AMD gets Microsoft endorsement for new socket

@ 2006/05/23
Firms like HP, Alienware and Lenovo will sell machines using the socket. AMD used the verb "to transition" to say it has moved the whole stable of its Athlon 64 X2 chips to this startling new socket and has also released Athlon 64 X2 5000+ and 4000+ dual core brains.

A man from Microsoft called Mike Sievert claimed his firm "is excited" about socket AM2 because it will pave the way for a new operating system which he calls "Vista".
