Gigabyte Technology, a leading mainboard maker, on Thursday released a statement concerning the introduction of Intel's i925XE core-logic that aims high-end computers.
The recently released core-logic sets from Intel - i915G, i915P, i925X and derivatives – brought dual-channel DDR2 SDRAM memory, PCI Express x16 and x1 lanes for add-in cards, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 (i915G only), 4 Serial ATA-150, high-definition (Azalia) audio as well as some other important capabilities, such as integrated WLAN or promising RAID technologies.
Intel's i925X core-logic was said to deliver from 2% to 7% performance increase over systems powered by Intel's former flagship offering i875P at the same clock-speed of central processing unit. However, even more important performance benefit from the previous generation is likely to be driven not only by silicon innovations, but by pure boost of processor system bus up to 1066MHz, something that will be supported by i925XE.
