AMD's new socket, FM1 has been spotted, the FM1 socket will be the platform for the upcoming "Llano" A-series accelerated processing units (APUs) in both desktop and notebook solutions. AMD will have a proper competitor for Intel's LGA1155/LGA1156-based solutions which rely on the processor's embedded graphics.

AMD have the upper hand as the APU will integrated a quad-core x64-64 processor with a DirectX 11-capable AMD Radeon HD6000 graphics core which should sport 400+ stream processors, a dual-channel DDR3 controller and a PCI-Express 2.0 hub. FM1 is a pin-grid array but the exact pin count is unknown. Llano APUs are expected in May/June of this year.
