Llano FM1 socket and chip pixelized

Written by


Smaller than AM3+
Chinese hacks have scored a rather rare photo of what appears to be AMD’s upcoming Llano processor and the all-new FM1 socket.

Unlike Intel, AMD isn’t in the habit of introducing new sockets every two weeks and the new FM1 is the first truly new AMD socket in years. It appears to be somewhat smaller than the current AM3 socket, but we weren’t too keen on counting the actual number of pins.

If AMD doesn’t change its ways, and we are hoping that it won’t, the new FM1 socket will be with us for years, which might offer a rather tempting prospect – upgrading the CPU and GPU at little cost, in next to no time. Also, you'll be able to make fun of anyone who bought an Intel platform, with a two-week socket shelf life.

Although Llano was supposed to appear last year, several delays pushed it back to mid-2011 and we’re expecting to see it in action around Computex time.

You can check out the photos, as well as Llano CPU here.

910 pins I think

905 on the recount 31x31 with 3 less at the corners. 1 less at 1 cofrner. 4 sets of 2 missing and 7x5 missing at the centre

Surprising that the FM1 socket has less pins than AM/, even though it has to carry graphics data.

And IIRC, isn't the FM1 socket supposed to be the mobile version, the FT1 being for desktop?

Something strange here, as the amount of holes on the new socket does not match the sample chips pins.

New Socket:

31x31=961
Corners and 2 pins=3+3+3+4+2+2+2+2=21
Center Square=5x7=35
961-21-35=905

However, the bottom of the chip they show has 940 pins:

31x31=961
Corners and 2 pins=3+3+3+4+2+2+2+2=21
961-21=940

Maybe an older chip being shown???

probably 905 for the mobile CPU with an FM1 socket and 940 for the desktop part with FT1 socket.
