Dual-core processors won't boost motherboard sales

Posted on Tuesday, May 17 2005 @ 00:32:09 CEST by

DigiTimes wrote that motherboard manufacturers believe Intel's and AMD's new dual-core processors won't help to boost motherboard sales in short-term. They further added that AMD and Intel will start marketing their dual-core processors at the end of the second quarter and that new chips are expected later this month.
However, AMD’s new dual-core Athlon64 X2 CPUs will be Socket 939 solutions, and can be supported by current K8 motherboards, which will only need to have their BIOS upgraded, the makers said. In addition, although Intel’s Pentium D processor will require the support of a new platform based on 945-series chipsets, the high-cost of migrating to the platform may deter users from buying new motherboards, the mobo makers said.
