Question about Socket M2

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
With all the hype over the possible release of AMD Socket M2, I was wondering what would be the chances that the socket would be replaced with a new socket quickly? My example of this happening is socket 940 being replaced with socket 939. I would have been pissed if I had upgraded to socket 940 only to have it replaced quickly by 939. Any thoughts on the subject. When 940 was released I wasn’t paying attention to the performance gaming computer market like I am today.

Well, there was a time when AMD sold desktop CPUs for 940 (my friend has a s940 FX-53). I do not expect M2 to be replaced any time soon, but as of right now, details on it are lacking, so I would wait untill we have more info.

Was it socket A that preceded socket 940? Does anyone remember the general feeling toward socket 940 when it was released? I know that no one really knows what will happen with socket M2 but am just asking for opinions based on past facts.

Don't get Yiffy mad... 754 is sort of still around - my chip is by no means outdated, just low-end...940 is by no means 'bad' - an fx is nothing to laugh at...m2 is just bringing ddr2 (bleh) and security crap - not much of an upgrade, according to my ever-trusty c627627.com

And if you really think 754 is dead...we'll see what your chip maxes out at...try beat my 3.1
