AMD has delayed to launch of its Socket AM3 processors from Q3 2007 to mid-2008.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has postponed launch of its Socket AM3 processors to the middle of 2008, from an originally scheduled third-quarter 2007, according to motherboard makers. AMD's first quad-core K8L desktop processor, the Altair, originally set to utilize the Socket AM3 connector, will be resident in Socket AM2+, indicated the makers.

The difference between AMD's Socket AM2 and Socket AM2+ is that the former adopts HyperTransport 1.0 and the latter HyperTransport 3.0, the makers indicated. Socket AM2+ is considered a transitional solution for AMD's K8L CPUs, the makers added.
