AMD to migrate to Socket M2 in 2006

— 10:43 AM on May 9, 2005

DigiTimes is reporting that AMD will move its Sempron, Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX, and Opteron 100 series to a common "M2" socket in the second half of next year. Opteron 200 and 800 series chips will apparently migrate to a 1,207-pin "F" socket. Both of AMD's new sockets will support dual-channel DDR2 memory, and M2 should allow users to easily upgrade from low-end Semprons all the way up to high-end Athlon6 4 FX or dual-core chips.
