Default MSI P35 "Bearlake" Motherboards

We continue our post-CeBIT Intel P35 "Bearlake" motherboard preview with a new range of boards from MSI. This time, we managed to get a closer look at a DDR3 implementation and a wacky new chipset cooler in MSI's P35 Platinum D3 motherboard. That's right folks, the P35 Platinum D3 will have a full set of 1.5V DDR3 DIMM slots that will - according to MSI - support DDR3 speeds up to 1333MHz.

Like Gigabyte though, MSI will have two variants of their high-end P35 board, one with only DDR2 (P35 Platinum) and one with DDR3 (P35 Platinum D3). However, from what we've heard, you will have to wait a little bit longer for the D3 to hit store shelves. MSI have expressed that since the market isn't quite ready for DDR3 yet, they will initially launch the P35 Platinum first.

Now we've already covered what can be said about the P35 chipset in our last preview, so let's just get right into MSI's offerings. :: Articles - Coolest Hardware, Hottest Reviews

DDR3 won't be in full force for a year or two...look how long it took DDR2 to push out single DDR. We had DDR2 chips like 4 years ago.
