New retention mechanism
AMD's new LGA-1207 is ready for quad-core Opterons
Although at this time, details are scarce, we are able to reveal some images of AMD's next-generation Opteron socket, called Socket F. AMD's Socket F will be a LGA-type socket with 1207 pins, and is an entirely new design from current Opteron sockets. We've read that the new socket will be used for upcoming dual-core Opterons as well as quad-core Opterons. The new socket comes with an updated retention mechanism.
Intel adopted the LGA socket design with Prescott to reduce cost and also to reduce the defect rate on processors. After all, would you rather scrap a $600 CPU for a bent pin, or a $100 motherboard for a bent land grid? A few days ago, we got
of the upcoming Intel 771 LGA socket for Xeon motherboards.

I heard differently , but can't say. Even with DDR2, they will more than likely take Intel out back and beat the crap out of em again. It would be really cool if they got HT up to 2000/4000 with DDR2-800. The way it looks, they are going to drop the mobile 65nm first and add L3 to the Opteron in 2007. They actually have to for 16 way servers, but it's reasonable that they will want to increase performance before the new architecture and L3 will increase perf.

DDR3 has such low capacity; 32 devices per channel if I recall correctly. It's not optimal for the server market.
