latest 65nm and next generation 45 nm Core 2 Extreme/Quad/Duo processors with up to 1600 FSB. A total of 8 GB high-end DDR2 1066 MHz system memory offers sufficient expandability for all your needs. Dual X16 PCI-E 2.0 offer highest bandwidth for hardcore gaming. The uniquely abit engineered electrical design including next generation digital PWMs and 100% solid state capacitors warrant best power characteristics resulting in lower consumption, higher efficiency and extreme stability. The IX38 QuadGT Speedster: Quality Pure!



Next Generation Digital PWM
With the new Smart-Slave technology the power switch frequency can effectively be quadrupled over conventional PWMs. Digital PWMs offer most precise and consistent voltage supply for reduced power consumption, less heat and increased components' life. Next Generation Digital PWMs provide highest accuracy for the best computing experience ever, noise interferences are avoided and energy efficiency is highly increased by realizing ideal resistance ratings (low RDS) during charge-discharge power switching.

The power inductor is magnetically coupling phases to replace conventional multiple discrete inductors. This solution improves performance 4x and more. Energy is stored longer and the current can be regulated more accurately.

Ceramic capacitors provide for excellently low resistance characteristics (ESR) thereby reducing power consumption and electrical noise to an absolute minimum.



100% solid state capacitors
These advanced capacitors consist of conductive polymer and therefore offer a vast range of advantages such as higher temperature tolerance, higher ripple current and improved frequency characteristics over conventional electrolytic capacitors.

Extendor Silent Dual Pipe Cooling
The copper based dual-heatpipe heat sink with extra slim fins and an additional cooling Extendor maximizes heat dissipation by linking the North Bridge high-fin heat-sink via a heatpipe to on extra high-fin heat-sink.

The Digital PWM silent cooling heat sink consists of extra slim and extra high fins thereby effectively increasing cooling. In addition this special design utilizes the airflow of the CPU cooler to blow heat out of your case through the back panel. You also have the option to mount an extra active fan on top of the heat sink.

abit puts you into the driver's seat. With best quality components, next generation electrical design for power efficiency and increased stability, as well as the innovative Extendor cooling solution you are ready for speeds well beyond 1600 MHz FSB.

No support for DDR3...am I missing something here? perhaps I have just lost the plot some!

Was thinking of spending a little cash on a christmas pressie for meself, like a mobo that supports DDR3, 2Gig of DDR3 and maybe a Q6600 G0, I thought most of the 38's supported DDR3?

DDR3 is not the way to go. Treat yourself better with the ddr2 800 crucial ballistix.

This mobo looks all promising and what not, where are the benchies?

What does the QUAD GT in the name represent?

Very nice looking board, nice layout, cooling system and all that.

That depends. Some mobos can achieve very high fsb speeds. On these intel chipsets, to achieve 600fsb or more, your ram has to be able to run at 1200MHz DDR or better. That's easy to achieve with DDR3, but less common with DDR2.
