    Will the new AMD hammer be based on Socket A or a totally new design. Or does anyone even know?

    I've seen a pic of AMD's socket 748 (or something?) that could be for it, makes sense.
    There is a whole lota pins on that thing.

    Are they gonna do what Intel did? A much smaller socket but a pin at ever like half millimeter or something? Or is it gonna be like an extra large thing.

    Here's a pic of the "Clawhammer" and the size and HSF setup will be similar to Intel's P4. ;)
    Also this should be in the AMD forum so I'll move it over there. : peace2:

    well nvidia's new nforce2 motherboards supposedly are all about the athlon k8 series - does it really have all those pins?

    Is that a metal plate on the core? I thought I'd never see the day.....

    Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I think the C'Hammer supports both 32 & 64 Bit OS. That in part explains the increase in pin density.:hammer:

    Yes Nervagent55 that chipset is supose to support "Clawhammer" but it will have a different socket setup to what's used for the present Athlon/Duron one plus the memory controller would have to be dropped, disabled or modified as "Clawhammer" has an inbuilt one. ;)

    They did it for the K6 family I'm not sure about the K5 though I never had one. Why did they decide to lose the metal plate for the K7 familiy?

    Yes it will support both types and unlike Intel's Itanium it won't take a performance hit to do it which is why Intel is now workin' flat out on "Yamhill". :laugh:
