Yes, becuase it has 754 pins! The Athlon and Athlon XP cpu,s socket A will not accomadate it.

uses two different socket types i think.

754 and 940 for the fx.

You should also be aware that AMD plans to move all its new processors to yet another new type socket this summer

To be able to upgrade in years to come it may be worth waiting for the motherboards that will support this new design
