AMD Socket G34 Pictured

Postby Apoptosis » Fri Aug 01, 2008 5:38 am

Just noticed we don't have a thread started on this and the news broke a few weeks ago. The G34 socket is the updated version of the highly secretive G3 socket that was to replace Socket F (1207). As far as company documentation goes, G3 ceased to exist in March 2008, and has been replaced with the G34 program instead. The first of these sockets will be available for developers in early 2009.The G34 has a total of 1974, which is 767 more pins than AMD's current LGA1207 socket.

Here is the new AMD Socket G34:

The new socket, dubbed G34, will also ship with two new second-generation 45nm processors that are due out in 2010. The first of these processors, 8-core Sao Paolo, is described as a "twin native-quadcore Shanghai processor by one AMD engineer. Shanghai, expected to ship late this year, is AMD's first 45nm shrink of the ill-fated Barcelona processor. This past April, AMD guidance hinted at a 12-core behemoth of a processor. This CPU is now named Magny-Cours after the French town made famous by its Formula One French Grand Prix circuit. Both of these new processors will feature four HyperTransport 3 interconnects, 12MB of L3 cache and 512KB L2 cache per core.

I thought shrinkage in manufacturing processes was supposed to lead to smaller CPUs! :rolleyes:

The CPU is smaller, but you can only shrink physical pins down to a certain point

Keep in mind this will be for DDR3 and that means hundreds of new pins... Same for the improved HyperTransport stuff.

Yep... just to give you an idea, the X48 chipset has 1300 pins! I'm guessing X58 will have alot less pins since the memory controller will be on the CPU, which is one of the reasons why Nehalem has 1366 (?) pins

Nearly 2000 pins on that AMD CPU is huge though...!
