but thats all that matters to most people. m2 is supposed to be for crazy people/rich people. its only supposed to have high end processors at launch, and for a while.
ddr2 is the only improvement for this socket. same chip architecture. same chipset. nothing significant.
i think that if amd didnt announce/release m2, it would only make 939 stronger. and it would let people work on a new chip instead of a current one just converted to use a new memory type.
m2 is a waste of time and money in my opinion.
