    AMD to release dual core processor

    AMD will release its dual-core processor for desktops in the second half of next year

    Advanced Micro Devices plans to release a dual-core processor for desktops in the second half of 2005, stepping up its schedule to better compete with Intel.

    The company has completed the design of a dual-core processor that will be sold as an Opteron chip for the server market and as an Athlon 64 chip for the desktop markets, said Barry Crume, a director in AMD's Opteron division.

    So this will be S939 or a new socket?

    Good news whatever.

    I highly doubt it will ever make it to 939, might have some that are 940 (first ones are going to be opterons), but will probably need a whole new socket. I've heard rumours of a socket 900.

    900? why would they decrease the pin count...? more is better. why not just keep ONE socket for all the chips (even if they are incompatable with some motherboards).

    That would be a nightmare.

    lol, yea that would be a good idea. You could just get a pile of chips and pop them in the socket to fry one after another until you find one that works

    But seriously, if you think about it, the reason that chips with the same sockets work with the same mobos is not just that they fit but because they work in the same way. So if in the future there are going to more flavours in the chip market there will be different interfaces/(Pin numbers) to go with them

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I was thinking.
