By the end of this month, most motherboard makers will receive samples of AMD’s next-generation 940-pin platform for sampling for the March 9-15 CeBIT. Those motherboard companies, however, will need to follow customer confidentiality agreements with AMD and only showcase the respective M2-based models during the show while not revealing detailed specifications. AMD plans to stop production of its 939- and 754-pin platforms by the first quarter of 2007.
