Default AMD's Opteron-oriented Socket F surfaces on web

AMD's Socket F processor interconnect has appeared on the web.

Dutch-language site has the pictures, which reveal the 1207-pin - count 'em - socket in all its glory.

Socket F is expected to debut in 2006 as the interconnect for future dual-core AMD Opteon 2xx and 8xx server processors, all with 'Pacifica' virtualisation technology and probably AMD's 'Presidio' security system. Like Socket M, the desktop and Opteron 1xx interconnect, Socket F will support DDR 2 SDRAM, certainly clocked to 533MHz and 667MHz, and possibly up to 800MHz.

AMD's plan for Socket F emerged in May 2005, but little has been heard about it since. Most roadmap leaks have focused on Socket M and the desktop side of the story. Today's pictures at least indicate that the server interconnect beast may be real.

Looks freakin' cool.

But, i really hope they don't go the Socket LGA 775 route. It's so poorly designed. installing a HS&FAN is a back breaking experience.

So I take it that this is AMD's version of the New Dual core Prescott Pentium D? It's like a Dual 939? Very interesting. That CPU is going to be pricey!!!
The Dual Core Prescott with HT is only $1019 at Newegg...OMG!!!!
