    "By far the most interesting thing about the CPUs from a physical standpoint is their pincount. The ClawHammer has 754 pins (up from 462 on the Athlon and even up from 603 on the Xeon) and the Sledgehammer has a whopping 940 pins which is just over twice as many as the current generation Athlon."

    The Hammer CPU will require new Socket and Chipset due to its 64bit archatecture.

    The Hammer socket resembles the P4's uPGA Socket only with around 500 or so pins for the clawhammer and around 800-900 for the sledgehammer
