A report from Hungarian site HWSW has a close-up photo of the new AMD AM4 processor socket, and it looks like this will have 1331 pins per the report. (We did not count!)

AMD’s newest AM4 socket will support both New APUs and FX series CPUs, unlike the previous generation which split the two between AM3+ and FM2+. This is great news for system builders, who now have the option of starting with an inexpensive CPU/APU, and upgrading to a more powerful FX processor later on – with the same motherboard.

The new socket will apparently require a new cooler design, which is contrary to early rumors the AM4 socket would be compatible with existing AM3 cooler mounts.
