AMD samples AM2 platforms

post #1 of 9

Quote:
AMD has been shipping test AM2 platforms for almost two weeks now. It wants to convince system integrators and OEMs to use its upcoming designs for their summer/autumn refresh machines.

We also know that motherboard manufacturers are playing with AM2 DDR 2 supporting chipsets and that some of the motherboards might be finished by the middle of next month. No one will launch before Computex in June, but most of the big ones will be ready for that date.

erm, AM2

Its basically a K8 core with tweaks to the memory controller to allow use of DDR2 RAM. Plus an extra pin.

AM2 is a 940 pin socket, but different from Socket 940.

Yes, AM2 has 940 pins. But as StepsAscend said, it is not the same (and is not compatible with) the old server socket 940.
