Asus Socket F board pictured

— 2:25 AM on March 10, 2006

The Inquirer has snagged a picture of one of Asus' upcoming Opteron server boards. The board features two F-type sockets, which are 1,207-pin Land Grid Arrays (LGA) designed for AMD's upcoming Opterons with DDR2 memory support. It's also interesting to note that the board appears to have a couple of HTX slots (PDF). HTX slots are mechanically similar to PCI Express, but they're flipped and hook directly into a HyperTransport interface. It's essentially HyperTransport in slot form, giving peripherals high-bandwidth, low-latency access to a system's processor.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
