AMD To Demo Quad Core In June

AMD says that quad-core processors will only be compatible with
Socket-F platforms. While Socket-F (1207 contact pads) does support single-core
and dual-core processors, it will be the only "current" socket to support
quad-core. AMD clarifies that it meant no user who uses a Socket-F platform with
a single-core or dual-core processor will have to change boards in order to use
upcoming quad-core processors. AMD Quad Core processor will be scalable up to 32
processors and above and equipped with L3 cache onboard. Other features include
support for DDR3 and FBDIMM, HyperTransport 3.0 with fault tolerant I/O,
Enhanced RAS (Reliability, Availability, Serviceability), memory mirroring and
I/O Virtualization.
