These days nearly all developers of hardware constantly introduce new brand-names for nearly every single technology they implement in order to attract attention of potential clients. They brand data-transfer patterns, they call L2 cache with special names and some even brand their own processor’s buses so to show their own uniqueness.

AMD is not an exception from all the companies in this industry and also wants to attract massive attention and show that it is different from the others.  As we have managed to find out, AMD will introduce a special trademark for the Socket 940 intended for the Opteron processors. The company will brand the socket as “AMD Socket 940” showing that even if other companies, such as Intel, Sun, VIA or Transmeta decide to utilise processor packaging with 940 pins, there was no mess with different types of Sockets, since AMD Socket 940 is intended for AMD x86-64 chips only.

AMD Opteron x86-64 CPUs appear on the surface on the 22nd of April, that is on Tuesday, next week. Keep your eyes opened since there is plenty of interesting things coming your way before and after the mentioned date.
