If you wait until it's on the market, along with some motherboards - you'll not only know for sure (rather than just guessng) - but there'll be some proper tests, and you can make an informed buying decision.
Keep you're eye on Toms Harware Guides if you're desperate - he'll be ahead of most others, and certainly in advance of what's actually on the market.
socket is something like 754pin socket click here i think that amd are waiting for microsoft to be ready to release the 64bit edition of xp so that the amd chip has the maximum power behind it from the offing
Cheers, just happened to see the amd website and thought "I havent seen any magazines with this in?" You all answered my question thanks for your help. I guess the reason I wanted to know is I am still on an Athlon (socket a) processor and thinking about upgrading to AthlonXP but I have a knack of upgrading one day and the next something new coming out. I know what you will say "Thats computers for you" but I was being litteral. I recently purchased an all in dv editing package (firewire included) without thinking that I could have upgraded my motherboard with I394 and bought the software for the same price. Cheers all. I have another small concern but will start a new thread.
