AMD's Thunderbird finally fully fledged

SocketA

The new socket for Thunderbird will have no less than 462 pins and therefore look a lot different than the Socket370 used by Intel processors.

Socket370

Currently, SocketA is only supported by AMD's good old 750 chipset and VIA's recently renamed Apollo KT133 chipset. We are expecting a lot of new SocketA motherboards at Computex / Taipei, which is starting today.
