AMD Socket M2 CPU Processor Running!
HardOCP had some pictures of the all new AMD CPU based on Socket M2 (940pin). They’ve got a picture of a post screen, stating it’s an AMD Engineering Sample CPU, with 1GB of 667MHz DDR2 memory.
AMD Socket M2:
Here are two pictures of AMD’s working Socket M2 processor. This particular unit is running at 2.4GHz. You will notice the “extra” M2 pin bringing the total pin count up to 940 (from the current 939). Just to note that we are not showing you a current 940-pin Opteron, you will notice that the areas that are void of pins are in spaces other than what you would find on a Opteron processor. This processor is also lacking the usual ceramic Opteron substrate. The second picture shows the POST screen where we have highlighted “AMD Engineering Sample” along with the noted DDR2-667 memory bus speed.
