ASUS intros mainboard with built-in DDR3 memory

ASUS P5K3 Premium

ASUS has broken the traditional approach to gamer-friendly mainboards and revealed a new version of the P5K3 Premium. The Intel-based board overcomes some of the more common bottlenecks to overclocking by embedding memory directly into the board itself; 2GB of 1,333MHz, DDR3 RAM avoids the serial nature of RAM slots and talks to each chip individually, cutting the timing in half and allowing those with the right knowledge to boost RAM clock rates above 1,500MHz. Using Intel's P35 Express chipset also future-proofs the system with support for both today's Core 2 Duo/Quad processors and upcoming 45-nanometer Penryn chips.

As is the case for most ASUS releases, the company declines to list prices or when this special edition of the P5K3 Premium will ship, though the hardware is certain to be available to North American PC part suppliers within the next few weeks at a price higher than the normal P5K3 Premium and other boards that ship with traditional memory slots.
