No more 3000+, 3200+
 
In what is turning into a graveyard of discontinued AMD processors, it has come to DailyTech's attention that a single-core Athlon 64 3000+ and 3200+ Socket 939 processors are getting the axe. AMD has just notified its distributors that it is terminating the Athlon 64 single-core Socket 939 3000+ and 3200+ components.

Not exactly a surprise, as Dual Cores are getting to be definite mainstream.

Not only that but the higher number cores offer a higher profit margin. They've probably got the fab to the point where there's no need to bin to lower speeds so doing so is just cutting the bottom line a bit lower.

Those chips were great overclockers from what I heard.. never had one though. I wish I'd saved my cash, bought a 3200+ and OCed it rather than buying this terrible 3800+ for ££££ :(

Mine could do 2.7GHz on air.. so yeah I would consider them great overclockers. The Opteron equivelents did slightly better though.

The Opteron is actually the upgrade processor I'm planning to get in a couple of months. Well, I'm thinking about it. My system is great for me now, so there really is no need for me to upgrade. I'd probably upgrade my graphics card first.

I'm still trying to figure out what is causing my overclock to freeze all the time... blagh.

Tell me about it. I wish I knew also :S

I will have to pour out a little liquor for my 3700+ on July 2nd. I still love this chip.

Greg King 06-24-2006 03:44 PM

I love this chip. Primarily because I am too cheap to get a better one but still....I understand the business in stopping making them. They will be missed, this Sandy is a great CPU.

Same OC on my 3000 with stock air. They were beautiful.

Liquor was poured out and tears were shed. So long sweet procs, so long.
