    The first pictures of the new AMD Opteron Socket F, which supports DDR2, are out. It looks like Intel's LGA775.

    This is the Opteron socket if I am not mistaken? M2 is 940 pin, and this is 1207. Can't read... German? hehe... :D

    Can't read either so it looks pretty much the same to me.

    Are the pins in the socket and not the cpu? That looks totally different...

    Yep :wtf:

    Now no more worryng about breaking a pin off that expensive cpu.

    Will socket M2 have a similar mechanism?

    Huh...what is the point of that motherboard pin thing? And also, is F the new generation (as in revolution) or just an alternative like Socket 940/754 is to 939? 939's only been out for what...like a year and a half, why would they make a new generation now? Dang, staying up-to-date is not looking good right now, in the middle of all of these evolution/revolution releases. I guess I'll just let everything settle down for a while, this is too crazy.

    Propably not, it should be pretty much the same like S940 with differences in pin placement.

    PS. Babelfish does the translation:

    |EDIT| I also read from other forums that LGA style socket would be "more signal friendly" in some way. If that's correct, LGA could be better choice than PGA, especially to server CPUs.

    I can read it (Afrikaans and Dutch are very closely related :D ) and it doesn't say much lol! Only that the Socket F is for Opterons. And probably dual core also since they have that split of pins in the middle they say. That means they are treated as two individual CPU's although they are in the same socket... They say it supports DDR2 and has PCI-Express controller pins added. And yeah, M2 will have about 940 pins and will support DDR2 yes. ;)
