AMD sampling AM2 platform

Posted on Tuesday, April 18 2006 @ 18:25:42 CEST by


The Inquirer reports AMD has been shipping test Socket AM2 platforms for almost two weeks now. The company wants to assure system integrators and OEMs to use its upcoming designs for their Summer/Autmn refresh PCs.
We also know that motherboard manufacturers are playing with AM2 DDR 2 supporting chipsets and that some of the motherboards might be finished by the middle of next month. No one will launch before Computex in June, but most of the big ones will be ready for that date.

We were warned not to expect miracles from the AM2 platform but we also learned that it should work nice and steady, it is just the memory controller that AMD changed inside of the CPU. Manufacturers such as Nvidia used this opportunity to redesign their chipsets and re-brand them. You know the story - new lamps for old - but that is the way this game is meant to be played.
