Socket AM2 (yes, AM2, not M2) is supposed to come out in April. New motherboards should cost about $10 more than current Socket 939 motherboards (MSI K9N
). New versions of old processors, as well as new processors, to come out. The next version of the FX-60 is coming (FX-62? FX-65?).
You guys may think that the biggest change is DDR2, but for me, its the HTT being changed from 200 to 333. Yes, you heard right, the HTT is being changed from a Default of 200 to a Default of 333. Welcome to the days of pain-in-the-*** overclocking.
940-pin Socket, 4 x DDR2-SDRAM slots, SLI support.
The chipset is MCP55, which is supposed to be Nvidia's new high-performance chipset for Socket AM2 (thought it might have a different official name?).
