That will be the new Socket LGA type board with 1,207 pins. That will run some newer dual cored as well as the new quad cored models coming out. This will mainly be a server class board. The new boards will also be running the soon to come DDR3 type memory.

Even though Socket F appears to have a lot of potential in store, the first Opterons that hook into it don't really seem to profit from that. The most positive conclusion we can draw is that the performance is roughly equal to that of Socket 940.

This will be an upgrade over the Socket 940 there shady. This will mostly be a slightly larger sized chip as well. Just a look at some screens of it seem to point that out.

The boards themselves were scheduled for july 11th and pushed by AMD to the beginning of August according to some articles. One of those articles also had a report on the AM2 boards possibly being discontinued. Gee I'm glad I went with the 939 type board for the time being. That was found at http://www.techreport.com/onearticle.x/10192

They do. They are listed under server motherboards, because they are, well, server motherboards.
