AMD’s Socket 939 and 754 End-of-Life Dates

author alang

DailyTech previously reported AMD Socket 754 processors would outlast Socket 939 parts. We’ve received confirmation that Socket 754 processors will indeed be available for a couple months after the early death of Socket 939.

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ and 4000+ will be the first to get the axe on July 2nd of this year. Right before 2007 rolls around AMD intends on discontinuing seven Socket 939 and 754 processors. AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+, Athlon 64 3200+ and 3000+ Socket 939 processors will cease to exist December 31st, 2006 leaving the Athlon 64 X2 4800+ as the sole Socket 939 processor available.

Athlon 64 3200+ Socket 754 parts will no longer be available either. Sempron 3300+, 3100+ and 2600+ models will also meet the same fate on December 31st. The last Socket 939 processor, the Athlon 64 X2 4800+, will be discontinued in Q2’07 with the Sempron 3400+.

This leaves the Sempron 3000+ as the last Socket 754 processor available. It will last one more quarter and join other socket 754 processors in Q3’07, marking the death of socket 754.

As previously reported, Socket AM2 processors equipped with 2×1MB L2 cache are being phased out in favor for 2×512KB L2 models after a very short production run. Windsor 2×1MB parts will be shipping until December 31st, 2006.

After December 31st, 2006 there will be no more Athlon 64 X2 processors with 2×1MB L2 cache for Socket AM2 available.
