well what i had in mind was just merging all the sockets into one, even if that means you have different sized squares all in one...if that makes sense.

meh, w/e. if it doesnt exist, it doesnt exist.

AsRock Used to manufacture a motherboard that supported both Intel and AMD CPU's. (I believe it might of been two versions from one company) I can't remember exactly, but there were two sockets on one board.

its a pity this stuff isnt standardised. i mean, imagine how much simple it would be for picking out hardware.

my god weve drifted way off topic.

quote hiigaran
i mean, is it possible to have a socket 1336 support a 775 and/or AM2 if the right pins and layouts were available?
Not only the sockets are vastly different, but there are also technical reasons why this is not possible.

1366 use QPI
775 = FSB
AM2/+/3 = HT

Then you have different implementations of memory controllers... etc

So it's not going to happen

It seems like we would need to find a chipset that would be generic enough to support both processors. The ASRock 939Dual supported the AM2 with very few structural changes from what I understand.

Unfortunately ASRock has given up the field from what I can tell

yeah i can understand that. its a pity. it would be such a great idea.

just a quick side question though, apart from AMD motherboards supporting AM2 up to AM3, are the mobos with support for more than one type of cpu? i mean, is it possible to have a socket 1336 support a 775 and/or AM2 if the right pins and layouts were available?

The OEM market rarely does :/ generally these things go through a group / alliance and have established standards. It's why companies like shuttle are self-reliant for their products because they don't conform to design spec.

If I'm getting your point you would prefer all the cable ports out of the side instead of the front of them right? :/ for most companies it would push the wires against the sidepanel and obstruct them with a support rail.

It's one of those annoying things where it promotes better things but getting the masses to adopt it would be like pulling teeth.

why would the standard need to change? most if not all cases have a small gap between the psu and the side of the case, so it would work. right?

They would have to change the industry standard for power supplies or create a new class :/ given that it's getting a bunch of grumbling competition under the same roof to agree on something I'd say the chances aren't so hot. Unfortunately while we see things like this relatively cheap, most OEM boxes and generic cases still use traditional form or even cages which would obstruct the cables.

Blargh, its a nice thought, heck even 90 degree connectors right out of the PSU sockets would be nice instead for some cases. (The P193 has the cable routing to the side and directly above the chamber)

heres an idea i just thought of. if more and more cases allow you to have the power cables go behind the mobo to get them out of sight, then why not have the power cables from the psu positioned accordingly. instead of the front of the psu (where the cables currently come out from, why not have cables that are designed at 90 degrees, and come out from the side of the psu facing the motherboard side of the case? you wont ever see most of the cables right?
