Default Socket F AMD CPU- no pins, some pics of the CPU

Quote:
You will notice that the F part has no pins, just flat LGA pads like the LGA775 P4s. In addition, the pads are much more closely spaced than the pins on the 940. Overall size and shape is about the same (comparing to the 940), but the newer chip has two indents on the top and bottom of the PCB. That PCB is also and organic substrate rather than the ceramic of the older Opterons.
Inquirer has some pics.

Neat..I guess. At least server builders wont have to worry about bending cpu pins anymore. I was worried about my 4400, couldn't imagine having to put in a $1k CPU..

Better to bend a pin on a $100 mobo than a $300 CPU.

Or $2200 CPU in the case of the high-end Opterons.

Great now if break a pin it will only cost you your mobo.

I wonder if the future will give rise to mobos with the socket on a riser card? That way you don't have to chuck the whole mobo if you screw up the socket. Just replace the riser.

don't think mobo manufacturer would have problem replacing the socket if the pins on the mobo are bent.
