AMD quad-core processors to need Socket F

Posted on Sunday, Jan 29 2006 @ 00:26 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
By the end of this year AMD will roll out its first quad-core processors and according to the company, these processors won't be compatible with the current Socket 939 and Socket 940.

These new quad-core processors will only be compatible with the Socket F platform.
InformationWeek is also reporting that AMD will roll out its dual-core processors that support virtualization later this year. While quad-core AMD processors are expected to roll out in 2007, AMD is already preparing for the ramp up for production. Earlier this week we reported that AMD is currently gathering resources to retool Fab 36 to prepare for production on next-generation 65nm fabrication.
