    Socket 754 is to outlive Socket 939 according to recent roadmaps, with the (formerly 'budget') socket still being available for a few months after Socket 939 is phased out sometime next year, as it makes way for mass adoption of AM2.

    All but one S939 processor will cease production on December 31st 2006. The remaining S939 processor will be the Athlon 64 X2 4800+, which is due to be phased out by mid-2007.

    As for Socket 754, the AMD Sempron 2600+, 3100+ and 3300+ will be killed off by the end of the month with the rest in the series to be killed by the end of next year.

    Socket 754 came to the market in late 2003, whilst Socket 939 came about in mid-2004, so it looks as if S754 will reign a year longer than S939 due to the Sempron series still running on S754. With so many AMD processors coming to an end we should have a nice batch of new processors being made on AM2 and beyond.

    Aha!

    So, the "last of the V8 Police Interceptors" (the cpu I use in fact on this rig now & what I call it, because this "mass extinction of socket 939" was spoken about here before in the past few weeks now) isn't QUITE "a piece of history", yet...

    :)

    * They are good cpu's imo & experience thusfar (2-3 months now using it)...

    I knew about this about almost 6 months ago. AMD even said so.

    Will 939 still last a while though?

    Dam I knew I should have bought a Siempron/754 combo instead of this dam Opty/939...LOL

    They better show that AM2 is faster first...

    Will 939 still last a few years, even if they don't make it anymore, will it still be useable, as in "up to date".

    Of course, its still faster than the AM2

    So maybe getting a 754 wasn't a mistake after all... having said that, with only Semprons left, I doubt it.
