AMD's AM3 with DDR3 comes in 2009

AMD promises the Stars


At the last AMD event in Warsaw, AMD promised us the Stars, at least two of them in the next two years.

The current Star is AMD's platform and it will be able to cope with AM2+ CPUs. It supports DDR2 from 400 to 1066. It also supports both 45 and 65 nanometre CPUs with dual power processing lanes, the VID’s are serial and parallel and the diode does the thermal monitoring.

The socket and the platform can provide up to 110W to a CPU and an additional 20W to Northbridge.

Another Star, that we've mentioned more than a year ago will sit in socket AM3 and it supports Hypertransport 3. It supports DDR3 1333, dual processor power planes and serial VIDs. It is scheduled for 1H 2009.

It has a new thermal monitor and calls it Thermal Sense Interface (TSI), and just as with AM2+ based Stars it might need an 8 Mbit bios. It will have the same maximum power delivery.
