AMD is preparing to launch its Socket M2 based processors in April. These new Socket M2 processors will feature dual-channel DDR2 667MHz memory support and HTT is increased from 200MHz to 333MHz.
The initial line-up of the Socket M2 includes Athlon 64 FX (Windsor), Athlon 64 X2 (Windsor), Athlon 64 (Orleans) as well as Sempron (Manila). Even the budget Sempron series will support Dual Channel therefore Socket M2 will completely replace Socket 939 and Socket 754.
These processors are still 90nm parts and thus it is unlikely that they will have highed clockspeeds than 3GHz. This may make it possible for Intel to overtake the performance crown with its Conroe in the second half of this year, according to VR Zone.
