What's the main different from intel P series chipset (P35, P55, P67...what else?) n X series ( X38, X58 etc) ? Many of them have made me so confused. Maybe P55 is better than P35 and X58 is better than X38. what about X58 and P55, or X58 n P67? How should I make comparation between 2 different chipset series? I exactly have no idea...
P35 supports Core2Duo/Quad CPUs
X38 is pretty much the same as P35.The only difference is that X38 supports Crossfire at dual x16 mode;whereas,P35 supports it at x16x4(or few models which support it at dual x8 speed)
P55 supports Intel Core i3/i5/i7 socket 1156 CPUs
X58 supports Intel Core i7 socket 1366 CPUs
P67 isn't released yet but it support Intel sandy bridge CPUs(socket 1155)
What about P45? It has the same socket as P35, isn't it? If each chipset supports only certain socket, why intel make 2 chipsets which only support a socket (LGA775) ? Are there any other features that P45 has?
