Default INTEL P35 AND G33 CHIPSET preview by TechGage

TechGage looks at Intel's brand-spanking 1333MHz FSB, DDR3 compatible mobos which will have improved memory bandwidth and latency- especially when coupled with the upcoming Nehalem CPUs.

Intel today is taking the covers off their P35 and G33 chipsets, and we are going to take a look at what's new and what you should expect. Due to tight timing, we are not giving our performance reports today, but will be later this week. Before we finish the article, we will also take a look at two other new chipsets due out later this year, X38 and G35.
The chipset many of our visitors will be most interested in is P35, which is placed in Intel's extreme lineup and is the successor to P965. At first glance, it offers a few notable features over P965, such as DDR3 support. Saying that, it natively supports DDR2 as well, so this won't be a full scale transition. This, is a good thing, as DDR3 will be far too pricey for most people, without a huge performance gain.

More from TechGage

PC perspective has an actual review where for some reason they compared ddr3 1066 to ddr2 800 on them...

...And here's the reason from Anandtech in their review:

there is no way to run the P965 at a 333 base FSB (1333) with memory at either DDR2-800 or DDR2-1066. The available ratios do not allow this setup. Similarly the P35 chipset motherboards will not allow the DDR3-1333 setting unless the CPU is set to the 1333 speed. Setting the P35 to 10x266 limits the top memory base setting to 1066 without overclocking. With limitations on both sides the choice was made to test all boards at 2.66GHz, with P965 at 10x266 and P35 at 8x333.
