AMD AM2.. What We Know So Far

So how much do we know about AMD's AM2? Other than DDR2 support(PC2-6400), still not all that much. Today Techgage.com gathers up the information available, also providing an interesting shot of a motherboard supporting the new technology.

"One major thing many people are interested in, of course, is whether in fact the DDR2 will perform better on the AM2 than on current Intel's. Even with DDR1 as it stands, Intel sometimes does have a hard time keeping up in term of bandwidth and latency. With AM2's memory controller, there's no real doubt that it will indeed perform better. That's not a fanboi comment either, it's obvious that DDR2 does not blow anyone's socks off as it stands, so hopefully with AM2, it could happen."
