AMD Socket AM3 coming next year

Posted on Wednesday, March 29 2006 @ 21:51:47 CEST by

Soon AMD will roll out its first Socket AM2 processors and according to The Inquirer the chip firm is already planning to launch Socket AM3. This socket will feature DDR3 support.
That brings up the next question, what will AMD do for names? As a reader pointed out, with Opteron x85s out, that leaves two more speed bumps before it breaks its numbering scheme. Instead of going the Intel Optimal Septimal System route, AMD is going to take on a wholly user comprehensible numbering scheme, and insert a two into the Socket F part numbers.

This means 8xx will become 82xx, 2xx goes 22xx and 1xx begats 12xx. I would guess that AM3 parts will become 83xx and Cerebus will go to T4600.... ummm.... 8Fxx, no that stinks also. Maybe it should hire someone who understands consumers, say from a Korean conglomerate. That would do the trick.
