As we previously reported, Fudzilla confirms that AMD will release its
Magny Cours dual-die MCM server CPUs in Q1 ’10. They will be available
in both eight core (dual Shanghai) and twelve core (dual Istanbul)
options.

The Magny Cours CPUs will fit into the elongated G34 socket – which
accomodates 1974 pins. Clock speeds are expected to be scaled down to
deliver maximum power efficiency.

Magny Cours is expected to be a server-only CPU, thanks to its specialised socket G34. It has been rumoured in the past that a desktop version of the six-core Istanbul may be possible for the AM3 socket – although this possibility does not exist on the AMD roadmap. Magny Cours, as per the AMD roadmap, is the last major new product from
AMD till the next-generation Bulldozer architecture hits stores in 2011.
