AMD always tries to lure some journalists away from Intel's Developer Forum to check out some new products. Today the company showed off their three new sockets: the mobile Socket-S1, the Socket-AM2 for desktops and Socket-F for servers.
If you’re expecting something earth shattering from AMD or finally some specifications for their 2007 CPU lineup, you’ll have to wait longer. AMD tells us that after Socket-AM2 and its mobile/server variants are launched then they will begin talking about their new architectures. We’ve tried to get more, sooner, but haven’t been successful yet. Now on to what we were able to see.
