So if lets say...AMD..releases a new chip...say AthlonFX...and the chip contains 974 pins..then they will need a new socket to support the 974 pins the processor uses.
Of course the exception to this is the "old stuff".....socket 5 and socket 7 and "Super socket 7".

I'm pretty sure the chips had more than 7 pins
