    Was wondering if this generation of skt 939 processors is at an end - as that would affect my next upgrade. Anyone have any idea whether AMD are to make more skt 939 cpus?

    They're going to still be producing them, yes. However, the FX-60 is to be the final incarnation of the s939 CPUs so no new models.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about just yet, I can see Skt 939 being around for the next 5 years at least. Afterall the 64bit applications, Operating systems are just taking off and some are still in the early stages. TBH this is proerbly the year where 64bit goes gold ;)

    I doubt that, surely they will focus on M2 and phase out 939. As soon as M2 is less expensive than 939 no one will buy 939. If M2 stays more expensive than 939 they aren't going to get a quick return on the work that went into the new memory controller

    939 was surely there attempt to get a good grip of the market as the first 64 bit cpus

    erm AMD wont be making ANY more products on the 939 socket... they MIGHT make some value stuff, but theres NO way its going to be around in 5 years time.

    amd have said they will be supporting the 939 socket into 2007 so they will be making more processors - they have confirmed it themselves. how fast they will go is another matter.

    they will not be making new products though, just they will keep pumping out the current 939 range... maybe without the FX's and dualcores

    2007 isnt that far away is it, its like 10months away... 10months life left in 939 then ;)

    true - i could have sworn i saw somewhere that they said they might release some of the 90nm chips on 939 though, unless i dreamt it (which is quite possible)

    Hi,

    I have read that AMD will be phasing out the socket 754 (Sempron) line and replacing it with socket 939 Semprons (or similar).

    Dual-Core Semprons maybe? :)

    s939 is on 90nm already.

    I'm hopeful there will be more Dual core opterons as there will be an installed semi professional base of socket 939 who AMD will need to service.

    isn't the fx-60 the only 90nm chip?

    You sure you weren't thinking of the 65nm chips instead, like the new Intel ones ;)

    No. For the standard A64, the Winchester, Venice and San Diego cores are all 90nm. For the Sempron, Palermo (and maybe another, I forget) is 90nm. All dual core chips - Manchester and Toledo - are 90nm.

    90nm has been on Socket 939 for way over a year now, if not closer to a year and a half. You must be thinking of 65nm ;)

    Edit: Beaten to it.

    i suppose that is true... AMD might "beta" test some 65nm chips on the poor 939 users ;)

    yeah it must be the 65nm i was thinking of - i keep getting confused with nvidia who are about to move to 90nm ;)
