no because servers dont have pci-e slots like gaming mobos do, and server cpu's are made for different things that arnt gaming basicly

Single die: 8
Single CPU: 16 (server only, not client)

Those numbers are for today, that could continue to go up in the future.

i wonder what bulldozer/bobcat series will be called?
phenom III=bulldozer and athlon III for bobcat?

Nah,they need to come up with something other than PhenomIII or AthlonIII,because Bulldozer doesn't have much in common with the Phenom/Athlon 64 architecture,people will also think it's "just another AMD Phenom/Athlon,Intel's are better".

That is all we can say at this point.

since you only comment on the server side of things and not client
does this statement apply to the client side also?

I'm pretty sure that Bulldozer and Bobcat CPU's will have new names, while Llano will keep the Phenom II name for the time being.

Yeah there are server boards with pci-e slots.

Intel changes sockets faster than AMD in my opinion.

Seriously? Intel's next gen is going to be on a new socket. Why not complain about that?

Honestly... AM2/AM3 lasted a long time. Let it go.

Heh, so many "1055T vs i5-750" threads relied on Bulldozer compatibility as an advantage.
Oh well, AM2/3 still had a good run, so I'm sure their new socket will live longer than the new Intel Sandy Bridge sockets.

Can't wait to see what Bulldozer brings to the table. Would love a 16-core CPU, but that'll probably take a while for us mere consumers.

This new socket will be more like AM3+. Current AM3 = compatible with all current AMD processors. AM3rev 2 (or whatever the naming will be) = compatible with all current AMD processors + bulldozer. Just like the jump from AM2->AM2+.
