AMD G34 Motherboards Spotted

Some of the first AMD socket G34 motherboards were caught on camera, at the ongoing Computex event, by Inpai. The new socket succeeds the G3MX, which was discontinued in its development process itself. It facilitates upcoming six-core, and twelve-core "Magny-Corus" processors by AMD, which will use HyperTransport 3.0 system interface (for the first time on the enterprise AMD platform), and support the quad-channel (per socket) memory interface. One of the first processors in line for this socket is the based on the "Istanbul" six-core silicon.

The Inventec G34 HPC motherboard (left, below) will be targeted at the server and HPC markets. The two sockets are wired to twelve DDR3 DIMM slots per socket, each array supporting a 256-bit wide (quad-channel) memory interface. The Quanta G34 looks to be more workstation oriented, featuring several PCI-Express slots, and eight DIMM slots per socket. Like Socket F, the new socket physically will be a land-grid array, with pins on the socket, and contact points on the processor package. Its pin-count is known to be 1974.

"Magny-Corus" = many cores.

I dont think the one on the left has enough ram slots.

It's two slots per channel, typically enough for workstations.

yep, new architecture from the ground up. thats what 12-core will be based off

Quad channel, a good sign, wonder when this will roll over to the FX/GX series.

they aren't designing just server CPU's :laugh: desktop CPU's should be the same
but i wouldn't hope for much at this point, that way you will never be disappointed :) will just have to wait and see

EDIT: i take that back, just saw slides that show that consumer side will not see more than 4 cores even in 2011.

Err, no.
The name "Magny-Cours" comes from a racetrack because of AMD sponsoring F1 racing.
Just like Shanhai, Barcelona and Istanbul are race tracks.

Brightsideofnews went through the complete naming scheme of AMD recently, Here.

Magny-Cours is perhaps a many core processor, but that fact has nothing to do with the name. A common mistake I just had to clarify :)

And "Magny" is French, meaning "Great", not "Many".

In short, "Magny Cours" is "Great Course"
