Intel is currently developing two new technologies which will be introduced along with the upcoming high-end X38 chipset for the enthusiast market in October. The two new technologies are named Extreme Memory and Extreme Tuning Utility. Extreme Memory technology will function similar to Nvidia’s SLI Memory allowing specially branded and certified memory modules to operate at higher performance levels when installed in a supporting motherboard. Intel’s Extreme Tuning Utility technology will provide an interface to enable the changing of BIOS settings directly from within the operating system making it easier to tweak settings and overclock the system.

The two new technologies are named Extreme Memory and Extreme Tuning Utility. Extreme Memory technology will function similar to Nvidia’s SLI Memory allowing specially branded and certified memory modules to operate at higher performance levels when installed in a supporting motherboard. Extreme Memory technology will only be available for DDR3 modules and will not support DDR2 memory. Currently, Intel is cooperating with memory makers including Kingston Technology and OCZ Technology Group to deliver Extreme Memory certified modules, with engineering samples predicted to be delivered in mid to late September. Intel’s Extreme Tuning Utility technology will provide an interface to enable the changing of BIOS settings directly from within the operating system making it easier to tweak settings and overclock the system. Intel’s partners have the option to customize the interface of the software tool.
