Default Re: AMD 45nm CPUs will be Socket AM3 only

On one hand, I was pissed when AMD dumped S939 for AM2 almost immediately after I bought a S939 CPU and mobo, under the pretense that it was "necessary" for their next cpu line. Of course, when the next cpu line came out, they went to another socket, AM2+, anyway.

Still, I try not to worry much about it, since everytime I've ever purchased a new CPU, I got a new mobo with it. But I have to admit, when it came down to Core2 vs. Phenom, this little fiasco weighed in my mind a bit before deciding. Anyway, sorry for the necro post, but this thread caught my attention.

Default Re: AMD 45nm CPUs will be Socket AM3 only

Haven't used AMD since their K6-2 procs. Even later on when they were spanking Intel with their FX series I was using a P4. I'm not a fan boi, just fortunate that my 18 month new-build track was elongated to 24 months and conroe was on the horizon...so I waited.

I'm thankful to AMD because without them we likely wouldn't have gotten Centrino or Conroe for a few more years.

S! AMD!

My brain is the size of a peanut! Triple Core!! Hypertransport!!! Incompetence!!!!! Job Layoffs!!! God I love you AMD!!!!!!
that's kind of a ****ty argument. while it is true that Intel offers better performance, they could offer even better performance by adopting some of the technology that AMD has.

that being said, Nehalem will have an onboard memory controller.

EDIT: **** i just realized this is an old thread.

This makes me happy that I didn't upgrade my 939 to AM2. I will wait for the new Phenoms.

I'm glad I jumped off the AMD side for the last two years.
