Introducing AMD's AM2 Platform

It is official, tomorrow is the day AMD will finally announce the AM2 platform for desktop processors. AMD originally had plans to launch the chipset on June 6, 2006, but shortly after the announcement that Intel's Core 2 Duo processor would launch at the same time, AMD bumped the launch date up to May 23, 2006.

AMD's AM2 platform consists of a new socket and pin-out for AMD's desktop processors. AM2 uses 940-pins, just like the existing Socket 940, but the the new pin-out means PGA-ZIF AM2 and PGA-ZIF Socket 940 processors are not compatible. The major difference between AM2 processors and Socket 939/940 processors is the migration from DDR1 to DDR2. Since the introduction of the K8 architecture in 2003, AMD has opted to place the memory controller on its entire line of desktop, mobile and server processors. As a result, new AMD processors do not need complete motherboard revamps, but motherboard manufacturers still have to accommodate for much denser DDR2 pin-outs.
