AMD ends single core 3000+ and 3200+ line

By Justin Mann on
Initially rumored, and then thought only to extend to a few processors, it now seems that AMD is ending several Athlon64 lines, no longer offering them for sale and halting manufacture. It affects a total of 16 individual CPUs, all of the 3000+, 3200+ Socket 939 varieties. They are all single core chips, and will be no longer available come the end of this month. While AMD claims this comes due to the market's demands (“customer request”), given the prices of the FX and X2 cpus, it's hoped that AMD's decision will allow them to offer their other CPUs at a better price point. Though all CPUs eventually cannot be ordered, typically a CPU stays available for many years, and is not cut as short as this. It makes you wonder what is up over at AMD.
