New AMD Socket

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
A couple days ago I read somewhere that AMD would be coming out with a new socket CPU. The new MB for this socket will take DDR2 ram.
Any one have any more info on this??

Hrm, I may just hold off on buying my new computer.

Hope someone can verify this.

But yeah, it is going to support DDR2, and rumored to support quad core chips.

Its going to be 940 pin socket that uses DDR2. But it does not support the CPUs from the current 940 socket, such as Opterons.

with X2 5000+s and FX 62 procs and Athlon 5000+, those are the best processors comming out for the M2 socket, and ive also heard that you can buy an adapter to put on your skt939 mobo so you can use the m2 socket processors.

now + rep me. please
