AMD Socket Types

For our AMD sockets, we begin with AMD 940 and contrast the differences it has.  You’ll learn the differences between the LGA and a pin grid array (PGA), why that is significant, what processor types it uses, and how/where it lives on the motherboard. You’ll also learn how it differs from the AMD AM2, for example in confirming the number of pins it has, the type and range of processor speeds it runs, versus the AMD AM2+, AM3&3+ and what advantages this socket delivers including supporting up to 8-core. We round out this lesson by examining specs of the high end AMD FM1 socket including the processor its supports, and the Socket F which is a land grid array and why that is significant in terms of motherboard types that use this component.
