I also hear there's a Socket F coming?? More pins...
Hmm??? What is this?? I wasn't aware of this... Socket S= Turion's next socket, and M2= Desktop 64bit AMD's new socket. Socket F=?? I will do research!
EDIT: MUAHHAH! I did some quick database research, and guess what I found, ALL THE STATS for Socket F! MUHAAHH!!
Here they are:
Socket F will support DDR2 memory, ECC Registered ONLY
This socket is designed for single, dual, and quad core Opterons ONLY (both low voltage and standard x86) with the exception of the 100 series Opterons which will use M2.
Socket F will use 1207 pin interface, allowing for much higher bandwidth.
Also, a bit on Socket S as well, since that popped up a lot. Socket S1 with 638-pins, which will replace existing Socket 754 for laptops (aka, Turion chips). This is a reduction of pins, indicating LOWER WATTAGE USAGE, and optomized bitrate compression factors (meaning MORE mobile)
