Mobo makers review launch of AMD Socket-M2 processors
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) plans to launch a series of 940-pin Socket M2 CPUs – a dual-core processor codenamed Windsor and the single-core Orleans and Manila processors – in the second quarter of 2006, according to unspecified motherboard makers that have reviewed the chip vendor’s latest roadmap. As a result, AMD’s Socket-939 processors are expected to be phased out one year after the release of the Socket-M2 CPUs, indicated the makers.
Except for the Manila series, the Windsor and Orleans lines will integrate AMD’s “Pacifica” virtualization technology, the makers noted. The dual-core Windsor CPUs will be part of AMD’s Athlon 64 X2 line, whereas the Orleans will be featured in the Athlon 64 series with the Manila to be part of the Sempron processor line, according to the makers.
AMD has started sampling its Socket-M2 CPUs with its customers, said the makers, adding that the actual release will not kick off until the second quarter of next year, a little later than expected. As reported on October 17, DDR2 demand was expected to grow significantly in the first quarter of 2006, buoyed by the launch of AMD’s Socket-M2 processors during that period.
