Default AMD ponders new desktop sockets: No DDR2 until 2006

CHIP FIRM AMD appears to be re-thinking its attitude to sockets when it introduces desktop dual core chips - which might not come until the very end of next year or perhaps even 2006, according to reliable sources.

According to those motherboard partners of AMD, it wants to avoid manufacturers having to re-tool too much when it launches dual core chips for desktops, but it is considering a pin out of 942 or 941, the sources said.

The two evils ....

Intel -
S423, S478, S775+DDR2+PCI-e
AMD -
S462, S754, S940, S939, S1207, S941 or S942

2005 looks promising. Both makers show concerns with their partners' well being. Sounded nice.
