AMD Socket M to sample next month

The Inquirer reports AMD will likely provide OEMs with samples of the Socket M in late February:
But, as we reported last week, AMD isn't rushing to shove Socket 1207 chipolatas out the door. The chips for Opterons which will support DDR3 and pinouts for quad core, are expected to be rolled out with fanfares during April, and be ready to run in May.

This all means that AMD is likely to show off the 1207 bling to customers at the CeBIT show in Hannover, and make a song and dance about the whole affair at the Computex show in early June, in Old Taipei.
The availability is allegedly slated for July.
