AMD first integrates the memory controller onto their processors and is now looking to integrate PCIe as well. The expected timeframe for the PCIe integration onto CPU core will be H2 2006 and AMD Opteron based on Socket F 1207 is expected to take up this integration. You can expect what those extra 267 pins compared to the S940 Opteron are for now.
