M2 is scheduled to arrive next year, but 939 will probably still be around for that as well. At this point M2 is for DDR2, and DDR3 (presumably another socket) will be 2007. But that's too far out to be the eventual roadmap. They may yet skip DDR2 but who knows.Ragnar Dan wrote:When is AMD moving from the 939 pin socket, now, as was reported somewhere several months ago? Irked me a bit to learn that. I think it's not much more than a year or 2 from now, but can't presently find any roadmap showing it.

Now we know why.

Since so much I/O is DMA controlled, I have to wonder how big of a difference this will make in many cases.
