Released by AMD in May 2006, Socket AM2 is a socket architecture found on motherboards designed for desktop computer processors. Socket AM2 motherboards utilize an FSB (front-side bus) of 200 MHz and support six AMD processors: Athlon 64, Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64 FX, Opteron, Sempron, and Phenom. These processors range from a single core to quad-core, providing for powerful computing capabilities. Socket AM2 has since been replaced by Socket AM2+ and Socket AM3.
