Intel Socket B vs AMD Socket AM3

We have previously reported on two
new sockets for Nehalem CPUs
in 2008 and this time round we will take
comparative look at the new sockets offerings from Intel and AMD. Socket B is
LGA1366 where the extra contact pads is due to the integrated memory controller on the CPU and AM3 is most likely still be
Socket 940. The first CPU offering from Intel to be on Socket B will be
Bloomfield from the Nehalem family while the first 45nm processors from AMD will
be based on Socket AM3 to appear somewhere in mid 2008. Both Socket B and AM3
will support DDR3 1066/1333/1600 memories and interconnect technology is CSI
(Common Serial Interconnect) and Hypertransport 3.0 respectively.
