AMD Socket M2 processor roadmap

Posted on Saturday, November 05 2005 @ 18:01:40 CET by

AnandTech has posted a new AMD roadmap and writes the Socket M2, the 940 pin DDR2 compatible Athlon 64 socket, will launch a bit later than expected. Mass production of these chips is expected to start in late April.

Additionally, Socket 939 will continue to stick on the performance desktop market well into Q1 2007 and even well beyond that for low-end processors like the AMD Sempron.

By the end of Q2 2006 we can expect a couple of new processors from AMD which will feature DDR2 support and Pacifica virtualization technology:
  • Windsor: Dual Channel DDR2, Pacifica enabled Socket M2 dual core
  • Orleans: Dual Channel DDR2, Pacifica enabled Socket M2
  • Manila: Dual Channel DDR2 Sempron, Socket M2
  • These new processors will debut on NVIDIA's M2 platform with the MCP55 and C51XE chipsets.
