AMD’s M2 socket, lowering performance?
Early reports of the performance of CPUs sporting this new socket indicate that their performance is quite a bit less than what we’re used to from a similarly configured socket-939. This is surprising since DDR2 provides more bandwidth, so should in theory also be able to offer better performance. However some report a reduction in performance by as much as 50%, that’s no small margin to be honest.
So this begs the question whether AMD will launch the new socket-M2 on schedule, or whether they’ll postpone the launch to wring more performance from it? But wait, haven’t we seen a similar situation before?

50% ?? that's ridiculous
AMD will support DDR2 800 right ?
I'm pretty sure DDR800 or 400 MHz, with tight timings like 4-3-3-8 or 4-4-4-8 won't be any slower than what we have today.
