james__bean said:So... is that a 939 part with single channel memory? I don't get it, its clocked just like a 3500.
lithium726 said:yeah i didnt notice the newcastle thing.. that sure is odd. the only thing i can think of is that AMD is completly phasing out 754? moving the 3400+ to 939 just doesnt make any sence
SparkedFire said:AMD will discontinue the Athlon 64 line on socket 754 in a matter of days unless you already want to say it has happened. No new Athlon 64 socket 754 chips are expected to be released nor are planned. Socket 754 will be purely Sempron based. A kick in the a** to early adopters if you ask me. at the bare minimum there thould be another 754 release like a 3900+.
lithium726 said:exactly my thoughts. not contuing s754 and athlons is just like nVidia not putting an AGP slot of thier NF4 ultra boards. kick in the ass too all the early adopters of the 6800 series(me). i think its kinda dumb to not have any more CPU releases for 754 when such great boards are out for it, while s939 has a bunch of crap boards.. just dont make sence to me..
oh, and do you have a source for this?
bobsaget said:BTW: Hey sparkedfire! I'm from CPU too! Nice to see ya! Ben is also on these forums a little too...
SparkedFire said:i agree. although keep in mind there will be future Sempron additions to the socket 754. It isn't compleatly dead yet . source is from good old anandtech.
lithium726 said:yeah, but who the hell would buy a DFI board with a.. a... SEMPRON!!??
lithium726 said:edit: i noticed on anand, on the amd roadmap, that there was no 3400 for s939 listed at all. i think newegg has screwed up
