Default AMD Socket M2 delayed


AMD Socket M2 delayed

Mid-year, not spring

By Charlie Demerjian: Saturday 28 January 2006, 07:11
WORD HAS IT that the pretty pretty socket M2 from AMD will be a little late. How late? Well we were hearing March, then March/April, AKA late Q1/early Q1. That was the way it would stay for months and months. It looked like a Cebit rollout, availability starting soon after.

Then all of a sudden, we heard September, a big oopsie in the chips world, a 2Q slip. That was the story for about a week, late Q3. Soon after, a bunch more people said it was not late Q3, but early Q3, July or so to be exact. Moral of the story, it is looking an awful lot like a 1Q slip, and a mid-year launch.

I'd rather have it late and right than rushed and wrong (like Intel).

I agree. I really don't care that M2 has been delayed, i'm not going to have a new system by than anyway.
