AMD starts socket migration
A REPORT on Digitimes claims that AMD will migrate all of its desktop chips to the M2 socket during 2006.
But that's not all. Socket F, according to the wire, will have 1207 pins while the M2 will be a 940 pinza, it claimed.
When we asked a senior Intel staffer what the D in the new branding Pentium D meant, he said it stood for "different". We won't tempt fate by asking AMD what the F stands for. Many many words start with the letter F. Including funny.
All this socket stuff is potentially very confusing but Digitimes also claims that all Opterons including dual core chips, will be 1207 pins, except for the 100 series.
We'd better all start counting then, hadn't we. The next generation Opterons with 1207 pins are, as we reported last November, the "bastard offspring" of the K8 architecture, and not K9 as it was going to be.
Before we know where we are, Intel will start rattling on about new sockets as well. It will probably be later rather than sooner, but it will come, mark our words.
